“Working with Marti and her team has been an absolute pleasure! Planning a successful conference is no easy task, but when you have such great partners in your corner, it makes life a lot easier. Marti and her team are both thorough and thoughtful – no detail goes overlooked, no request goes unnoticed, and throughout it all is a shared commitment to providing the best possible experience for attendees. Our organization has a deep commitment to equity and providing conference experiences where all attendees feel welcome, included, and cared for. During the planning process for our 2018 conference, Marti and her staff worked tirelessly on our behalf to ensure that the on-site experience was exceptional. From co-designing our menu to accounting for attendee food allergies to the provision of gender-neutral restrooms – The Balcom Group understood our organization’s values and made them a reality for our attendees. I can’t say enough positive things about Marti and her staff – they are simply amazing!”

Storme Gray, Director of Programs, Emerging Practitioners in Philanthropy

“Marti’s indefatigable energy, steel-trap memory and remarkable ability to motivate others to do their best work has made her an indispensable part of our team for over a decade now. We can’t imagine our conference without her.”

David Ezer, Senior Director of Programs, Jewish Funders Network

“The Balcom Group is not a vendor, or even a  partner, they are part of the family. Our team and theirs mesh together into one with conference attendees benefiting. After close to two decades of working with the Balcom Group, they probably know us and our Conference better than we do! Conferences are about relationship building and nobody does that better than the Balcom Group. They have the ability to anticipate needs, respond quickly and all with smiles on their faces.”

Henry Berman, Chief Executive Officer, Exponent Philanthropy

“We have worked with The Balcom Group for many years and consider them an exceptional partner.

We have complete trust in Marti and her team’s expertise and their ability to navigate any challenge with grace and aplomb.”
