What our partners are saying

Testimonial Quote The NIBA Search Task Force brought several excellent association management companies to the table for consideration and made the final decision difficult. In the end, we unanimously selected AMPED because of the progressive style, fresh ideas and well-rounded and talented staff. Our selection was fully supported by the Board, and together, we are very excited to partner with Lynda and team to take NIBA to new heights and build on the great foundation that has been established in the past. I’m honored to have been part of the search, and very excited to now see some very positive changes that will greatly benefit our entire membership.

Testimonial Quote The process of interviewing and searching for strong, talented and dynamic management for NIBA was no easy task. Among the many companies we interviewed, AMPED was the clear standout. With strong leadership and enthusiasm from the top down, we knew immediately that Lynda Patterson and her staff were exactly what NIBA needed to lead us into the future. With AMPED, we will have the strength in technology, creativity, and focused management that will ensure NIBA’s value and relevance for years to come.

Testimonial Quote Brittany - Thanks again for all your great support and effort during the Providence planning period. Being able to count on you to implement many things freed the LPC up to focus on the program, publicity, sponsorship, silent auction, etc., which played into a more successful, profitable and well attended meeting.

Testimonial Quote The AMC Institute accreditation is testimony to the incredible job Lynda and her team have done for the Control System Integrators Association (CSIA). The CSIA has seen significant membership growth, highly rated conferences, solid financial performance, and an increasing list of membership benefits over the last few years. This would not be possible without AMPED's leadership and professional approach to managing our association.

Testimonial Quote Under Lynda Patterson’s leadership, AMPED has taken the Wisconsin Society of Association Executives to new levels of member satisfaction since we became their client in 2009. Their innovative ideas, their commitment to make every one of our products and services the best it can be, and their solid business practices are reflective of a company having excellent management practices.

Testimonial Quote AMPED offices and staff are just as impressive as their proposal and interview. They are organized, professional, articulate and friendly. They know their business and have extensive experience in working with associations of all different types. As many of us have said – ‘They get it.’ We made a good choice and they are very pleased to have been chosen. Bottom line - AMPED is an excellent organization with sound management and good people. They will do a great job for the NAFA.

Testimonial Quote Working with the AMPED staff for nearly four years has been a true pleasure. They are quite innovative in their approach to communication. For example, they were among the first Higher Logic clients to use the social media platform as a hybrid, public-member website. Their creative staff is always game to use technology to serve their members and attract new members.

Testimonial QuoteI have worked with many association management companies in the past, but AMPED is by far the best. The staff is professional, friendly and easy to work with. Their advice has always been right on target. I highly recommend AMPED as your business partner.

Testimonial Quote Lynda very much shares the vision our Board has for this organization. Indeed, she has led the charge in many ways we could not, acting with energy and passion in everything she does. We tackled several new initiatives this year that would not have been possible without Lynda’s forward-thinking and experimental vision for how associations can and should work.

Testimonial Quote The hybrid model of association management is effective because it combines the industry expertise of the executive director with association management expertise of AMPED. When I began my role as executive director of CSIA, I had little knowledge of how trade associations function. But I did know control system integration, having managed my own company for 18 years. I understand our members’ challenges and can empathize with them.

As for association operations, leadership, budgets, strategic planning, event planning, association database management, graphic design, web management, dues processing, building staff culture, and so forth, I have no training or experience, nor the interest or time. I rely on Lynda, as president of CSIA, to apply the expertise that will accelerate our growth. And she does so very well. Ours is the perfect partnership!

Working together, we have become increasingly effective at delivering value to our members. The growth of CSIA and our reputation as an effective, professional association in the world of automation are evidence that the hybrid model of CSIA leadership and management is a model that works.

After working closely with AMPED for five years I literally have only positive feedback. What are some of AMPED’s attributes?

• Professionalism, Quality – Everything they do and produce makes you proud to be affiliated with them.
• Forward thinking, progressive – Always searching for new methodologies and technologies.
• Accountability – Financial transparency with CSIA budget, monthly P&L, etc. There are no “up charges” or hidden fees.
• Honesty – There are no politics or hidden agendas.
• Collaboration – Superior working relationship, trust, open communication, team-oriented.
• Commitment – They go the extra mile and have a sense of urgency when something really needs to be done. They have never said "No" when I had an urgent request.
• Fun – In simple terms, they are a delight to work with.
