Resources

The role and responsibility of volunteer leaders has increased significantly over the years.  Boards of Directors are charged with defining and implementing the strategic direction of associations and professional societies.  They are also held accountable for the financial well being of non-profit organizations.  Making the right decision on behalf of an association is often quite challenging. 

Providing guidance to volunteer leaders is What We Do Best. 

Starting an Association

For almost every association in existence today there was a beginning moment when a group of people banded together for a common purpose, perhaps around a conference table or neighborhood restaurant, and declared, “We need our own association.” Then what?

Selecting an Association Management Company

Deciding to hire an Association Management Company (AMC) is a crucial step for any volunteer organization.  Making the right selection is important and you should have as many resources at your disposal in order to make the right decision.  The Association Management Company Institute (AMCI) is an organization comprised of association management companies.  The AMCI has many helpful tools available to assist volunteer leaders in their search for a professional association management company. 

The American Society of Association Executives (ASAE) is another useful organization that can assist in your quest for knowledge about hiring an association management company or professional staff for your standalone association.
