What is an AMC?
What is an Association Management Company?
An association management company (AMC) is a for-profit company that manages the administration of multiple non-profit associations and professional societies. Often the AMC is able to hire individuals that specialize in all areas of association management such as database management, event planning or website design.
The AMC can serve as the “Brick and Mortar” of the non-profit association providing not only a physical address but administrative support. The AMC staff can provide the day-to-day support that an association would need – database management, customer service, email support, telephone support and more.
The AMC works closely with the organizations Board of Directors and Committees. The AMC can provide assistance in scheduling, meeting management, minute taking, material distribution. Often the AMC can assign a team member to serve as an “Ex Officio” member of various committees serving as a resource when needed. Meeting management and event planning can be very draining to the resources of a volunteer based non-profit association, but for an AMC with professional meeting planners on staff – they are easily and successfully accomplished.
