When many companies find themselves having to focus on staff turnover and filling vacant positions, Talley Management Group finds itself welcoming some of its former staff back.
Talley Management Group, Inc. (TMG) proudly announces that it has been reaccredited by the Association Management Company Institute (AMC Institute). Achievement of AMC Institute Accreditation demonstrates an association management company’s (AMC) commitment and ability to deliver consistent quality service to present and prospective clients. AMCs who wish to remain Accredited must reapply for and complete the process every four years.
Today marks exactly one month until the December Certified Account Executive (CAE) designation exam.
With the Certified Account Executive (CAE) Exam in just a few months (December 7 to be exact), Talley Management Group asked some of its CAEs to reflect on their decision to earn their CAE designation and how they prepared for the exam. TMG's Director of Association Management Services, Chuck Sapp, CPA, CAE, offered his insight into why he chose to earn it and how those taking it in December can prepare.
As I have moved through the association management industry, I have had the opportunity to work in various roles and with a wide range of industries. When I first began my career, I was working on one association only, serving as a community liaison for a very active online membership. As I progressed through my career, I had more opportunities to engage with other associations. The opportunity to engage with other associations was what solidified my desire to make this a career. It also showed me the quickest path to gaining the skills and knowledge to advance within the association management industry.
When I started my position as the American Registry for Migraine Research Administrator for Talley Management, Inc.’s (TMG) client partner American Headache Society (AHS), I started reviewing AHS’s site evaluation, a beginning point for my work as the new administrator for our registry. This informal evaluation helped me understand what was happening at each of the sites on the ground while also allowing me to immediately work with each site’s team to troubleshoot or provide feedback. The biggest change from the typical introduction and evaluation with my process? I connected directly with the site’s team rather than just sending an email that, unfortunately, would most likely be deleted.

Boats aren’t the only thing that are being “a boarded” this season. Summer doesn’t stop associations from thinking forward to the next fiscal year. Many are preparing for their new board members to take their positions and begin their planning for the future of their organization. As this process starts, many ask what do new board members need to know? How can they be effectively and efficiently onboarded? Several of the TMG leadership team weighed in and provided what has worked best for their organizations.
Whether you have been in the association management industry for a long period of time or are new to the field, you most likely have been to an event. Concerts, parades, parties-they are all events and all require planning, especially since they attract different audiences. Aside from having audiences, they also all have a focal point, a person or thing that the event features. For conferences and meetings, the focal point is often the keynote speaker or speakers. Select the right speakers and you can have amazingly positive feedback; select the wrong keynote speaker and you can receive the complete opposite. TMG has steps you can take to help find the right speakers for your next event, large or small.
