"Thank you, Gaby! We could’ve never got accomplished what we did this year without the help of you, Libby, Karen, and Makenzie. Thank you so much for everything you do and I look forward to continuing to work with you in my post-presidential year!"
Lawrence Carey, PharmD
Past President, Pennsylvania Society of Health-System Pharmacists
"I don’t want to go further without mentioning the outstanding efforts of Karen and Libby. They have been incredibly instrumental in supporting the Partners and in building goodwill with them on behalf of the Chapter. Among the many important contributions they made was the development of an “on-boarding” process and checklist which was particularly helpful in a year in which we brought on so many new Partners. Consistently throughout the year, Partners expressed their appreciation for Karen and Libby’s efforts. And they covered for me on the numerous occasions when I didn’t do what I said I would do. Thanks guys!"

"HRLF is thriving thanks to a number of reasons. One of the most notable ones is you and your firm – providing sound oversight, management, ideas and superb service. I feel that one of my major accomplishments with HRLF was bringing you on as our management services organization."
Sr. Vice President and CHRO, Constant Contact
Past Board Member, Human Resource Leadership Forum (HRLF)
"Before I get to my board, let me start by thanking Karen Regan. Karen Regan - is an amazing partner to the president. She does so many things - and does them so well. She looks out ahead of us, keeps her eye on many key relationships, and generally keeps us on task. All while managing many details. She’s very collaborative - and will gladly step in to help do whatever needs to be done. Many of us see some of things that Karen does, but I think it is only when you’re the president that you see how she keeps her eye on the big picture - and shares great judgement and advice throughout the year. I couldn’t have done this without you. Heartfelt thanks to you!"

Chief Financial Officer, Harvard Business School
"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."
