About OMG

LSG is part of a much larger picture, with the backing of OMG, or Organization Management Group and its 40-plus association management professionals. In business since 1999, OMG offers a full range of management services to our clients. If you need award-winning design services, event planning, media relations, or any number of services to complement your legislative outreach, we can handle that too. The organizations that we manage benefit from top-notch staff with a proven record of success and high performance behind them. Because of the strength behind our staff "bench," we are large enough to provide a full-range of services to our clients while small enough to have a personal 'touch' in all that we do.
