Impact Association Management: Achieves AMC Institute accreditation

[Madison, WI]: Impact Association Management announced it has recently been awarded accreditation by AMC Institute, the global trade association representing the Association Management industry. 

“We applaud Impact Association Management on this significant achievement,” AMC Institute Chair, Mark Engle, said. “AMC Institute accreditation requires that association management firms demonstrate adherence to operational and ethical best practices, as outlined in the AMC Institute Standard. Accreditation distinguishes Impact’s ongoing commitment to leadership in association management.” 

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. 

“This is an incredible accomplishment for the entire Impact team,” said Jodi Fisher, Impact’s CEO and Founder. “We have always held ourselves to the highest standard, but it’s great that we can now point to our AMCI Accreditation as evidence that we lead our team with a commitment to quality and accountability.” 

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. 

“The time and effort our team put into achieving Accreditation is evidence in itself of our dedication to upholding the highest standard of practice,” said Kirsten Reader, Impact’s Chief Operations Officer. “I’m very proud of the Impact team and look forward to sharing our earned knowledge and expertise with Impact’s clients.” 

Impact is a client-focused association management company dedicated to helping small to medium-sized associations improve their operations and achieve their strategic goal. Impact’s customized, partnership approach requires both their team of association management professionals and their clients to show strong dedication to the success of the associations they work with. 

Association Management Companies specialize in managing associations and non-profit organizations, providing leadership and professional management services through experienced staff, best practices and shared resources. As AMCs manage multiple association and non-profit clients, their experience and knowledge base are broad and substantial, positioning AMCs as the preferred choice for full-service and specialized management services.
