“Calabrese Management conducts business in a very professional and cordial manner. Their knowledge and expertise on legislative issues in relationship to our industry has provided the opportunity to engage in situations we would not have otherwise participated in. Their guidance conducting Board Meetings has been essential to the success of our organization. Their willingness to work on any task at any moment for the good of the group goes beyond expectations. Having the Calabrese Management Team supporting the Pennsylvania Christmas Tree Growers Association brings a “peace of mind” to every single one of our members.”
– Robin A. Strathmeyer, Vice President/Corporate Secretary, The Strathmeyer Companies (Pennsylvania Christmas Tree Growers Association)
"Our association, the International Play Equipment Manufacturers Association, contracted with Calabrese Management in 2004. Since that time, the staff has assisted us in developing a strategic direction for the organization, an annual workplan, and a budget tied to that workplan. In addition, our Bylaws have been updated to reflect our current inner workings, a policy manual has been developed, and our nominating procedures are in place for upcoming leadership. The staff at Calabrese Management is professional and has enabled us to grow our organization. When members call IPEMA, they get personal and prompt attention. I am proud to have been part of the search committee that found this excellent resource for our professional trade association."
– Tom Norquist, GameTime (International Play Equipment Manufacturers Association)
“I’ve served on many boards and it has been a pleasant surprise to find such a high level of responsiveness, professionalism, and efficiency as the Calabrese team delivers. (Before Calabrese I had never received minutes from a meeting on the same day!) Denise and her staff not only take a personal interest in the long term success of the organization, such as assistance with strategic planning, but also work hard to understand and meet the day to day business needs (especially keeping our bottom line in the black). As a volunteer board member, Denise’s energy and enthusiasm are motivating factors to strengthen my commitment to the association just to keep up with her!”
