Who We Are

Linda King

Linda King

President

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.
