What Our Clients Are Saying...
In 2001, The Kentucky Bluegrass Meeting Professionals International started looking for a new Executive Director to run the financial & administrative portions of our organization. Our board wanted to focus on strategic planning and find a partner that would handle the operational aspects of the chapter's responsibilities and guide us to success. After interviewing many qualified companies, we chose Greg Jewell of AEC Management to work with us. As President of the association during this endeavor, I am happy to report that it was the BEST move we ever made. Not only did our board become strategic and build and implement a plan for future leadership, better communication, increased membership and higher visibility, KBCMPI won Chapter of the Year 2001-2002 within our 20,000 member international organization! AEC continues to be a vital part of our continued success within our marketplace by staying on top of trends, fiscal opportunities available to us and keeping us on point.

AEC is established with almost 25 years of top-level experience in national and international association management. We have worked with a diverse group of boards and committees and understand the inherent challenges they face. Understanding the importance of professional management to an organization that undergoes yearly changes in volunteer board leadership is part of our strength.
Successful association leadership is constantly searching for new ways to move an organization forward while continuing to provide value to the organization’s members. AEC provides a hi-touch, hi-tech approach to association management. By providing personalized customer service to members, while utilizing the technology members have come to expect from a professional organization, we are able to strategically create and maintain momentum.
Management services available to our clients include:
Membership Growth and Development Membership growth and development is vital to the success of any organization; it is the lifeblood. We can provide proven methods for accomplishing the association’s membership goals, including developing a membership campaign to recruit new members, planning a program for membership retention or developing significant new member benefits/services.
Financial Management Financial accountability is one of the most important tenets on which boards judge management companies. We provide complete financial management, including monthly balance sheet/financial statements delivered to the board of directors. A monthly, crystal-clear financial picture allows the board to make well-informed decisions on strategic issues.
Conference and Event Management Annual conferences, traditionally a significant source of non-dues revenue for associations, are an AEC specialty. We provide first-rate event and conference management, from site selection and program development to registration and onsite execution. We produce successful conferences that enhance the image and professionalism of your organization.
Public Relations Crafting an image in the media means more than sending out press releases. We can develop and implement a public relations plan that will enhance an organization’s favorable position and allow it to achieve future growth.
Publications Whether it is magazines, print and/or electronic newsletters or annual reports, we can produce high-quality products that not only inform members but also enhance the image and professionalism of the association.
