A Day in the Life - Member Services

Parker Allen, AMR Member Services Director

I think it’s safe to say that there is never a dull moment in Member Services. If you ask the AMR Member Services team, I believe they would all mutually agree that they prefer it this way. Each day presents a new set of challenges and opportunities which helps us to play a significant role in the success  and growth of our clients.

Green Initiatives: CD DVD Recycling Best Practices

Hannah Gray, AMR Project Associate

When I started working at AMR, I realized that both AMR and our clients are very aware of their corporate social responsibility. We recycle all our products and try to separate reusable materials from the trash. One item that we came across was a large box of old CDs. I knew they didn’t belong in the garbage, which made me think, what is the best way to recycle CD’s? My first thought was, “of course, the recycling bins we have in the office.” However, I wasn’t 100% sure so I did some research, and what I found was much different than what I had thought.

Will Engle, AMR Director of Conferences and Events

I think most people would tell you, when asked if planning events sounds like it would be a fun line of work, that yes, they think it would be: traveling all over the country and the world, meeting all types of new people, and having the unique opportunity to see first-hand the fruits of your labor borne out. Well, I have a little secret for you… they’re right! But that’s just a small part of what our dynamic team of event managers get to do on a typical day.

In this blog post, AMR, outlines the strategic planning process our consultative team used to uncover trends that associations need to tackle now.

Strategic planning sessions have been a staple in the for-profit and nonprofit arena since the dawn of time. While some question their usefulness -- often referring to their current plan as a ‘document collecting dust on the shelf’ -- others fully embrace the process and use it to guide actions, decisions and work throughout the year. Whichever side of the fence you fall on there’s no denying the presence of plans and planning sessions in a nonprofit’s lifecycle.

Higher Logic Super Forum 2016 Conference - A Review

Olivia Hook, NASCIO Research and Digital Communications Coordinator

I spent the first half of my week at the Higher Logic Super Forum in the D.C. area, and even though I’ve had a few days to decompress everything I learned, my head is still spinning. I attended the HLSF last year with only a few weeks of association management under my belt, so to say I was overwhelmed would be an understatement. Still, I took copious notes, hoping I would glean a clearer understanding about “What is a community, anyway?”
