Do you need a hired gun? When professional association management makes sense
Abstract: If a nonprofit needs help getting off the ground, or can’t afford to hire more staff to support its growth, an association management company (AMC) and its turnkey infrastructure might be the answer. This article shows how not-for-profits can rely on the AMC for recruitment, employee benefits packages, training and the other time-consuming tasks that normal growth entails. It discusses how to assess one’s needs and to evaluate AMC candidates. A sidebar lists some of the specific types of services that an AMC can provide.
