LEXINGTON, Ky. (August 28, 2023) — Nick Ruffin, CAE, President and CEO of Lexington-based AMR Management Services (AMR), has been elected chairman of the AMC Institute (AMCI) Board of Directors. Ruffin’s term will begin January 1, 2024, with a formal introduction at the AMCI Annual Meeting (Feb. 14-16) at the MGM Mandalay Bay Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada.


Founded in 1963, AMCI is a national, nonprofit trade organization focused on advancing professionalism and high industry standards for association management companies. AMR is one of nearly 200 member firms.

Association management companies like AMR specialize in managing associations and nonprofit 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.

Ruffin has been involved in the AMCI since 2008 and has served on the AMCI board for nearly ten years, including previous terms as a Director, Secretary, Treasurer and Chair-Elect, as well as serving on several committees and task forces. He will chair a 12-member Board of Directors representing the leading firms from the association management company community as well as key industry partners.

“As a long-time member, I understand the value AMCI brings,” said Ruffin. “The opportunity to lead the institute at such a critical and transformative time for our industry is a great honor. I look forward to working with an outstanding board to help our industry continue to thrive.”
