Change in FARB Management

posted: November 6, 2020

Dear FARB community,

We are very pleased to announce that the Federation of Associations of Regulatory Boards, effective immediately, is now receiving its association management services from WJ Weiser (Weiser). Weiser succeeds the law firm of Atkinson & Atkinson, whose work in founding and sustaining FARB through its growth over many years is acknowledged and greatly appreciated. In particular, we extend our sincere thanks to outgoing FARB Executive Director Dale Atkinson for leading FARB to this juncture of progress and possibilities.

We at FARB are thrilled to have new management with this well-known Association Management firm. Weiser is a full service Association Management Company servicing over 90 specialty and subspecialty societies on the international, national, regional, and state levels. For more information on Weiser, you may visit their website at wjweiser.com. Barbara Arango will assume the role of Executive Director and will be assisted by various members of the Weiser team. For many years, Barbara was a key part of the Atkinson & Atkinson team that supported FARB, and we look forward to working with her again in this new capacity.

With the transition in management there will be some minor changes to member processing. The website address remains the same, farb.org, but the site will be updated and there will be a new member portal. You will receive additional information about your new profile once it is ready to access.

On behalf of the FARB Executive Board, I would like to express our excitement about embarking on a new chapter for FARB. We are sincerely looking forward to a successful and productive partnership with the Weiser team.
