About OMG

LSG is part of a much larger picture, with the backing of OMG, or Organization Management Group and its 20-plus association management professionals. In business since 1999, OMG offers a full range of management services to our clients. If you need award-winning design services, event planning, media relations, or any number of services to complement your legislative outreach, we can handle that, too. The organizations that we manage benefit from top-notch staff with a proven record of success and high performance behind them. Because of the strength behind our staff "bench," we are large enough to provide a full-range of services to our clients while small enough to have a personal touch in all that we do.

The LSG Difference

OMG is a rare AMC that combines and provides the distinct advantages and efficiencies of both association management and government relations. It creates more opportunities for members to participate and keeps the broader view in perspective at all times. At OMG, government relations is an active part of our senior management team, our daily conversations across all staff, and our company’s strategic planning. We share the same communications, technology, and marketing resources. When working with volunteer leaders, association management and government relations are inseparable. All of that makes your messaging more comprehensive, consistent, and effective.
