Three Associations Select Smithbucklin to Enable Growth

March 29, 2022

CHICAGO – Smithbucklin is pleased to welcome three new organizations to its association management portfolio: National Association of College Admission Counseling (NACAC), Railway Supply Institute (RSI), and Society of Vascular & Interventional Neurology (SVIN).

Associations emerging from the pandemic are seeking new and innovative ways to serve stakeholders, make a difference, and strategically plan for the future. Each of these organizations selected Smithbucklin for the breadth and depth of experience in delivering quality service, strengthening the volunteer experience, and providing leadership and strategy necessary for growth and success.

The National Association of College Admission Counseling (NACAC) represents a broad collection of enrollment management, admission, and counseling professionals from around the world who together support students making choices about pursuing postsecondary education. NACAC advocates at the federal and state level for the interests of students and professionals in the college transition, and focuses on reimagining college admission and financial aid through a racial equity lens.

NACAC will leverage expertise of both Smithbucklin and 360 Live Media, a Smithbucklin-owned event strategy, marketing, and design agency, to expand its capacity and augment its team to drive value and best serve its members.

SVIN represents the advancement of interventional neurology as a field with the ultimate goal of improving clinical care and outcomes of patients with strokes and cerebrovascular disorders through research, innovation, and education.

A trusting association management partnership with Smithbucklin enables SVIN to experience growth through operational excellence, expertise, and scalable resources.

RSI is an all-inclusive trade association representing over 200 railway suppliers, including mechanical, communications & signaling, maintenance of way, and passenger industries.

After a comprehensive search, RSI selected Smithbucklin for its future-focused vision to elevate RSI’s advocacy and regulatory strategies.

“Through our work, we are fortunate to see the far reaching impact of associations, societies, and professional communities every day,” said Matt Sanderson, President & CEO, Smithbucklin. “The blend of talent and passion among our people and the volunteer leaders of these organizations is special and we are looking forward to growing together.”
