What is an Association Management Company?

McDonald Association Management Company Logo

An Association Management Company (AMC) is an alternative method for management of a non-profit organization. An AMC can quickly adapt to the changing needs of a trade or professional association. AMC’s can be a lower-cost alternative to the traditional model of a stand-alone office headquarters. They can also partner with associations that have dedicated staff and provide services on a temporary or permanent basis.

AMC’s offer the advantage of the collective knowledge of their highly skilled employees to anticipate the future needs of an association, to stay current on the latest management trends, and to provide expertise to implement decisions and direction from the association’s Board of Directors.

Association Management Companies have been an effective resource to non-profit associations for over 100 years; however, many board members today are unaware that this model of operating associations exists.

Strategic Advantage

Ability to support and implement strategic direction of the board. AMC’s employ a cadre of experienced staff specialists to meet the needs of multiple organizations. Skilled workers can be called into action as needed, often at a fraction of the cost of salaried full-time employees.

Meeting Specific Needs

AMC’s not only offer the benefit of cost savings from shared resources, but offer protection from the costly legal risks associated with operating an association. An AMC is the employer, so the association is protected from liability when it comes to hiring, firing, and employment grievances.

Professional Growth

AMC’s provide full and part-time employment for executive directors, administrative professionals, meeting planners, accountants, lobbyists, and others.

Tailored Solutions

AMC’s customize their services specifically to the needs of the association. AMC staff gain experience with a variety of associations, they can solve problems and bring creative solutions forward based on what has worked well elsewhere.

Where are AMC's Located?

There are currently over 400 AMC’s in operation around the world.

AMC’s are found in all 50 US states and in over 16 countries worldwide.
