AMPED is growing! Announces addition of DC office

AMPED Association Management is pleased to announce the official opening of its metro Washington, DC office in Old Town Alexandria, Virginia.

The DC office is an extension of AMPED’s headquarters in Madison, Wisconsin and will serve to benefit AMPED association clients with staff support, meetings, and advocacy interests in and around the DC area. Much of the planning for a 2020 DC city-wide convention will also take place from the new office.

Like AMPED’s downtown Madison, Wisconsin office, the remodeled DC office is located in a charming, historic building close to water and surrounded by unique and vibrant businesses, bars and restaurants – the perfect environment for walking meetings, client meetings and thinking “outside the office.”

“Our strength is in our culture and we have been very deliberate in extending that culture to our DC office, fully integrating our staff in both locations into all of our systems and providing the same amenities such as standing desks” said Lynda J. Patterson, FASAE, CAE owner and president. “Everyone is totally plugged in. All of our systems are already cloud-based and work very well with several of our staff members who work remotely across the country.”

Patterson and her team see great value in growing a presence in the Nation’s Capital and the opportunities that that presents within the association profession. “Through the process of establishing the DC office, it has been fun to immerse ourselves even more in the association community there,” she says.

“Washington DC is the home of thousands of national and global trade and professional associations, so it’s only natural that we expand there. We’re excited to be able to tap into all our DC connections, identifying staff who fit our culture and who can serve our current and future client needs. Our growth in the region will be talent-driven, not client-specific.”

Kim Thompson, the AMPED DC office managing director, has over 20 years’ experience in event planning and corporate employee engagement. She was instrumental in identifying office options in the metro DC area and has worked enthusiastically to develop the space to fit the AMPED culture. She will continue to manage operations, network locally, and assist with new staff recruitment.
