“I have been a director of the Point Grey Village BIA since its inception. Our current Executive Director, Aila Karpio from Spets Association Management, has made many improvements, and our finances are in good order. The directors and members are very pleased with the overall accomplishments and smooth operations of our BIA. We have wonderful bright banners, tree lighting to brighten up the winter nights, street festivals, and a pleasant connectivity among the businesses.”

“I have been an active Board Member in the local chapter of a non-profit business association for over five years. The association’s main goal was to increase membership by offering educational sessions and more social events. It soon became clear that this challenge was too big for the small number of volunteer directors.
When I met Aila Karpio, I learned about how Spets Association Management helps their non-profit clients reach their goals to succeed. A great relationship began to develop. We were introduced to Patricia Tait, our organization’s Account Manager. Patricia has implemented professional event invitations, newsletters, an online registration and payment system, as well as a way to manage and grow our Chapter’s database.
Patricia helps us find great new venues for our events and manages the event registration professionally. Our events are now being planned efficiently from start to finish. After five years we now have over 150 members and host up to 10 events per season. We couldn’t have done it without the support from Spets Association Management.”
Tom Klausen, Senior Vice President First Vancouver Finance
“I have known Aila Karpio for more than a decade and have come to appreciate her as an individual of the highest moral integrity. She maintains a proficient business acumen, is extremely detail oriented, and is known for delivering projects both on-time and on budget. I would highly recommend Spets Association Management to anyone looking for administrative or project management services.”
