Association Management Services


The expression, "You can't have it all," doesn't fit when it comes to association management services provided by IMI Association Executives Inc. When an association retains an experienced and talented AMC, members can anticipate a full range of services, delivered by a professional staff, and pay only for the time and talent required. Each association client has a dedicated executive director with support staff, but an association management company (AMC) insures uninterrupted service at all levels.

As non-profit organizations strive to offer high-level services to their members, made difficult by a shrinking pool of volunteers, the need for an efficient and effective management alternative has become critical. A full-time staff, physical space, office equipment and the associated responsibilities may not be financially feasible.

An AMC is based on the concept of shared resources. Your association can depend on needed staff support, but only when it is needed. Associations enjoy the best of both worlds - the professional expertise of association management specialists, at a fraction of the cost of a full-time staff.

Above all, the identity of the association is maintained with most members never recognizing that the association does not have its own full-time staff.
