The Association Specialists expands to Melbourne

The Association Specialists (TAS) has announced its expansion to Melbourne after securing its second business from the Victorian capital.

Earlier this year, TAS acquired the client base of Professional Association Management Specialists (PAMS), and CLEMS Association and Event Management is also now under the TAS brand.

These two Melbourne businesses will be brought together under one roof at the current CLEMS office.

Previous CLEMS owner Sue Gillard will manage the operation, looking after a diverse client portfolio of associations and accompanying events.

“The immediate scale we have now, coupled with The Association Specialists’ support from Sydney, means we can offer the highest level of association management and event management services in Melbourne,” Gillard said.

TAS managing director Francis Child said he was delighted for the company to have developed a strong presence in Melbourne.

“We look forward to building a highly successful business under Sue, using the reputations of CLEMS and PAMS coupled with the expertise of The Associations Specialists,” he said.

Kicking off the new union, TAS will host its Strategic Board Series on 21 May in Melbourne – an event for industry professionals to share and learn from thought leaders in the association and not-for-profit sectors.
