MT. LAUREL, NJ — The National Automotive Radiator Service Association (NARSA) has formed a strategic partnership with Association Headquarters (AH), a Mt. Laurel, NJ, based association management company, which will provide strategic management services to NARSA as well as day-to-day operations of the organization. AH has more than 25 years of experience managing associations.
NARSA officials said the new partnership will result in increased communication, a wider array of improved member services and a stronger association overall. AH will introduce NARSA to a greater level of association resources and help the organization focus on industry issues as well as improved service to its members.
In conjunction with the new agreement, Mike Dwyer, CAE, will continue to serve as NARSA’s executive director. The current staff of NARSA will have the opportunity to seek further employment with AH, NARSA said.
The transition to AH will begin on June 1, with an expected start date of August 1. The newly assembled core team at AH will consist of a variety of trade association professionals, including Dwyer as executive director, an assistant executive director, CFO, meeting manager, marketing manager and public relations representative. NARSA noted that it gives no guarantees there will not be a disruption in services at that time.
NARSA said it will reach out to its membership in the next six months for feedback. Results will be rolled into a strategic plan for the future of the organization.
