ASSOCIATION SERVICES GROUP ACHIEVES AMC INSTITUTE RE-ACCREDITATION
(LaGrange, GA, May 4, 2016) – Association Services Group (ASG) announced that it has recently been awarded re-accreditation by AMC Institute, the global trade association representing the Association Management industry.
Among 500-plus Association Management Companies (AMC) worldwide, only 81 have achieved AMC Institute Accreditation, demonstrating the commitment and the ability to deliver the highest level of professional management services to association and not-for-profit clients. ASG is the only accredited AMC headquartered in Georgia. These AMCs are the recognized choice of association and not-for-profit organizations.
“We applaud Association Services Group on this significant achievement,” AMCI Chair Greg Schultz said. “AMCI re-accreditation requires that association management firms demonstrate adherence to operational and ethical best practices, as outlined in the AMCI ANSI standard. Re-accreditation distinguishes ASG’s ongoing commitment to leadership in association management.”
Administered by AMC Institute, AMC Institute Accreditation is recognized and supported by ASAE & The Center for Association Leadership and is based on the ANSI Standard of Good Practices for the AMC Industry. ANSI requires that the standard be reviewed and updated regularly to remain an approved standard. Measurable performance practices include contracts and service delivery; employee recruitment, training and professional development; and financial management and internal controls, among others. AMCs must earn re-accreditation every four years, demonstrating to an independent outside auditor that they continue to meet the standard.
“We are proud to receive this accreditation for the third time since ASG was established 20 years ago,” said Charles Hall, ASG Founder and Chief Executive Officer. Hall said Association Services Group was also accredited by the ASAE before the certification process was combined with AMC Institute. “This recognition reinforces that our team works hard to maintain the highest standards of customer service and integrity among the office, and that is something to be excited about.”
Association Services Group is headquartered in LaGrange, Georgia and also has offices in Atlanta. ASG currently services more than a dozen clients with approximately 30 staff members. Read more about Association Services Group by visiting www.associationservicesgroup.net.
Association Management Companies specialize in managing associations and not-for-profit organizations, providing leadership and professional management services through experienced staff, best practices and shared resources. As AMCs manage multiple association and not-for-profit clients, their experience and knowledge base are broad and substantial, positioning AMCs as the preferred choice for full-service and specialized management services.
