Why Partner with an Association Management Company (AMC)?

When associations across an AMC's client base share resources, they enjoy the best of both worlds – a wide range of expertise and rapid scalability as the environment dictates – characteristics not often present for non-AMC managed associations. Threatened by economic uncertainty, many associations in the United States are being forced to re-evaluate their financial stability, efficiency, and future outlooks. Faced with financial pressures and staffing challenges, associations are increasingly hiring professional Association Management Companies (AMCs), businesses that provide professional management to non-profit organizations. The AMC Institute noted that half the AMCs surveyed witnessed an increase in Requests for Proposals (RFPs) in the six months prior to its industry research.

We have staff of 10 people in client services, creative, media and finance to deliver full service solutions.

If your organization stores publications or logo merchandise, Briget has adequate storage space. You not only have staff to perform day-to-day services, but also to handle the crunch times--dues billing, annual conference, legislative alerts, and publications.Here you find sufficient depth so that if a key staff member is ill or otherwise unavailable, the business of your organization goes on!

Typical fees for full operational support staff and Executive Director will be in the range of 40% to 50% of your association's operational budget. Consider what you currently outlay for all of your staff hours, rent, and overhead, and you can see why studies have shown cost savings to be significant!

Governance......

Compared to other organizations, is yours large or small? Rapidly growing or in need of a turnaround? What are its priorities in terms of programs--trade shows or e-trade, government affairs or publications, membership development or financial services, or some combination? Briget helps conduct orientation programs for new directors so they will understand how the association operates, its strategic plan, and the nature of the contract or operating policies that define Briget's relationship with the association. Each new slate of elected leaders needs a clear understanding of the parliamentary rules of procedure, and of governance policies that guide the organization. relationship between the management firm and the association.
