EAI Testimonials

American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology

"Mr. Slawny and his staff took the College from a 'shoe box' management situation in 1982 to a thriving, financially sound organization in just a few years. Obviously, this is a real tribute to staff's business acumen."
Edward J. O'Connell, MD, Past President
Professor of Pediatrics, Mayo Medical School

"As a past member of the Board of Regents, then vice president, president-elect and president, I have worked very closely with the EAI staff over many years. They have made our organizational meetings financially more successful every year through hard work, creative ideas and development of close relationships with health care company sponsors."
Diane E. Schuller, MD, Past President

"As President of American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology, I would like to thank you and your colleagues at EAI for all you have done to help build our organization into the world class professional society it is today.

I would also like to formally recognize EAI's reputation for creating outstanding and innovative conventions. Your organization has certainly helped ACAAI to achieve positive growth. Thanks to the diligent efforts of EAI, our organization has grown from 1,700 members to more than 6,000. . . and increased its assets from $500,000 to more than $20 million."
Myron Zitt, MD, Past President

American Society of Colon and Rectal Surgeons (EAI client 1988-2018)

"I want to thank you again for all your help and support throughout this past year and especially during this past week.  I have the utmost respect, admiration and appreciation for you and your team.  I know fully well the critical infrastructure your group provides our organization throughout the year, but especially at the Annual Meeting, and I am grateful we could celebrate together. Thanks for all your expertise and professionalism in what you do for ASCRS.  It has been a pleasure to get to know you, and I look forward to future endeavors."  
David Vargas, MD, Committee Vice-Chair

"We interviewed several association management companies, some quite large and well known nationally. Despite the glossy, professionally planned and professionally marketed presentations of some of the larger groups, we very fortunately decided to change our course with the help of EAI. This was a key decision that has helped us prosper, survive and particularly enjoy our role as a national Society."
Peter A. Volpe, MD, Past President

"In selecting adjectives to describe EAI, only superlatives come to mind. Your firm conducts its business in an efficient, trustworthy and friendly manner. You and your staff are industrious, innovative and reliable. The quality of work is exceptional and the zeal and enthusiasm with which you and your staff approach each task is exemplary."
Philip H. Gordon, MD, Past President

"They [EAI] are highly reliable people, and, on a personal note, they are extremely easy to work with and highly ethical. I am pleased to endorse them without reservation."
David A. Rothenberger, MD, Past President

"I do not need a very long memory to reflect on my eight years on the Executive Council as its secretary and president to recall that when EAI came to ASCRS, the Society was in serious financial and organizational disarray. In what seemed to be a very short time, you brought us to financial security and organizational harmony and, most amazingly, without any pain. This change has allowed ASCRS to meet the needs of its members and expand our activities to benefit not only our members, but our specialty"
Samuel B. Labow, MD, Past President

Academy of Osseointegration

"You were extremely helpful during a stressful time, and my family and I really appreciate it.  You have always been helpful to AO and the directors/officers since I have known you – that has never changed. One of the best aspects of working in the leadership of AO is being able to work with Kevin Smith, Mike Slawny and the entire staff of EAI."
Russell Nishimura, MD, Past President

"Super job tonight!!! It could not have been any better (same as last night). I am really really proud of everything that you all have done for the meeting this year!!! Many many thanks for ALL that you have done and accomplished! I think you have set a new standard for the AO meeting!! Many many thanks."
David Cochran, MD, Past President

"The EAI management staff strengths are summed up as follows: they produce an excellent annual meeting, the best in the profession; they are competent; have good follow-up and are good at getting corporate support."
Ralph J. Bloch & Associates

American Society for Blood and Marrow Transplantation (EAI client 1996-2018) 

"ASBMT has been extremely fortunate in having very stable and highly skilled management. The Society is run very smoothly, and it is also nimble in responding to and addressing new issues that impact members. The administrative team is unfailingly highly responsive and professional. Thank you for guiding ASBMT from its early gestation to the major resource it is to its members and the larger transplant field today."
Helen Heslop, MD, Past President

"Having been president of a prior society and also one who runs a very active clinical program, I know quality when I see it. EAI's many outstanding contributions have made the Society the success that it is. Our outstanding track record, increasing growth, fabulous meetings, financial success, as well as the many programs we institute, are clear to all. What is clear to me is the success of this Society could not be achieved without the commitment, skill, attention to detail and perseverance of you and your staff."
Robert S. Negrin, MD, Past President
Professor of Medicine, Stanford University Medical Center

"As I recall our trials and tribulations and the sheer volume of work that went into establishing our Society, I am frankly amazed that it happened at all. That it turned into a truly outstanding organization representing the best in clinical transplantation medicine and transplantation science is all the more impressive. I believe that there is clear unanimity of opinion among all of the Board members, past and present, that EAI's contribution to the Society is what made it happen."
Joseph H. Antin, MD, Past President
Professor of Medicine, Harvard Medical School

"During my term as President, I felt very comfortable and confident that the management of our financial affairs was in very good hands under EAI's overall guidance. That our financial situation is so favorable is in significant measure the result of your guidance in developing new sources of revenue. Moreover, you have accomplished this without financial risk to the Society."
Armand Keating, MD, Past President

The Society of Surgical Oncology (EAI client 1993-2012)

"Society membership doubled, our cash reserves have increased significantly, our annual meeting abstract submissions have set a record every year and attendance at the annual meeting increased by almost 50%. It has truly been a spectacular turnaround of a major professional organization. I have nothing but the highest praise for EAI"
Charles M. Balch, MD, Past President

"I just want to express what an extraordinary job you at EAI have done. Your capable leadership, insightfulness and direction are clearly the reasons we are where we are today."
Kirby I. Bland, MD, Past President

"What can I say…what you and your staff have achieved is absolutely remarkable and your commitment to the SSO in implementing the initial phase of our strategic plan has been nothing short of impressive. EAI and your staff are incredibly responsive to the SSO's needs and our future is brighter because of all your efforts.  I greatly appreciate everything all of you do on behalf of the SSO. You are the best and the fuel in our engine. Thanks for being so wonderful."
Mitchell C. Posner, MD, Past President

"This result is outstanding! EAI has done an absolutely STELLAR job in soliciting partners/sponsorship of the CIA grants...$1.15M from sponsors is simply amazing. It's absolutely awesome work on your part."
