What is Association Bridge?
We create spaces where community association leaders and the professionals who serve them can successfully navigate the challenges they face, reach the goals they choose, find satisfaction and joy in their service, and make raving fans of association members.
Thomas L. Willis, PCAM® formed Association Bridge, LLC in 2006 as a part-time venture. It was a platform to share lessons learned during a long and unconventional community association management career. He was a Vice President for a leading management company in the Washington, DC Metro area. He was responsible for on-boarding new clients, mentoring managers, providing board training, facilitating very successful developer transitions, complicated budget development, and other consulting services to benefit the company’s clients. He used Association Bridge as a vehicle to help clients outside the niche served by the management company.
Tom realized that he had the unique benefit of learning from some of the finest mentors both inside and outside the community association field. He became determined to share the benefit of his experience with the next generation of community association managers, and as many communities as possible.
On July 1, 2018, Tom relaunched Association Bridge as his full time vehicle to achieve his professional mission.
