Selecting an AMC

The rapid growth of professional associations and societies has dramatically increased the need for effective, professional management. However, the traditional solution to professional management – a large investment in full-time staff, office space and equipment or operating with volunteers who often lack the time and expertise in managing an association – result in high overhead and problems because association goals frequently get lost in day-to-day details.

The concept of association management has existed for more than 100 years and remains an alternative to this situation, one that offers advantages that associations and societies are rapidly discovering – the association management company.

An association management company is a firm of highly skilled professionals whose goal is to provide management expertise and specialized administrative services to charities, associations and other not-for-profit organizations in an efficient, cost-effective manner.
