Each volunteer only has five metaphorical fingers – each of them representing the core of their life: themselves, family, spouse and/or friends, career, a religious, school or personal organization, and a professional association to maintain their career.
Many people overextend themselves and the pinky finger, the shortest of them all, represents their volunteer work. Over the past 8-10 years, that volunteer time has diminished more. As companies have cut back on staff, people have found themselves inundated with more work than ever before, and have had to sacrifice outside activities.
That’s where we come in. The AMI Team provides you with the support to manage the operations of the association while not overburdening your volunteers. We can provide this service on a full or project-specific basis.
Association Matters, Inc. becomes a willing partner with you to provide full-service management or project-specific services including board, financial, event, member, sponsor and communications management. Contact us to discuss how we can help you.
This is our day job which leaves you, your leadership team and your volunteers more time to focus on your day job.
If you’re not ready to take the leap to a partnership with an association management company, then explore the value we offer through our consulting opportunities. From volunteer engagement to membership analysis, system migration to event coordination, and sponsorship review to board orientation, tap into the expertise of the AMI Team.
The AMI Team utilizes a collaborative approach to elevate your association to the next level. Each member of the team has the motivation, resources, drive and dedication to the premise that together, we can achieve your true potential.
We have in-depth experience with system migrations to the Wild Apricot system. While this system may not be suited for everyone, its unleashed power will greatly add efficiency to the core services of your association. In addition, our team has worked with other member management and communication systems including: Member Clicks, netForum, Cvent, Affiniscape [now YourMembership] and Constant Contact.
For the good of the association, it’s imperative that directors, new and existing, completely understand their fiduciary responsibility and the extent of their authority. It’s unfortunate, but for close to two decades, we’ve been called to review the actions of directors, deal with conflicts of interest and, where necessary and appropriate, initiate the removal of individuals from the Board of Directors.
