What Is an Association Management Company (AMC)?

The American Association of Association Executives (ASAE) defines an association management company (AMC) as:

An association management company (AMC) is a professional service company that specializes in providing management services for associations on a fee-for-service basis. AMCs provide the professional staff, administrative support, office space, technology, and equipment an association needs to operate efficiently. An association management company typically manages several associations from one company location, providing a wide range of benefits including shared technology systems, access to expert specialized staff, and shared purchasing power.

The association management company industry is more than 110 years old. Today, there are over 600 AMCs worldwide that collectively manage associations ranging in budget size from $50,000 to $16 million and representing more than 3 million members. Regardless of the size, industry, and membership type of your association, there is likely an AMC that has experience with an organization like yours.
