Treeline will serve as CGIC’s corporate headquarters and provide staffing which includes Patricia Thacker, of Ottawa, Ontario who will serve CGIC as its Executive Director.

Treeline will replace AMCES, which has been serving as CGIC’s association management company since 2010. Due to other client commitments, AMCES chose not to renew its contract with CGIC for another term and we are grateful for the professional service provided by AMCES over the past ten years. CGIC is also pleased that David Miriguay who has been part of the AMCES team serving CGIC will continue on in the role of Director of Education.

Wisdom Ncube, of Surrey, British Columbia, President of CGIC said “We are extremely excited to have a company like Treeline Associates serve as our association management company. We chose them because they demonstrated to have the expertise we need to continue the implementation of CGIC’s Growth and Sustainability Plan”

Association management companies, or AMCs, are for-profit businesses that manage non-profit associations to help them grow and prosper. They offer the expertise, staffing, and resources that allow professional societies, trade groups, not-for-profits, and philanthropic organizations to effectively manage day-to-day operations and advance their long-term goals. AMCs deliver high levels of expertise and accountability so that associations can continue to increase their value and relevance to members.
