KDA can operate your association organizational and day-to-day activities. KDA handles a multitude of tasks on behalf of our industry association clients. KDA manages the data bases, finances, board meetings, member meetings, education seminars and conventions of many of our clients. We offer experienced, highly professional staff for any and all of the normal functions and needs of organizations that conduct business on behalf of their industry, under the leadership of industry volunteers on the board and in the committees.

What makes KDA different than our competitors?
KDA believes in a philosophy, that we can only be effective if we have earned a close, personal trust and relationship with you. This is demonstrated in our team approach to association management. Many firms provide associations with one staff person who handles all association functions. KDA provides its entire association management team for every client with each staffer being responsible for their area of expertise. This provides a better product for our clients as experts are handling every aspect of your association’s affairs.
Finally, KDA seeks clients that want their association to grow, innovate, and take the next step in the level of services they are providing its membership. KDA doesn’t want to just manage your affairs. KDA wants to integrate into your association and help make your association better and more relevant in today’s business environment.
KDA has represented various clients, including retail trade associations, professional organizations, large manufacturing corporations, energy companies, and major food retailers.
All lobbying firms in Michigan can get you a meeting with the “right” person. The key for any organization is what is your lobbyist doing after that meeting. Although there are many good firms in Lansing we believe our approach is a time tested model that meets the needs of our clients.
The KDA philosophy is rooted in three principals: coalition building, a strict no-conflict of interest policy, and a team approach.
KDA is not the type of multi-client firm that “buys” its way into offices. Instead, KDA takes great pride in its ability to build coalitions and earn trust and respect from policy leaders from honest, hard work, and communicate effectively with our clients and policy makers.
Conflicts of Interest
KDA believes it can only represent the interest of our clients if they have no concern about potential conflicts of interests. Before you sign a contract with KDA you will review our client list to ensure you have no concerns about who we represent. Additionally, as a KDA client you can be assured that our loyalty remains to you and that we are not seeking the “bigger fish.”
The Team Approach
Because KDA has no conflicts of interest with clients we take a team approach to lobbying. This means that the entire lobbying team will know the ins and outs of your needs as a client. As a client you can be assured all KDA lobbyists are working to achieve your goals.
