Society for Pediatric Dermatology (SPD)

A 1,200 member national association devoted to advancing the education and treatment of pediatric patients with skin, hair and nail disorders.

How it happened

HollandParlette took over management of the SPD in 2006 after their leadership concluded that the society could not continue to develop and mature while being managed by a single administrator out of her home. Since that time, HollandParlette has helped to increase the overall membership of SPD by 140%, increased attendance at the group’s two annual educational meetings by 40% and increased fundraising dollars secured by 30% by designing and implementing a coordinated annual Industry Partnership campaign.

HollandParlette recommended and oversaw a revamp of the SPD’s organizational structure in 2013, designed to provide more accountability for projects and initiatives and allow increased volunteer involvement by members. We also have worked with SPD leadership to design dynamic and achievable Strategic Plans that allow for continued growth.

During HollandParlette’s time as association managers, the SPD has added over $550,000 to their financial reserves and the group’s annual budget has almost doubled from $580,000 to $1.14 million.

HollandParlette served as congress organizer for the 13th World Congress of Pediatric Dermatology (hosted by the SPD), which drew 1,500 attendees in Chicago in Summer 2017. 

HollandParlette has been a transformative force for the Society for Pediatric Dermatology (SPD). Since beginning our partnership in 2006, SPD membership has more than doubled; annual and semi-annual conference attendance has been growing by leaps and bounds; our website has been polished; critical communications within our executive board and among members have been streamlined; and development efforts continue to grow under their supervision. HollandParlette has been a crucial catalyst throughout this entire organizational, financial, and administrative evolution. Most importantly, they not only get the job done, but they are a pleasure to work with. I can’t imagine our society working without them.
