AMS, Inc. Pledges Support For ASAE’s Research Foundation

Washington, DC – Association Management Strategies, Inc. announced that it has recently become a member of the ASAE Foundation’s Leadership Society. AMS President John Flatley stated, “We are proud to pledge our support for the Foundation’s ongoing mission to promote research, leadership, and innovation, and to advance the careers of association management professionals. “

The ASAE Research Foundation advances knowledge in association management and nonprofit leadership. It sponsors and conducts research in an array of areas, the breadth and depth of which a single trade or professional association would likely not be able to undertake on its own. The Foundation is defined by a balanced and multi-dimensional portfolio and is guided by three hallmarks:

  • Empowering foresight: The Foundation’s research helps professionals navigate the future and build sustainable strategies.
  • Defining effective practices:  The Foundation’s research yields evidence-based practices that inform crucial conversations and decision making.
  • Sustaining association value:  The Foundation’s research amplifies associations’ ability and use of evidence to deliver value to their industries, professions, and the global society at large.

AMS is honored to join the diverse community of associations, businesses, partners, and other organizations invested in the mission of the ASAE Research Foundation. We believe that the values of the Foundation are neatly aligned with our own core values of integrity, excellence and collaboration, and our cultural focus on DEI, professional development, and employee wellness.

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.
