Dynamic Association Management for Today's Industry Leaders


Daniel J. Osterman, Director, U.S. Green Building Council, Minnesota Chapter
From the moment that IntrinXec was hired, [your team] took on the major work effort allowing us to focus on strategic planning and future development. Our organization increased from 100 to 300 members in less than one year, and IntrinXec was a major part of that effort.

Just wanted to let you know how pleased we are with the work IntrinXec’s team put in on the MasterGraphics’ industry profile. They took very good care of us and addressed all of our concerns and questions in a timely and professional manner. The final pdf exceeded our expectations, and we plan on using it as a leave behind and as part of our media kits. Thank you.

We are a resourceful, professional and fun team of management professionals whose core purpose is to foster an environment of meaningful success for others.

Our Core Values


We are always seeking to learn new things and use our knowledge to enrich the lives of those around us.


We do not depend solely on our own knowledge and experiences, but instead look to the insight and perspective of others to help us make the best decision.


We are aware of, and sensitive to the impact that our actions have on those around us.


We are open and honest about the decisions that we make and transparent about our reasoning behind them.

When IntrinXec was formed in 2004, our founder, Jaime Nolan, had a clear vision for the company:

  1. To build a company where employees had a direct influence on the overall success of the company
  2. To provide a work environment that people enjoyed coming to each day
  3. To support the volunteer leaders of our client organizations by providing them with tools and resources to succeed in their leadership roles

Twelve years later, we are proud to see that this vision has come to life. Having been named one of the Top 100 Best Places to Work by Minnesota Business Magazine for four consecutive years (2013, 2014, 2015, 2016), our employees are dedicated to the success of our clients and each other’s success. In fact, the entire team at IntrinXec collectively created a purpose statement for IntrinXec: “To inspire meaningful success.” 

From celebrating our clients successes, to company successes, to each other’s personal successes, you will feel the passion and camaraderie in all of your interactions with our team. Our four core values (integrity, continuous improvement, respect, and collaboration) are celebrated and recognized every month at our staff meetings and successes and challenges our team members face are shared and discussed collectively. This teamwork approach provides greater value to our clients in that we are able to provide a greater depth of experience and shared knowledge across the board.

We provide full service management, events, and consulting for nonprofit trade associations and professional societies. Our clients range from small statewide organizations to international business trade groups, and we serve them in areas such as executive level staffing, strategic planning, meeting and conference management, publication management, graphic design, member services, financial management and much more.

Management PhilosophyA ssociations are not needed for the same reasons that they were created for 50-100 years ago. Today’s associations need to learn to adapt to the changing business environment if they want to continue to stay relevant.

We believe that association leaders should be spending the majority of their time on creating value for their members and driving improvements in their industry.

The problem is, most association leaders become more focused on the tactical details of running the organization and managing volunteers than they do on creating a better future.

We call this the Operations Focus Trap™, and if you’re not careful, it will sink all the passion in your organization.

Associations are made of 4 pillars – Finance, Member Engagement, Leadership, and Organizational Structure. When one is weak, it negatively affects the performance of the others.

We believe that that role of your management team is to ensure that these 4 pillars are continuously evaluated and strengthened. We realize that our company can only grow if our clients are successful long-term. That is why you can be sure that our ultimate objective is to see you achieve your goals and improve your industry.
