During his first tenure with Connerly & Associates from 1982-1989, Marc worked as the firm’s energy consultant, establishing a California energy consulting division that was responsible for reviewing building plans and performing calculations to demonstrate compliance with Title 24 standards. He also collaborated on the development of Title 24 training materials that were presented to building departments, contractors and building designers.

In 2005, Marc returned to Connerly & Associates as business development consultant to the firm, as well as association manager of the Roofing Contractors Association of California. Over the next several years, he assumed management of the Associated Roofing Contractors of Northern California, the California Golf Course Owners Association, the National Golf Course Owners Association of Arizona, and the Golf Course Superintendents Association of Northern California.

Marc serves as primary Board liaison, association spokesperson, advocate, and lobbyist on regulatory and legislative issues. He oversees membership and sponsorship growth, revenue development programs, and organizational proceedings.

In addition, Marc orchestrates planning and lobbying contracts with SMUD, the State of California, and the California Fire Training Alliance.

As Vice President of Connerly & Associates, he also oversees business development, strategic planning, company vision and growth.

When not busy serving our associations, you might see Marc at an MLB game near you! He is a big MLB fan and loves the San Francisco Giants. He has attended games in 23 of the current 30 major league ballparks (plus 5 that are no longer in existence), and is determined to visit all 30!
