Association Management Companies Are Your Nonprofit's Path To Success
Giuffrida Associates Inc. announced Annette L. Summers is the new President and owner of the Company, effective September 30, 2013.
The Washington, D.C., firm is 33 years old and specializes in association management, conference and virtual meeting planning and management, and strategic planning. Summers has been with the Company for 16 years.
“My plans are to carry on our company vision of always exceeding client expectations, focusing on doing what we do best and delivering our services with passion and pride. Now that we are a woman-owned firm, we will look carefully and aggressively for opportunities to move our business forward, particularly with our GSA contract,” Summers said.
In addition to providing services to associations such as the Cheese Importers Association of America, Document Security Alliance, National Space Club, North American Security Products Organization, Women in Aerospace, and Women in International Trade, the company provides its services to an array of Federal agencies and Academic Institutes including the Department of Labor, The Stevens Institute of Technology, the US Air Force and others, as well as private corporations.
“When I first started this business in 1981, I envisioned selling it to someone I trusted and who had the leadership skills and demonstrated ability to carry the name and brand forward. Annette seamlessly fit this vision and I couldn’t be happier about the success of Giuffrida Associates and the future it holds,” stated former President and owner Mike Giuffrida.
Other key executives with the firm are Sheila Crowley, CMP, and Melissa Fowler; both individuals have played integral roles in shaping the company culture and business.
