What is an AMC?

An association management company (AMC) is an independent service provider offering services and solutions for associations. This often includes customer service, administrative assistance, management solutions, and strategic guidance to organizations on a fee-for-service basis. In its essence, an AMC acts as the home office, managing the everyday tasks of nonprofits, societies, boards, and other associations. Learn more


How Will We Work Togther?

Like lawyers or accountants, AMCs usually work with a number of clients and are typically on a monthly retainer, based on the scope of services. Whenever an association has a project or initiative they need some extra help on (or even a simple question they need answered), their hired AMC can step in with industry connections, expertise, and/or staffing. In certain cases, an AMC staff member may even serve as Executive Director for their client association, truly embedding them as part of the association.
