“Overwhelmingly I am satisfied with the high quality service provided by IMI. Our executive director has her pulse on the current trends and provides her expertise to the BOD. She has advanced knowledge of association management and provides guidance. She shares tools for tracking deliverables and modifies based on unique needs. Our director of conferences is exemplary in conference leadership. She takes time to speak with BOD, attendees, and staff and is a welcomed presence at the front door of the conference.”

"I have had the pleasure of working with the IMI team in various roles during my time with NACRC. As the current NACRC president I am pleased to offer my endorsement for their organization and professionalism. It makes my job much easier and allows me to have added focus on our member's needs."

"IMI Association Executive, Inc. is one of today's fastest-growing Association Management Companies (AMC) in North Carolina and the United States. As a Past-President of the North Carolina Electronic Security Association (NCESA), I would highly recommend them! In our fast-paced and tech-driven world, IMI exhibits that "unique" approach to what it means to manage a company’s resources and needs. This rare mix of productivity and ambition sets this organization "heads and shoulders" above the competition and few companies are in the same caliber."

— Ronald E. Jackson, CET, CHS, CGP, NC
Electronic Security Association (NCESA)
President 2012

"In 2011 I served as President of the NCESA. One of my first unexpected duties was to find a new Executive Director for our association. IMI Associate Executives was one of our candidates. After the interview process and meeting their staff with such a broad range of experience the selection was made. The transition went great. With all the conventions, business meetings, and board meetings, I can’t think of one time that IMI let me down."

— Dean Harris
NC Electronic Security Association (NCESA)
President 2011

"The staff at IMI has really kept up great with all we've tossed at them throughout this very aggressive year. Through website changes, newsletter preparation, and major functionality modifications regarding membership structure and rates, conference preparation and through our push to get our ByLaws amended and properly voted upon, they have been absolutely integral to keeping the Board of Directors on point and the membership up to speed. We very much appreciate Sarah's keen insight and thoughts as our executive director. She’s an excellent liaison in any negotiation, as well as a superb scheduler and spot on with her engagement with members, but she is also SO much more than the sum of her tasks. She’s a key participant in our Board meetings, with excellent input and a perfect sense of when to pipe in and when to defer to the elected Board of Directors. Having IMI throughout the years has provided a continuity and connection with past boards and agendas in a manner that would be exceedingly difficult to otherwise accomplish in an association with a consistently rotating Board of Directors. Maybe it's partially that I was President this year and therefore had involvement in more tasks, but it seems to me that these last few months have brought a flurry more so than most years. And the IMI crew has not missed a beat!"

"Lee Campbell (TCNC's executive director) and everyone at IMI Association Executives have done an outstanding job in managing all of our affairs seamlessly this year. I want to make sure that TCNC members know that Lee and her staff have shown that they are more than capable of helping us move forward and grow for years to come....Our relationship with IMI has allowed us to provide all the services you expect for a fraction of the cost we used to pay."

— Jonathan Richardson, NCCTP,Turfgrass Council of NC (TCNC)
