The Sanford Organization (TSO) is a fully accredited association management
company dedicated to providing a full range of management services efficiently
and effectively to meet our clients’ goals and objectives. TSO offers high-quality
and reliable association management services to a diverse and growing base of
association clients at a reasonable cost.
Located in Chicago's northwest suburbs, the 6,800-square-foot office is fully
equipped to maximize efficiency and productivity. Established in 1975, The
Sanford Organization is a fully-accredited, full-service association management
company with 15+ employees who successfully and effectively manage all aspects
of trade associations, professional societies, and trade shows. Choosing TSO
over full-time staff or volunteers ensures value, professionalism, and committed leadership.
It is more cost effective to engage a management company to run your association rather than hiring a full-time staff, since you only pay for the staff time we spend on your association. TSO staff expertise can be shared by several clients, so your costs are lower, and your funds go farther.
TSO has extensive experience in event planning, promotions, membership services and development, and more, so there is greater efficiency, leadership, and professionalism than most volunteers can provide.
Located in Wauconda, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago, TSO has an ideal location--close enough to Chicago to take advantage of all its resources, but far enough from it to gain the economic advantage of low overhead.
