AML exists to provide solutions that unleash the potential of our clientsí organizations, members and leaders.

We know that associations have busy volunteer leaders who struggle to dedicate time to their professional organization while continuing to advance their careers. AML works exclusively with Boards of Directors who donít want the challenges of having their own association office, unnecessary overhead costs, computer equipment updates, performing day-to-day operations and staffing issues.

We also know that there are paid Executive Directors with their own association office and staff team, who may want to outsource a portion of their associationís services (financial management, meeting planning, etc.). AML works with those associations to determine solutions that reduce time and stress at their office and fit into their associationís budget.

Research Quantifies Strong Association Management Company Performance for Associations

Newly-released research from the AMC Institute, that was conducted by an independent researcher, confirms the immense value Association Management Companies (AMCs) bring to their clients. A study of 167 associations shows that AMCs deliver 317 percent more growth in net assets and 31 percent more growth in net revenue, as well as offering consistently higher income from products and services.
The study was conducted by Dr. James Gaskin of Brigham Young University and drew data from a random selection of associations with a 501(c)(3) or 501(c)(6) tax status and budgets between $500,000 and $7.5 million. In a statement for the media, Dr. Gaskin said, “Given the wide variety of associations surveyed, and the random sampling applied, the findings are remarkably consistent. When we analyzed the data, it was clear that AMC-managed associations of all sizes tend to be the strongest financially.”
