ASSOCIATION MANAGEMENT

ECG: A Trusted Resource

ECG has earned its reputation as a trusted resource for associations looking to streamline business management and outsource their infrastructure.

Serious organizations and associations know that operating on a shoestring budget with volunteer support is not a sustainable business model. Whether you are launching a new trade association or running an established professional organization, ECG adds value by handling your operations with greater efficiency and effectiveness so you can focus on what matters most.

We take the time to understand your mission, your goals and your priorities in order to provide the seamless support you need to serve your clients – from administration, accounting and strategic planning to project management, meeting planning and membership marketing.
