Resources for Choosing An Association Management Company
Traditionally, associations have hired their own executive directors and staff, secured their own facilities, and managed their own assets. The trend today, however, is for trade and professional associations to engage an association management company (AMC). This trend reflects the growing need to cut costs, promote efficiency, share resources, and access expertise.
Although selecting a management company that is right for your association may seem overwhelming, it does not need to be an onerous task. This document was developed to assist you in that process, particularly in regard to soliciting potential AMCs, evaluating management proposals, conducting interviews with firms, selecting the firm that's best for your organization, developing the contractual arrangement, and transitioning the activities of your association to its new management.
