"Pivot is a great place to go for Association management as Sandra and Sara have decades of experience in their field. They are highly motivated, educated and highly responsive to the needs of NAIFA Illinois members. They are also skilled at meeting planning and execution on site as well as virtually. As a past NAIFA Illinois President I’ve worked closely with their firm and I highly recommend their services."

"I have worked with Sandra and Sara at two different professional organizations on which I am on the board of directors and one of which I am the current president. They are true professionals. From scheduling and managing in person events to making sure there is adherence to the bylaws to budgeting, marketing, website management, and so much more, they focus on the details so that the leaders of the organization can stay focused on the big picture for the organization."

"There are not enough superlatives to describe Sandra Wulf. She is intelligent, compassionate, passionate, forward thinking, personable, loyal, funny, professional—the list goes on and on. She is everything you would want an Executive Director or professional manager to be and then some. I had the opportunity to work closely with Sandra for several years as an officer of the Illinois Defense Counsel. She ALWAYS made me (and the other officers) look way better than we would have on our own! She anticipates problems and issues and offers creative solutions. She pays careful attention to the important details (membership, revenue, retention, engagement) and was constantly coming up with new ideas and programs to try to increase each one. Not once, in five years in a leadership position, did I ever worry that the IDC was not headed in the right direction—and that is because I knew Sandra was our ED. If you need someone to care about your organization and provide it with the executive leadership it needs, look no further than Sandra. If you hire her, it will be the best decision you ever made."
