“Association Vision is one of the few companies that still makes every effort to meet with their clientele face-to-face to establish working relationships and trust. Right after we hiered with the company to publish our magazine the publisher and advertising director came to our annual meeting to make contacts and start booking advertising. They also quickly put together our media kit and even redesigned the magazine. This strong start helped ensure a smooth transition from our old publisher.”

“In 2007, Association Vision came to us at a time when we needed to revamp our member communications. Our existing magazine was financially unsustainable but still a very important communication tool. Al Rickard and his firm gave us some ideas and options, and together we developed a focused newsletter that has earned raves from NAA members and is well-respected throughout the industry. They stuck with us and did an excellent job.”

“Wow. After one brief interview with me, Al absolutely nailed the gist of the article he wrote for Smart Meetings. He distilled the information in a way that made it interesting, concise, and informative. This was the second time he interviewed me, and both times with greatly written articles as a result.”
