|Robert Skrob, CPA, CAE
Robert has served as the Executive Director of FADMO
since January 2001. Under his
leadership, FADMO's membership has grown to represent over 99% of Florida's
tourism industry. Robert launched two
annual events on behalf of the association;
in the Fall the Annual Conference dedicated to CEOs while the
Destination Marketing Summit provides education to all levels of county tourism
promotion agencies in the Spring.
Robert is the owner of Membership Services, Inc., an association
management company specializing in membership marketing, recruitment and
retention. In 1999 he was tested and
certified by the American Society of Association Executives as a Certified
Association Executive, a designation he has maintained in the years since. He's the author of 3 books on marketing and
is a frequent presenter, coach and consultant in the marketing field. Although he hasn't practiced public
accounting since 2003 he maintains his license and fulfills its continuing
education requirements for his mother, who wants him to keep his license so he
has something to fall back on if this association management and marketing
consultant thing doesn't work out.
Robert has been married to Kory since 1994 and has two children, a
daughter Samantha (21) and a son Robert (16).
He enjoys running and smoking Partagas #10 cigars, although rarely at
the same time.
