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.
