Management Solutions Plus, Inc. (MSP) was founded in 1993 by Beth W. Palys, FASAE, CAE, as a small, woman-owned association management company (AMC). Her first client, the Landscape Contractors Association MD • DC • VA, is still one of our valued clients today.

In 2007, MSP became one of the handful of AMCs to earn accreditation from both of our industry’s most respected organizations—the American Society of Association Executives and the Association Management Companies Institute. With the purchase of MSP by Shawn McLaughlin, AIF® in 2017, MSP is positioned to maintain its growth while continuing to provide the hands-on quality service that our clients have come to appreciate.

In 2020, MSP acquired King Management Group, an AMC based in the Greater Baltimore area. With this acquisition, MSP currently serves 30 clients and employs 46 talented associates.
