Achieving Your Goals with a Personal Touch

About AMS

With integrity, excellence and collaboration as its core values, Association Management Strategies, Inc. (AMS) was founded in 2007 by John Flatley, a Capitol Hill and trade association veteran.  With early key strategic hires, AMS built a foundation providing the staffing and resources of a traditional association management company, with expertise in the public policy arena.

Today, from our headquarters in the heart of Washington, DC, AMS provides comprehensive and specialized services to a diverse set of client partners.

Building genuine, strong partnerships has always been at the center AMS’s corporate culture. We have found our greatest success in matching our client partners with a team drawn from our pool of talented association professionals to meet the unique needs of each organization. As AMS has grown, we have enhanced our offerings by recruiting key expertise in the areas of Human Resource, Finance and Operations. This has allowed AMS to broaden the scope of services it provides our clients.

AMS’s measurable expansion over the past decade is a direct result of the relationships we have built with each of our clients and our ability to understand their industry-specific needs. We look forward to hearing from you on how the AMS team can help drive the vision, growth and direction of your organization.
