WIT Taps Toy Association to Handle Management Services
October 25, 2017,
NEW YORK, N.Y. – To remain focused on its mission and members, Women in Toys, Licensing & Entertainment (WIT) has decided to outsource its association management services to The Toy Association.
This will include its administrative, financial management, legal coordination, and back-end membership support, affording WIT the opportunity to improve productivity and efficiency. With this agreement, WIT will continue to run as an independent non-profit organization, without any changes to its governance structure.
“We’re passionate believers in WIT, its leadership, and the thousands of professionals it serves every year,” says Steve Pasierb, president & CEO of The Toy Association. “It’s both a distinct honor and a fantastic opportunity to bring our organizations closer together, to strengthen WIT’s operations, and look for opportunities to help take this great organization to the next level.”
WIT has more than 1,200 members worldwide and chapters across the U.S., Canada, Hong Kong, France, the UK and Australia. WIT’s resources, events, educational and empowerment initiatives, and scholarship programs are funded in part by its generous sponsors and partners, including Mattel, Nickelodeon, Spin Master, Hasbro, PlayMonster, Bandai and Toys “R” Us.
