"Fern Management totally revolutionized the way we run our association. Our officers now enjoy leadership and can focus on strategy without being overwhelmed by administration. They have revitalized our events and programs. We are a more effective & professional association thanks to Sue and her team."

Sara Barkley Raaymakers, President,

West Pasco Bar Association

What I learned during this process of being president is that it is like a car... the leadership is the body that the outside world sees, but the management company is the engine that drives the vehicle. You guys were awesome and I was fortunate to have you at my back during the last year. We have initiated many new programs and it is exciting to see FGCAR grow..
