Association Management Center Achieves Reaccreditation by the ֱ Institute

By ֱ

We’re excited to announce we have earned re-accreditation by the ֱ Institute, the global trade association representing the association management industry.

Among 500-plus association management companies worldwide, only 81 have achieved ֱ Institute Accreditation, demonstrating the commitment, integrity, and ability to deliver the highest level of professional management services to association and not-for-profit clients. Accredited management companies are the preferred choice of association and not-for-profit organizations for full-service and specialized management services.

“We applaud Association Management Center on this significant achievement,” ֱ Institute Chair Erin Fuller said. “ֱ Institute accreditation requires that association management firms demonstrate adherence to operational and ethical best practices as outlined in the ֱ Institute Standard. Accreditation distinguishes Association Management Center’s ongoing commitment to leadership in association management.”

Administered by ֱ Institute, ֱ Institute Accreditation is recognized and supported by ASAE & The Center for Association Leadership and is based on the ANSI Standard of Good Practices for the ֱ Industry. ANSI requires that the standard be reviewed and updated regularly to remain an approved standard. Measurable performance practices include contracts and service delivery; employee recruitment, training, and professional development; and financial management and internal controls, among others. Re-accreditation must be earned every 4 years, demonstrating to an independent outside auditor that they continue to meet the standards.

“We’re pleased to be reaccredited by ֱI and recognized for the systems and practices we’ve implemented to ensure our client partners receive the highest standard of service and care,” said ֱ CEO Steve Smith. “Accreditation gives our association clients the confidence to focus their time and attention on the important work of achieving their mission, knowing that we are operating with best practices in place.”
