The Gardian blog serves as a rich content library illuminating topics and issues of importance to the association community, particularly as they relate to professional development. Our blog has been featured in Alltop and Association Universe. Weekly posts are written by Learning Strategist Aaron Wolowiec and Digital Content Manager Kristen Parker, with monthly posts from professional guest bloggers in the association management industry and nonprofit sector.


We soak up the latest research and trends on learning then incorporate those methods and practices into the resources we share and the meetings we manage.


We create intentional networking environments for clients and learners while also belonging to networks and organizations that result in our own growth and development.


We believe that professional development adds value only if it is transferred through meaningful rehearsal and retrieval exercises and then applied on the job.


“Aaron’s vision for association excellence is known in professional and association circles across the country. He embodies the philosophy of continuous improvement, bringing new tools and resources to his clients as well as his own professional development. However, his impact is felt strongest at home. Aaron is a driving force to help Michigan association professionals think more clearly, act with purpose, and achieve results when leaders thought the well was dry. Michigan associations have thrived because Aaron has shared tools, resources, and inspiration with the community unselfishly.”

“Aaron and Lindsay were an outstanding addition to our professional development curriculum. Their intentional delivery and attention to detail were part of a total package coupling experiential learning and instruction. The group fully participated and engaged in a thorough Q&A session that left them ready for more. They brought one of our most highly valued programs in a long time.”
