Apex is an Association Management Company

While some associations hire staff to run the organization, others choose to hire an Association Management Company (AMC) to handle day-to-day operations. AMCs provide professional management and services including board administration, membership development, conference/events management, communications, finance and government relations to associations.

Association Management Companies provide necessary resources to enable associations to run effectively and efficiently.  AMCs may vary in size and functionality but they all have the common goal to provide quality services to associations.  There are AMCs that provide full service association management as well as others that provide outsourced management optioons. Apex can do either.

Top 10 Reasons to Partner with an Association Management Company

  1. AMCs serve as headquarters — staff, files and history all live in one place.

  2. Free your Board to focus on strategic direction, rather than tactical issues.

  3. Remain in the know with a strong base of institutional knowledge.

  4.  Stop losing sleep over liability issues.

  5.  Experts and skilled specialists in a variety of functional areas.

  6. Access the latest technological advances, without all the associated costs.

  7. Retain skilled staff members that align with your organization's needs.

  8. Stay on top of the latest trends in the association industry.

  9. Enjoy enhanced leverage with outside vendors and increased buying power.

  10. Say goodbye to HR headaches for good.

As a management company first, Apex works on project opportunities only if we feel we have particular strength in that area.
