What Our Clients Say
They are THE BEST FIRM to inform our community about your event, and they are a true delight to work with.
Spire Management, LLC provided an extraordinary level of service during my time as a member of the Board of Directors and as Chair of PLSO (Professional Land Surveyors of Oregon). When they was first contracted by the organization in 2007, we were facing many challenges. Among our greatest challenges were marketing the organization and the profession, developing a viable strategic plan, and improving day-to-day management of the organization. They helped us accomplish our goals in all of these areas. I always appreciated their efforts for the organization, but it was not until I became Chair in 2012 that the full scope of their talent and drive was made apparent. During my year as Chair, the PLSO was facing budget issues like many non-profits at the time. They provided sound guidance for developing strategies that allowed the organization to return to sold financial footing and move forward with our agenda of supporting the profession of land surveying… In today’s world, it is difficult to find individuals and organizations that will go beyond the simple fulfillment of contract and provided a level of service that exceeds expectations. Spire Management, LLC has exceeded my expectations.
When LSAW lost its Executive Director without warning, our volunteer leadership didn’t have the information, time or specialty to help figure out the organization’s finances nor maintain services for members. Spire Management was able to help us get back on our feet through good bookkeeping management, cleaning up our membership records, and supporting the incoming board members. Thank you Spire Management for all that you did for us!
Mary-Louise is a detailed planner. Her experience and expertise in PR and Association meeting and event planning is second to none. If you are working with Mary-Louise, she is dedicated to you and you are sure to have an event that is facilitated professionally. She is down to earth, and wonderful to work with!!
Mary Louise was creative, detailed, and aggressive when providing public relations and event planning for our Society. Because of her work, our events exceeded all expectations!
The Rich Duncan Construction team would like to extend our appreciation to Spire Management, LLC for all of their hard work at the Extreme Makeover: Home Edition Kickoff Party. Their team went above and beyond to make the party an incredibly successful community event. The attendance was astounding with over 800 attendees. The program ran very smoothly inspiring the volunteers and giving insight into the needs of the project. Spire Management was so prepared and organized for this event that the network production team for Extreme Makeover: Home Edition applauded their work and will suggest the format for future projects. We are so pleased to have Spire Management, LLC working with us on this extraordinary project, we can’t imagine working with anyone else. I highly recommend using Spire Management, LLC for your next event, big or small.
they will get the infrastructure in your organization in place and strengthen it from the inside out.
I worked with Mary Louise to create a seminar on transportation policy for state legislators in Oregon. Our tasks were to raise funds to support the program, including gaining support from key legislators, from potential participants, and from interest groups with significant stakes in the policy; to assure compliance with Oregon’s strict ethics code; to establish to criteria for the content of the program and to recruit a program manager; and, ultimately to oversee delivery of the program. Mary Louise knew who to communicate with, when to communicate with them, and how to frame and deliver the communication. Her advice and political sensitivities were invaluable. Mary Louise is trusted by the people with whom she deals; she operates with great integrity. She frames problems well and develops effective solutions. She is consummate public relations professional.
Mary and her colleagues at Spire Management have managed two associations for which I have served as the voluntary President (Oregon Small Business Coalition and Oregon Highway Users Alliance). In both cases she provided (and continues to provide) outstanding services which both exceed our expectations and predict our needs in advance of our requests. Combine this with budget-friendly costs and it would be hard to find a better association management firm.
I have enjoyed and appreciated the value Mary Louise and her staff has provided for the Independent Electrical Contractors of Oregon. This is a group with occasionally difficult demands, but she always comes through for us.
When we found ourselves needing to hire an Executive Director, we quickly realized how much time it would take to finalize a job description, recruit and screen qualified candidates. Spire Management and Executive Search Services was able to reach out all over the country for qualified candidates, review and evaluate dozens of resumes, pre-screen candidates and give us highly qualified people to interview. It saved us time and the investment was worth it.
