Association Management Company Accreditations

Many associations outsource day to day operations to an association management company. This allows the association to receive support from a professional management team of executive directors, meeting planners, membership coordinators and accountants. Since they are sharing the cost of these services with other associations, they can get the job done for a very reasonable cost. Barnes, Givens & Barnes, Ltd. performs reviews of association management companies as part of the AMC accreditation and re-accreditation process.
