Ep. 30 – Learn How a Tallahassee Company is Shaping the Future of State and National Associations by Driving Member Engagement – Bennett Napier, President & CEO of Partners In Association Management

After getting his Master’s Degree at FSU, Bennett Napier jumped into the Tallahassee community by accepting a job offer with Bob Harris of Harris Management Group. Soon after, he got the opportunity to open his own firm and Partners in Association Management was born. What started as a one-man operation out of Napier’s home “with a basset hound on his feet” has become a large scale Association Management firm that now has more than 20 clients, many of which on a national level.

Partners In Association Management handles a wide range of local, regional and national clients, covering a variety of sectors. Some mentioned include the Florida Cemetery, Cremation & Funeral Association, various healthcare organizations, fire protection, water-well drillers, etc.

Including various state associations and trade organizations, Napier notes that Tallahassee has the third highest concentration of associations in the country behind Washington DC and Chicago.

Bennett has donated his time and expertise to the Chamber in a volunteer capacity, serving as a Board Member and Chair of the Membership Committee. Entering his second term at the helm of the committee, he is leading the group in discussions on recruitment and retention, but his true focus is increasing engagement among Chamber members of all levels. “Our goal is to provide a mechanism and a vehicle for chamber members to be engaged at whatever level they want to be engaged. They win, we win.”
