Who We Are
Linda is the president of CAMI and has seen the company grow and thrive since it began in 1995. While she may not work on every account every day, she’s very much a hands-on leader and is always available to both her clients and her employees to answer questions, give advice, or offer an empathetic ear.
Linda served as account manager at Association Resources in Newton, Mass., for nearly five years, and there she saw firsthand the importance of communicating effectively with the association membership and working closely with board and committee members. At Association Resources, she handled financial, management and administrative matters for groups including SPRI and Planned Giving Group of New England, who are still loyal clients of hers today. It is building long lasting relationships with clients that is one of CAMI’s best qualities. As CAMI expands, Linda has been able to pass along her knowledge and expertise to her employees, who take notice of her firm commitment to the client-focused, effective work style, and careful planning in order to keep CAMI’s service at the highest grade.
Linda is a graduate of Framingham State College and has a degree in Psychology.

Senior Association Administrator

A Salem State University Alum, Melanie graduated in 2013 with a Bachelor’s of Science in Business Management, with a concentration in Hospitality. Interning at a hotel during her degree, she learned the finer points of event planning, customer service, and the organizational skills she uses daily. Before joining the CAMI team, she assisted the busy engineers at Stratasys, and then Keurig; planning their schedules, tracking their projects and making sure things ran smoothly. When she is not working, she can usually be found doing something creative, playing with her nephew, or relaxing with her two basset hounds (in true hound fashion, they prefer laying in the grass over a long walk).

At CAMI, she relies on her experience and her superb management and organizational skills to oversee and keep track of details, large and small, for all her clients. Amy’s memory, judgment, and experience also make her a crucial resource around the office.
At any given moment Amy may be designing publicity materials, keeping track of members and volunteers, attending board meetings, balancing the books or just handling inquiries over the phone. Throughout her tenure at CAMI, Amy has proven to be adept at organizing events of all sizes–whether a small, monthly educational meeting or a large, annual trade show. Amy runs her events seamlessly, with each aspect and detail, down to the last handout, accounted for and perfected.
