Don’t Settle For Less
Optimize Your Association Goals and Objectives
The Mitman Group LLC provides administrative & public policy leadership to small- & mid-sized professional associations in Pennsylvania.
We have learned what we believe to be the most important rule of association management: member-driven organizations thrive & succeed while staff-led organizations struggle & decline. At their heart, the most dynamic associations are fueled by the passion of their members. And, it is the role of the administrator to help bring to life that passion within the organization.
We strive to free volunteer leaders from the minutia of day-to-day operations & planning so they can focus on the greater vision and direction of the organization.

What We Can Do For You
The Mitman Group LLC has assisted various Pennsylvania trade associations through their start-up process, growth phase, and general business operations.
Our specialty is assisting small to mid-sized volunteer organizations that require day-to-day services but are not in a position to secure a permanent office space or employ a full-time staff. As your “Executive Director for-hire”, we enable your association to meet all its operational needs at an affordable price.
Groups we have worked with have consistently achieved growth in their financial solvency. Some organizations we’ve worked with were able to reverse a shrinking reserve year-over-year to experiencing a six-figure growth of their asset base within five years. This was accomplished by cutting unnecessary costs and developing new dues and non-dues sources of revenue.
We’ve helped expand existing and develop new training programs to enhance educational opportunities within various industries.
Full range of business services to help your board run the organization
Develop training & educational classes for professional CE
Manage membership roster and develop strategies to expand your member rolls
Provide insights on solving the public policy challenges facing your industry
