Association Management Division
You’re about to choose a new partner to help guide your association.
The Western Equipment Dealers Association (WEDA) is much more than an association management company: We are an association, giving us special insight into the needs of organizations such as yours. From our offices in Kansas City, Missouri, Western helps a diverse group of associations achieve the goals of continuity, stability, efficiency and profitability desired by most groups.
Benefits of Choosing Western Equipment Dealers Association
Jane Male, Director of Association Management, Olivia Holcombe, Corporation Secretary, and Robert Uhler, Executive Vice President for the Mid-America Lumbermen’s Association have earned the Certified Association Executive (CAE) designation. All five members of our accounting department are Certified Public Accountants (CPA) and two are Certified Valuation Analysts (CVA).
We have created economies of scale through sharing staff and resources with our association management clients.
Your volunteer leadership will benefit from having a full-time staff available to assist them with their assigned responsibilities.
Our clients benefit from WEDA’s commitment to staff education and development. Jane Male, Olivia Holcombe, Curt Kleoppel and Robert Uhler are graduates of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Institute of Organization Management – a four-year, intensive course of study designed exclusively for chamber and association management staff. Two others are enrolled in the program currently.
We offer reliable, consistent service and we get the job done right.
We get to know the suppliers we do business with so that you can take advantage of our buying power as well as gain access to quality providers.
We take our role in protecting the environment seriously and monitor our carbon footprint to do our part to reduce the impact we have as a company.
We provide a wide range of services to WEDA members and the associations we serve, which gives us a broad base of experience in the areas where other associations might be involved – from meetings to publications, member education to sponsorships.
