Reflecting on 2023, Anticipating 2024, and the Heartbeat of Association Management

As we take a moment to reflect on the past year and set our sights on the aspirations of 2024, one thing is abundantly clear: the challenges we embraced became catalysts for accelerated learning. Each conquered day contributed to a wealth of lessons and skills, propelling our growth as an association management company. Among the many highlights from the past year, five stand out prominently:


Expanding the HOST Family: Welcoming four exceptional individuals into our HOST family has been a highlight. These new team members have seamlessly integrated and greatly enriched our collective expertise. Their skills and dedication contribute to our continuous pursuit of excellence, helping us raise the bar in association management.


Strategic Expansion of HOST Management: In tandem with our new team members, we've expanded HOST Management by introducing new services and establishing additional departments within the organization. This expansion has unlocked elevated solutions, harnessed new expertise, and fostered stronger strategic thinking.


A New Chapter: HOST Management's New Office: Amidst the busyness of this year, we embarked on the task of relocating after thirteen years in our original office space. This move wasn't just about changing physical spaces; it was a journey down memory lane, packing up 13 years of hard work. Yet, it was also a rewarding experience, allowing us to trace the company's growth and the evolution of the HOST Standard from 2010 to 2023. Now comfortably settled in our new, purpose-designed space, it's a testament to our progress and commitment to excellence.


Business Growth Summits in NB: Designing and hosting five Business Growth Summits in New Brunswick served as creative and distinctive learning experiences for entrepreneurs. This initiative provided hundreds of business leaders with a platform to connect, learn, and collaboratively work on advancing their businesses. As a local business ourselves, it was a privilege for HOST Management to engage meaningfully with the community and contribute to its growth.


CCGM Excellence in Business Award: A crowning achievement for our team was clinching the CCGM Excellence in Business Award. Amidst the challenges and heavy workloads of the fall, this prestigious accolade served as a welcome distraction. It was not just a recognition of our work's importance but a moment for our team to take pride in the meaningful contributions we make. Winning this award reinforced our commitment to excellence and innovation in association management.


These standout moments from the past year serve as pillars of inspiration, reminding us to continue seeking opportunities for growth. Each achievement is a testament to the dedication and expertise of the entire HOST Management team.


Innovation: The Heartbeat of Association Management


As an Association Management Company (AMC), we take pride in being more than just administrators. While your team may be experts in the industry you serve, the actual operations and administration of your association are in good hands with your AMC. We see ourselves not only as administrators but as strategic partners, consistently looking for ways to innovate and improve the efficiency and impact of your association.


Throughout the upcoming year, I will be sharing our thoughts on innovation through a series of blog posts. From embracing technological advancements to introducing novel engagement strategies, we aim to challenge the conventional and spark conversations that lead to positive change.


In conclusion, 2023 has been a year of growth, introspection, and resilience for HOST Management. As we step into 2024, our commitment to our values, goals, and innovation remains unwavering. We look forward to the dynamic partnership with our association clients and contributing to the impact of the multiple industries these organizations serve. Here's to another year of conquering challenges, embracing growth, and setting new benchmarks in the dynamic field of association management.
