What is an Association Management Company?
Association management companies (AMCs) are highly qualified and experienced teams that can be hired by an association's board of directors to manage day-to-day operations and bring strategic initiatives to life. When a board signs a management agreement with an AMC, such as Holland-Parlette Associates, it gains a dedicated staff and office headquarters, often at a fraction of cost of a traditional stand-alone operation. Most importantly, it gains a team that provides reliable support, accountability, and operational consistency that can lead to greater financial stability and membership growth.
Most professional and trade associations have a myriad of strategic needs, goals and objectives, and Holland-Parlette Associates, Inc. (HPA) has the experience and credentials to help you meet even your most complex requirements.
