What is an AMC?

Association Management Companies (AMCs) offer staffing and expertise to professional societies, trade groups, not-for-profits and philanthropic organizations. AMCs offer specialized services to manage day-to-day operations as well as assist in advancing long-term goals. An AMC may provide services through two models: 

  • Full Service: turnkey management for all areas including daily operations
  • Outsourced services: support of particular project or area of operation, i.e. strategic planning or convention management

Utilizing an AMC can provide greater agility and financial advantages to Associations. The freedom from handling the daily operations allows Boards to maintain their focus on the mission and strategic plan of the organization. Increased member satisfaction also often results from the professionalism and responsiveness of the AMC staff.
