LEXINGTON, Ky. (July 16, 2018) — AMR is proud to announce that it has been reaccredited by AMC Institute (AMCI), 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 AMR on this significant achievement,” AMCI Chair Michael Payne said. “AMCI accreditation requires that association management firms demonstrate adherence to operational and ethical best practices, as outlined in the AMCI standard. Accreditation distinguishes AMR’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.
“AMR has always valued accreditation, being amongst the first five companies ever to achieve accreditation through the program in 2002,” noted Nick Ruffin, AMR President and CEO. “The AMCI accreditation logo lets our current, and future, client-partners know just how seriously we take our job and the level of expertise we’ll bring to helping them reach their goals.”
