IMI has been serving not-for-profit associations since 1974.

Gary E. Leeper,  CEO

Gary Leeper, has been with IMI for over 27 years and in 1999 completed a six year professional development program for association management executives at the Institutes for Organization Management at the University of Oklahoma. Gary is a registered lobbyist in Colorado and has developed strategy on many legislative issues. He has been successful in working with regulatory agencies on behalf of our client organizations.

Gary has organized many conferences, seminars, golf tournaments and trade shows. His ability to work within the confines of pre-determined budgets, find appropriate speakers and work with exhibitors and decorators has made him a valuable asset to IMI clients.

He has been active in successfully resolving issues between state and regional chapters and their national associations. He has developed a strong liaison with organizations all over the country that are similar to our clients. This gives him unique and critical networking opportunities. In this time of change in volunteer organizations, Gary has been successful in guiding associations to develop programs that benefit the members.

He knows that volunteers in associations are busy people and their time is limited. He is constantly finding new ways to reach the goals of the association and the volunteer through innovative communication and programs. His leadership qualities and team building skills are important to the forward progress of our client associations.

Gary is active in the American Society of Association Executives, the Association Management Companies Institute and the Colorado Society of Association Executives.
