VIRGINIA ASSOCIATION OF SURVEYORS

CHALLENGE

Upon assuming management responsibilities for the Virginia Association of Surveyors (VAS) in 2015, Miller Wenhold Association Management (MWAM) was tasked with implementing a number of modernization initiatives.  VAS had been overseen by a secretary for nearly 30 years.  The transition to a professional association management company meant a new logo, website, convention upgrade, and numerous other improvements in VAS's image and operations.

SOLUTION

Under MWAM's leadership, we helped create the design of a new logo, created a new website and web-based association management system (AMS), established on-line e-commerce for dues payments and event registrations, launched the inauguration of a digital newsletter, set up the implementation of online profiles of members' continuing education credits, retained a lobbyist in the state capitol, and introduced a sponsor program for the association's annual convention. 

RESULTS

Economic Growth

  • 10% increase in overall continuing education seminar attendance.

  • 75% increase in convention sponsorship income (2018-2019)

  • 60% increase in exhibitor income (2018-2019)

OUR TESTIMONIALS DO THE TALKING

Reputation Speaks for Itself

"The Virginia Association of Surveyors has become an association more responsive to its members and more effective on behalf of its members as a result of the management support provided by Miller Wenhold Association Management.  VAS has benefited from the firm's vision, attention to detail, ethics, and application of association management principles and best practices. We're a more modern, innovative, and effective association as a result of our partnership with MWAM. Another bonus is that I enjoy the company of their friendly staff and that they have become to feel like family"
