Drum roll please ...


Network joins a global organization that is a leader in the association space, MCI USA.

This alliance elevates Network into a larger association services platform that will better enable us to meet our clients’ evolving sales, event and publishing needs. Delivering on this promise requires continued growth and adaptation to the association, media sales, events, and publishing industries. The current business climate in the association market demands delivering a broader mix of services via a very competitive business model, and high quality, high touch services that can be personalized to the need of each client. Adapting to the evolving business climate in order to deliver the best outcomes for our association clients is work that we have done many times during our 35 year history.

To that end, Network has joined forces with a global organization. We are extremely pleased to announce that Network was acquired and is now part of MCI Group, a 30 year old, privately held company with impressive global reach and resources. This is a strategic growth decision that expands and further brightens the future of our company and our people.

“Carrie and I have worked over the past several years to build an excellent team,” said Chip Boyce. Chip has owned Network since 1992, and is now Special Consultant to MCI USA. “Finding the right partner was the final step in the process of ensuring that Network would continue to evolve with the association marketplace and provide a full range of services enabling associations to capitalize on best practices and grow revenue.”

“I absolutely can not imagine a better scenario for Network, our team, and our clients. MCI Group represents for us an excellent fit culturally,” said Chip. “Their global presence is increasingly important to most of our current association clients. The strengths we bring in sales, design and our end-to-end sales platform blend in an ideal manner with MCI Group’s goals for the US market and worldwide. This alignment truly is the definition of win-win."

While it is exciting to be part of a global platform and team, Network pledges to continue to operate with the same dedication to service as we do today for our collaborations with each of our association partnerships.

Network’s leadership and staff will stay in place as part of this evolution, and our offices will remain just outside of Baltimore.

We look forward to continuing our success with our best-in-market association clients, as well as finding the places where this added level of service offerings can drive greater success for organizations.
