Thriving trade associations. Engaged professional societies. Connected communities.

You can count on TMG for customized management services, a relatable approach, and just a dash of quirk and humor.

Welcome to TMG, the purpose-driven association management company.

At the core of our success
is our culture

We consider the feelings of, and effects of our decisions on, others. There is no issue in business that is more important than personal relationships.  We strive to be an ethical and honest organization in everything we do. “Please” and “thank you” are used sincerely and regularly.

We Do That

At The Markens Group, we know associations. We connect people with common interests to solve problems, share ideas, promote best practices, and close gaps. With a 'can-do' attitude, we bring business discipline, strategy, and professional services to trade associations, societies, and member organizations. Learn how we do that and so much more in this short video.
