We know associations – the governing bodies, the committee structure, the necessity of meeting members' needs and expectations, and most importantly, the need to plan an event with ROI. We understand the demands on the non-profit executive director, the development director whose job depends on meeting fundraising goals, the conference that may need an extra pair of hands and the constant need to take programs to the next level.

Meet our leadership team of event professionals who possess a combined 100 years of passion.


Vicki Charbonneau (EVENTS and ADG)
Event Manager

Attention to detail and a passion for people make Vicki the ultimate party planner. From your quarterly board meeting to your annual conference and trade show, she works with clients to create a unique and worthwhile event. And she has a knack for not only reaching but exceeding exhibitor and sponsorship goals. A mother of three, she knows the value of getting down to business, and having a good time while reaching for the stars.

Mike Cocca (EVENTS and ADG)
Event Manager

It's not hard to find Mike on the expo floor – at the very least, it's not hard to hear him. Mike is always ready with a firm handshake, a quick joke and a hearty laugh, putting exhibitors and attendees at ease. Having Mike on site makes an event fun and relaxing for everyone involved. Don't let his easygoing demeanor fool you, though. When you forget extra badge clips or don't know exactly which box holds those pamphlets, he's the go-to guy to help any planner out of a tough spot. When not at an event, Mike takes occasional breaks from managing two associations to keep the staff's morale high and the office's atmosphere positive.

Cassie Papandrea
Event Manager

Cassie is the go-to team member for managing the contracts and logistics of any event. With a background in hotel and event management, she knows what goes into creating valuable meetings and events with purpose. When she is not developing and managing conferences, trade shows, and other programs for ADG clients, Cassie enjoys discovering new restaurants with her husband and working in her garden. She is a mom to two dogs -- an energetic French bulldog and a laid-back maltipoo -- and chief baker for all family events.
