About Us

Begun by accident in 1981, The Dobbs Group manages trade associations & professional societies, with long term relationships both the goal and the result. We work best with organizations of dynamic, fun people looking to grow their association and expecting to have a good time doing it. Their members are busy in their own professions, value their volunteer time & are looking to work with effective professionals to advance their association programs. If you are looking for a secretarial service, this isn’t the place. If you haven’t changed any of your association procedures or processes in five years, we are not for you. We will only annoy you with ideas, strategies & best-practices to increase productivity and free up your volunteer’s precious time.

The Dobbs Group’s talented support staff provides exceptional customer service for the groups under management. With no desire to be a large association management company, we have an innovative approach to staffing and office space that allows us to keep our overhead low. We staff up for client projects as needed, understand a budget & meet deadlines. We do not take on clients that will overlap with another group’s programming. We spend money on every proven technology to advance our clients’ programs as well as the expertise needed to use it.

Deborah Dobbs, CAE, founded the company and serves as the Executive Director for all the associations under management. She earned the designation Certified Association Executive (CAE) in 1997 from the American Society of Association Executives (ASAE) and has renewed it four times. A graduate of Washington University in St. Louis, she completed the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Institute Program in 1991 and chaired the Board of Regents for that program at UCLA in 1999. A member of both ASAE and the California Society of Association Executives and frequent attendee to their conferences, Deborah keeps up an invaluable network of colleagues in the association world as her most valuable resource.
