Lynda J. Patterson, FASAE, CAE | AMPED Association Management
Exceptional Women 2020
Lynda Patterson’s leadership led to her first executive director position at age 25. She spent the next 15 years running trade and professional societies.
When she moved to Madison 12 years ago, she looked for a national association CEO role. Seeing none, Patterson built her own association management company, AMPED Association Management.
“We’ve brought 17 national associations to Madison and Washington, D.C.,” she said of the company’s success. “We’re their headquarters.”
AMPED’s diverse clients include Women in Government Relations, Association of Equipment Management Professionals, Fantasy Sports and Gaming Association, and Americas Committee for Treatment and Research in Multiple Sclerosis. AMPED also provides consulting services and strategic planning for associations and their volunteer leaders.
Patterson said she hopes other women are inspired by her success as a business owner, volunteer leader and mother of four.
“I really want to help open doors for women,” she said.
