An AMC like ours is generally most useful for societies or associations who have either, 1) been self-managed by their board of directors and volunteers and who have found that the tasks of running the organization have become too time-consuming, 2) decided that they need more experienced management assistance, but aren't in a position to hire their own staff or 3) have been with a previous management company, but feel the need for a change. If that sounds like you, find out more on our Services page or submit a Request for Proposal.
