AMPED Selected to Manage Women in Government Relations
AMPED Association Management has been selected by Women in Government Relations (WGR) to manage their operations.
WGR is the premier, non-partisan professional society for those who have responsibilities and interests in the field of government relations and/or public affairs. With more than 1,200 members at every career level of government relations, WGR’s membership represents a wide array of private, non-profit and public sector organizations.
“As a woman-owned business, we are delighted to welcome such a vibrant organization with a mission and membership so close to my heart,” said Lynda J. Patterson, FASAE, CAE President and Owner of AMPED. “We are excited to welcome WGR’s current staff onto our team as we strive to constantly improve services for WGR’s members.”
WGR’s three dedicated full-time staff members, including Executive Director Emily Bardach, CAE, will join the AMPED team in the Washington, DC office.
Bardach, pictured at left, has 25 years of experience in association management and has built a successful career managing and transitioning multiple professional and trade organizations all under the AMC model.
“WGR's vision is to create generations of powerful female advocates and we are confident that a partnership with AMPED will provide us with the strategy, structure and resources we need to be successful,” Bardach said. “Relationship and community building is at the core of what we do. Our staff can't wait to join the dynamic team of association professionals at AMPED!”
AMPED will assume full-service association management on December 1, 2019.
