The Resource Center for Associations (RC) was formed in 1984. RC's two founding principals, Francine Butler and Jerry Bowman (both retired) sold the company in 2005 to current owners and principals, David Stumph and Kristi Klinke. Klinke and Stumph have devoted their professional careers to association management and to ensuring that RC provides the highest possible client service. We have deliberately chosen to stay small to ensure that RC maintains a strong sense of personal service to its clients. By engaging the talents of all its staff specialists, RC’s principals are able to maintain meaningful "hands-on" involvement with the associations we serve. Our staff is our company’s life blood. They provide their special talents in association management, meeting planning, member services, information technology, financial services, editorial services and certification management to meet the needs of our clients’ day-to-day operations. The principals provide the staff with the training and support they need to ensure that the business affairs of all clients are constantly moving forward toward and meeting our client’s strategic objectives.
