FOREST HILL, MD, August 10, 2016 – Stringfellow Management Group, Inc. (SMG) has 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 Stringfellow Management 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 SMG'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.
"Maintaining our Accreditation through AMC Institute is important to me, and the entire SMG staff," stated Fred Stringfellow, CAE, SMG's President. "We know how high our performance standards are, and our clients have confidence in SMG's ability to deliver. The AMC Institute Accreditation provides that extra level of confidence to someone who may be working with us for the first time."
SMG provides headquarters operations, professional management services, specialized financial management, and conference coordination to non-profit associations and foundations.
