Bower Management Services Selected as New Administrative Agency

By Jennifer Tornetta, APR
PRSA NJ President

The PRSA NJ Board is pleased to announce that it has selected Bower Management Services, LLC to assist the leadership team in handling administrative duties of the chapter. Bower began its work with us November 1.

“Identifying an administrative agency that could help us bring more meaningful programming and communicate more effectively with our members was one of our key goals for 2013,” said Kristine Simoes, APR, incoming president, PRSA NJ. “We used social media to publicize the RFP and old-fashioned member outreach. The Board and committee chairs and members reviewed proposals before our leadership team met with the top four agencies for proposal presentations at Monmouth University. During that presentation Tim and Andrea Bower demonstrated agency management expertise the Board thought would help us achieve our strategic planning goals – including offering members more value and increasing membership. We immediately felt the Bower Team was a good fit.”

Bower brings to PRSA NJ its experience in managing small to medium size non-profit organizations.  In addition to his more than 17 years of experience in non-profit management, Tim Bower, CAE, president also serves on non-profit boards. Andrea Bower, MBA, executive director, also has more than 17 years of experience in association management and executive education.

“From the RFP process, through the proposal presentation to transition planning meetings, Tim and Andrea have demonstrated a commitment to professionalism and an understanding of the issues we face in PR and as a non-profit organization,” said Jennifer Tornetta, APR, PRSA NJ president. “Even before they officially began working with us, Tim and Andrea exceeded our expectations in assisting us. We look forward to what we will accomplish for you through their assistance and that of their team in the next year.”
