Our team is thrilled to work with an organization that is dedicated to producing events that are memorable and provide important content.”

The American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) recently appointed MCI USA to manage registration and housing for their three annual events starting with NEXT 2019 along with the National Student Conclave and Combined Sections Meeting. 

APTA represent more than 100,000 member physical therapists (PTs), physical therapist assistants (PTAs), and students of physical therapy.

The American Society for Nutrition (ASN) also recently signed a multi-year extension for housing and registration services with MCI USA.

With the goal of bringing more value to the membership experience, the Canadian Society of Association Executives (CSAE) has selected Naylor Association Solutions to refresh and produce six of its multimedia communications offerings, including Association magazine and magazine website, Association Agenda eNewsletter, an Online Supplier Directory and its annual Source Guide.

In addition, Naylor will manage advertising sales for CSAE communications, including ad placements on CSAE.com through its new programmatic advertising platform.

“I’m excited about CSAE’s new partnership with Naylor,” said Tracy Folkes Hanson, president and CEO of CSAE.

She added, “As CSAE renews its commitment to producing valuable communications for our members - and for the association and not-for-profit sector as a whole in Canada, we appreciate that Naylor offers multiple services within one company and knows our market very well.”

“Naylor was founded in Canada, signed our first association in Canada and continues to work with 64 Canadian associations today,” said Alex DeBarr, president and CEO of Naylor Association Solutions.

DeBarr added, “We’re excited to again be working with CSAE, which Canadian association executives know as the driving force for associations in Canada. We obviously believe in the role associations play for their members and industries and look forward to using Naylor’s unique offerings to help CSAE and other Canadian associations engage their members and find effective ways to drive non-dues revenue.”
