Gidley Management Group is a family owned and run business

A smart and cost-effective alternative to maintaining a staffed headquarters or relying completely on volunteer efforts, Gidley Management Group, Inc. (GMG), an association management company, serves as the business office and staff for multiple non-profit organizations. GMG works with your Board of Directors to concentrate on the big picture — setting policy and strategic planning — while the day-to-day operations are cared for by our experienced association professionals. 
The client/vendor relationship between the association and GMG alleviates the board of responsibilities inherent in being an employer and running an office. Because GMG houses several associations, fixed expenses, such as rent and computer equipment, are shared by the various organizations, lowering the cost for all. Additionally, each client association benefits from the experience and knowledge of management and support professionals who work with different groups and are on top of the trends in the association industry.

Serving the association community since 1992, Gidley Management Group, Inc. is a family business that is women-owned and run. GMG principals (and sisters), Debbie, Susan and Sheila are actively involved in the business, serving clients and continually working to ensure the entire GMG team provides the best possible service.

GMG serves as the association headquarters for international, national and local associations, and as the local chapter/affiliate office for national and international organizations. Additionally, we manage charitable foundations and political action committees affiliated with these associations. GMG has successfully taken on the responsibilities of managing associations and transitions in almost every conceivable circumstance including working with founding members to establish a new association, organizations previously managed by another association management company, organizations making the transition from its own staff and office space to a management company and organizations that previously ran completely on volunteer efforts.
