An association management company (AMC) is generally a for-profit business comprised of professionals from various specialties (nonprofit management, event management, communications, accounting, etc.) that provides management services to volunteer associations on a fee-for-service basis. The AMC provides the staff, administrative support, office space, technology, and equipment that an association needs for their day-to-day operations. The AMC staff serves as the association's staff, helping to develop and execute the strategies and programs to serve their membership.
The knowledgeable professional individuals that comprise an AMC are passionate about championing the principles, values and mission of the associations they serve.
