Among 500-plus association management companies (AMC) worldwide, AMR is one of only 19 AMCs to receive the charter accredited designation. Accreditation demonstrates AMR’s commitment and ability to deliver the highest level of professional management services to association and not-for-profit clients. In 2002, AMR was one of the first five firms to achieve this designation and has achieved reaccreditation every four years thereafter.

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

The AMCI accreditation program is recognized and supported by ASAE & The Center for Association Leadership and is based on the ANSI Standard of Good Practices for the AMC 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. AMCs must earn re-accreditation every four years, demonstrating to an independent outside auditor that they continue to meet the standard.

“Throughout our 25-year history, AMR has remained committed to continuously enhancing our systems, processes, and staff education to ensure we deliver the highest quality services to our association partners,” said Nick Ruffin, CAE, AMR President and CEO. “Accreditation through the AMCI program demonstrates not only that commitment to quality, but also our focus on evolving and growing as an association management service provider.”

AMR Management Services provides professional services to a variety of local, regional, national and international nonprofit trade associations, professional societies and foundations. Core services include association management, education and events management, financial and membership management, marketing and creative services, and data and technology management. More than 25 national and international organizations rely on AMR for full-service association management expertise.

Association management companies like AMR specialize in managing associations and non-profit organizations, providing leadership and professional management services through experienced staff, best practices and shared resources. As AMCs manage multiple association and non-profit clients, their experience and knowledge base are broad and substantial, positioning AMCs as the preferred choice for full-service and specialized management services.
