I had the pleasure of being one of the four sub-committee members that recommended McKenna Management to run the New England Society of Association Executives. I was also an officer of NESAE's Board of Director's when she started and had the opportunity to work closely with her. Four years later the results speak for themselves, dramatic increase in membership, volunteer activity, attendance at events, number of annual events/activities, quality of the events/activities, and NESAE's net assets. I highly recommend McKenna Management to run your association.

Pam is wonderful to work with. She handles everything in a thorough, correct and detailed way. Yet, she does it without conflicting with the Board. In fact, her Board relations are another outstanding aspect of what Pam provides. I could not recommend her more highly.

McKenna Management has been and continues to be instrumental in managing our association. Whether it is organizing our professional conferences, producing top quality newsletters/e-blasts for our members, or simply performing the day to day business operations our volunteers struggle to find the time to do, Pam McKenna and her staff always make us feel like we're their only client. Our association has never been so organized thanks to McKenna Management.

It is without any hesitation that I would highly recommend McKenna Management for the management of your organization and your professional annual meeting.

I want to congratulate you on the fine work you are doing. John Rauseo always said the toughest job was running an association for association executives and I would agree. But you have made it look easy and very professional.

I would like to share with you some feedback about the SASA conference held at Turning Stone Casino & Inn in Verona, NY, this week. Specifically, I’d like to compliment the exceptional work done by Soula Spaziani.
From the very beginning of the event, Soula stood out as a positive, warm, and dynamic greeter. She was helpful and attentive during the entire conference. In particular, her constant smile and genuine willingness to guide us were defining characteristics of the experience. Everything pertaining to this conference was well-organized (communications, logistics, etc.) Attendees didn’t have to give a second thought to anything the entire time, and Soula was a major reason for this positive experience. I am writing you because Soula’s work and presence were indeed exceptional.
My previous career was in public school administration, which included my organizing and/or overseeing events like community fairs, homecoming weekends, multi-school professional development conferences, etc. As such, I can relate to the need to cover the million-and-one details, and the value of being 100% positive and helpful 100% of the time. Soula was all of that and more. She made this event smooth and worthwhile for those of us in attendance. In my opinion, she exceeded all expectations for great attitude, hospitality, and enthusiasm.
I have no doubt that, if I attend future events that your organization plans, I’ll encounter the same positive experience.

I wanted to briefly comment on how professional the communication has been with respect to the Massachusetts Society of Health-System Pharmacists (MSHP) Honors and Awards Banquet. The “Event Reminder” with a link to every possible option is greatly appreciated. The periodic times that I correspond with McKenna Management, responses have been timely and professional.
My sincere thanks for the support McKenna Management has brought to MSHP.
