"Andrea Ball is a veteran association management professional with extensive experience in governance, event planning, communication, and other important administrative functions required to run an efficient non-profit association. Based on my 30 years' experience in public relations and communications, a majority of which has been with non-profit organizations, I am confident in recommending her."

Daren R. Williams, Sr. Director, Global Communications, Almond Board of California

"I have known Andrea for approximately 13 years, and I have hired her to handle a plethora of short-term and long-term projects. There is no one else I have found I can trust to do whatever job needs done. From PR to management to hands-on problems, Andrea has always come in on-time and under-budget, even in ridiculous circumstances. My favorite example is a festival that the City of Welch hosted. It was our very first Kansas City BBQ Society sanctioned cook-off. We started planning at least 6 months too late, and I knew we would never be successful. We had music, vendors, numerous competitors, and no room! To add anxiety, 2 weeks prior to the event, we learned our infrastructure was insufficient, so Andrea had to procure power, water, and internet providers. I did not sleep leading up to the event, but when I arrived, Andrea and the team she assembled were already onsite coordinating parking about 50 competitors, 30 vendors, a stage, lights, and sound, as well as our hospitality tents. We are a city of 2400. We had over 5000 satisfied attendees. No one else could have pulled that task off. I can’t make a strong enough recommendation for Andrea’s qualifications, work ethic, and abilities."

 Jason Grubb, Business Development Specialist, City of Welch, WV


"Ms. Ball has ably assisted in the management of my associations for more than 20 years, both full-time and now as an outside contractor with PlanIt World. We could not be more pleased with their services. They are experienced and well-versed in all phases of trade association management, from membership recruitment and service to program planning and on-site management to budgeting and financial planning. Her hard work, dedication to objectives, and ability to improvise has saved our association many thousands of dollars. She is pleasant to work with, knowledgeable, readily available at all times and an asset to any organization."

Paul Weller, President, Agri/Washington
