Why choose an AMC?
Association Management Companies (AMCs) are specifically geared towards serving the needs of non-profit and trade organisations and professional groups. We understand that our clients may often have limited internal resources and work towards ensuring these are utilised as efficiently as possible whilst still driving the day-to-day operations and working towards the goals of the group.
AMCs are designed to offer these specialised services through two primary models:
Full Service offers just that. All operations are handled by the AMC including (but not limited to) services such as membership, marketing, policy development and governance in addition to offering a full office environment you would expect if you invested in an office of your own (staff, IT, physical address etc).
Outsourced Delivery consists of support in one or more areas of operations for the client. Including membership, meetings, trade shows, regulatory advice, and certification amongst many other services. This could be in support of an existing structure/office environment.
As an AMC provides a centralised office for several clients, any overhead and many other costs can be shared across the company and its clients, increasing various resources for the client – financial benefits are gained from leveraging shared resources and buying power is increased; skilled staff are available and specialists can be drawn from the AMC personnel pool on-demand. Office and employee management hassles are also no longer an issue which ensures member and board time is freed up, ensuring them to focus on the core mission.
Be sure to ask the right questions when contacting an AMC – download ‘what to include in a request for proposal’ RFP Questions.
