Friday, April 22, 2016
(HILLSBOROUGH, NJ, April 22, 2016) – Professional Management Associates 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. These AMCs are the recognized choice of association and not-for-profit organizations.
“We applaud Professional Management Associates 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 PMA’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.
“PMA is honored to remain in the elite group of AMCI accredited companies,” said Heather O’Steen, CAE and Co-Managing Partner of PMA. “This achievement allows us to continue to show current and prospective clients that PMA is committed to providing the highest quality association management services.”
“We are very proud of our AMCI re-accreditation and have to thank our entire staff for being able to maintain the high standards required by AMCI,” said Nancy Furstenburg, CPA, CAE, and Co-Managing Partner of PMA.
