Karen Popp, President and Co-Founder of WWCDA, and Partner at Sidley Austin, stated, “The partnership with AMS represents a pivotal moment in the evolution of our organization. We look forward to the opportunity to have a team of association management professionals support our leaders and volunteers, and our many activities and initiatives.”

“In moving from virtually an all-volunteer model to an association management solution, WWCDA sought an association management company with the experience to guide them through this transition, stated AMS President John Flatley. He continued, “We’re proud that WWCDA has chosen AMS, and we look forward to working alongside the passionate leaders of this organization.”
