ABOUT TEAM DYNAMICS

Team Dynamics draws from a large group of talented and skilled professionals in the human resources, IT, legal, accounting and financial sectors. We work exclusively with experienced project managers and individuals with corporate and association experience. We create an outsourced team that complements your team.

Laura D. Skoff, CAE, President

Skoff has more than 20 years of association management experience including serving as executive director for several associations: Association Media & Publishing (formerly SNAP), American Society of Women Accountants (ASWA), Audio Publishers Association (APA) and as chief operating officer of a multi-million-dollar management company, Coulter Nonprofit Management (formerly Association Management Bureau).

She has also served as interim chief operating officer for the Society for Technical Communication (STC), the Ambulatory Surgery Center Association (ASC) and the American Geophysical Union (AGU).

Her principal expertise is in driving nonprofit success through strategic and efficient planning. Her business is dedicated to providing those solutions to her clients.

Skoff is active with numerous professional societies including the American Society of Association Executives (ASAE) and is an active committee member of the Finance and Administration Roundtable, an AMCInstitute committee member, which ensures that she is at the forefront of innovations in the nonprofit industry. She holds a certified association executive (CAE) designation from ASAE.

Skoff is owner and moderator of the LinkedIn group Virtual Non-Profit Advisors where executives managing the virtual operations of non-profit organizations have the opportunity to learn from each other. As technology improves, budgets are squeezed and personnel seek better work-life balance, the virtual dynamic will become more prevalent. This is the forum for early adopters to learn from each other and advance the art of virtual management. Go to LinkedIn and join the Virtual Non-Profit Advisors group.

Skoff received her BA in Political Science/International Relations from the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, Virginia.

“Team Dynamics was our partner of choice when we needed it most. Time and staff bandwidth were short and TD took charge of the project, kept us updated and successfully engaged our most important members – our sponsors. They managed the project from start to finish at a reasonable cost and no hassle. TD is an outsourcing solution we will use again!”

 -- Tanya Tolpegin, Executive Director, PLANET Association


Laura Skoff joined Melissa Fireman, CEO of Washington Career Services as a guest speaker at the Maryland Commission for Women seminar: “Road Back to Work.” The session addressed the concerns of women reentering the workforce and the steps to becoming competitive job seekers.


Rachel Shea’s “The Mommy Trap,” a review of The Feminine Mistake by Leslie Bennetts leaves readers, particularly mothers, with the sense that they’d better not leave their jobs – and certainly not their husbands -- or doom and financial ruin are theirs. Unfortunately, what is overlooked in the mommy track discussion is that being at home can be not only personally fulfilling but also financially rewarding. As a corporate executive turned entrepreneur, I started a business that taps the talented at-home workforce to provide outsourced business services to organizations. Bennetts’ assertion “that if mothers continue to leave their jobs, instead of forcing employers and policymakers to address the real needs of real families, no solution will be found” couldn’t be further from the truth. We’ve found our solution -- we’re at home with the kids, working flexible hours and commuting to the laptop in the den. Why would we want to join that rat race again?
