ALISE to Contract with McKenna Management in October

Beginning October 1, 2018, ALISE will transition from SBI to McKenna Management Inc. for its management services. Following a thorough search for a new firm in May and June, McKenna Management was selected. This transition was necessary for both financial and operational reasons. Special thanks to ALISE member Tom Lipinski (Milwaukee) for reviewing our contract with McKenna Management in June of this year.

The ALISE Board, on behalf of all ALISE members, would like to thank outgoing Executive Director Andrew Estep, and all the other SBI staff who supported our work over the past five years. In particular, we thank Karen Thompson, Sara Dyel, Louise Miller, Alope Pardee, Shantaé Young, and Michelle Geller. We sincerely appreciate your efforts on behalf of ALISE!

Going forward, we believe that members will be very pleased with the level of services and the professionalism that McKenna Management brings. McKenna Management is an experienced Association Management Company that provides high‐quality association management services to a variety of professional societies and associations and is one of a small number of firms accredited by AMC Institute.

Pamela H. McKenna, CAE is President of McKenna Management. Her background includes 20 years of experience in all facets of association management. Pam holds a Master of Education Degree from Northeastern University. 

The new Executive Director for ALISE will be Cambria Happ, MPA, CAE. Cambria has a Master of Public Administration Degree with a Graduate Certificate in Nonprofit Management from The George Washington University. She also is a CAE (Certified Association Executive.) Cambria has close to 15 years of successful well‐rounded nonprofit experience, with seven years focused on associations, including governance, event planning, budgeting, membership, customer service, information technology and office management functions. Toward the end of this update, an interview with Cambria Happ is featured.
