Potomac Management Resources Sold To Former COO; Carol Montoya Assumes Role As President

Tuesday, February 7, 2006

Carol Montoya is the new owner and president of Potomac
Management Resources, a full-service association management and event planning firm, after completing
the purchase of the company in early January from founder and former president Noelle McGlynn.
Montoya has been with the company since 1999 and has been its chief operating officer since 2004.
“Carol has been running the day-to-day operations of the company for the past year and has been
integrally involved in all aspects of the firm,” said McGlynn, who is retiring from the industry. “There is
no one better to carry on the work of the company in a seamless and professional manner. Her ability to
service clients and her development of professional relationships with them have gone a long way
towards the growth and reputation of PMR. I am confident she will continue to lead the company in a
dynamic way.”

Montoya, 33 years old of Alexandria, Va., joined PMR as Director, Client Relations after working on
social marketing contracts for several government agencies at Lisboa Associates, a DC-based
communications firm. At PMR she has produced large and small-scale programs and events and handled
the day-to-day aspects of several professional associations. During her tenure, she has worked to broaden
the company’s base to include expanded offerings and services.

“I’m proud that Noelle has entrusted the legacy of her company with me,” Montoya said. “Today,
associations are driven by increases in membership, coupled with a greater need for service, benefits, and
value, which is why they seek the expertise of PMR. I intend to continue the steady growth of PMR
through value added services for our existing and future clientele. On a strategic level, I will stay very
close to our clients, offering them the benefits of my accrued experience.”

Montoya earned her B.A. in Political Science from Hood College in Frederick, Md. She is involved in the
International Association of Association Management Companies (IAAMC), and serves on the boards of
the Association for Women in Communications-DC Chapter, Hood College Alumnae and Alumni
Association, the Editorial Board for Hood Magazine, and the Tibetan Museum Society. Montoya is also
currently working to achieve a Certified Association Executive accreditation for herself and an IAAMC
accreditation for the company.

PMR began in 1996 as an event planning firm for large scale community events, public policy programs,
and conferences. As the business grew, the company built additional capabilities from the skill set used to
execute successful events. In 2000, PMR took on its first association client and currently has a staff of
nine that services nine association and foundation clients, in addition to a range of special event clients.
PMR’s services include executive oversight, staffing, administration, financial management, board
facilitation and relations, communications, member services, and event planning. Its current national and
locally-based association clients include the Advertising Club of Metropolitan Washington, Retail
Contractors Association, American Institute of Constructors, Women in Technology, and Women in
Housing & Finance. Potomac Forum and the Fabretto Children’s Foundation use PMR to plan their
programs and events.
