Why Hire an AMC?

Why Hire an AMC

Association management companies, or AMCs, are for-profit businesses that manage associations to help them grow and prosper. AMCs bring the expertise, staffing, and resources to effectively manage day-to-day operations of professional societies, trade groups, not-for-profits, and philanthropic organizations—allowing their leadership to focus on long-term goals that will increase their value and relevance to their members.

Associations may look to AMCs for full-service association management to handle all of the day-to-day operations of the association: governance, membership, meetings, marketing, finances, and more. Alternatively, some stand-alone or volunteer-run organizations may only wish to outsource one or two program areas, such as their meetings, financial management, marketing, or social media.

As a boutique AMC, MSP has the flexibility to work with each of our clients in the manner that is the best fit for that particular organization.

AMCi Accreditation

AMCs who maintain AMCi accreditation have adopted a Standard of Good Practices for the association management Industry, developed by the AMCi with guidance from the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). AMCi accredited AMCs have invested significant resources to meet the requirements of this standard. “Achievement of AMC Institute Accreditation demonstrates an AMC’s commitment and ability to deliver consistent quality service to present and prospective clients.” (Source: www.amcinstitute.org)

MSP has maintained its standing as an AMCi accredited AMC since 2003.
