Association Management Companies, or AMCs, are for-profit businesses that manage associations to help them grow and prosper. They offer the expertise, staffing and resources that allow professional associations, trade groups, not-for-profits and philanthropic organizations to effectively manage day-to-day operations and advance their long-term goals.
A career with an association management company offers you the opportunity to manage your career path in a fast paced, hands-on, results-oriented environment. Check out some industry stats and facts:
AMS is fully accredited by the AMC Institute, a non-profit trade organization focused on advancing professionalism and high industry standards for association management companies.
