|About Association Resources|
The American Society of Association Executives (ASAE) reports that Americans active in associations devote more than 173 million volunteer hours each year to charitable and community service projects. That time is valued at more than $2 billion. These organizations are run by volunteers. With a professional and dedicated staff as a resource, their potential is boundless.
Association Resources is an association management company (AMC) that has helped organizations in such professions as education, health care, law enforcement business administration, and local environmental associations exceed their potential for membership, meetings, and professional development for a quarter of a century. We're just a phone call or email away to answer any questions you have or provide you with more information. If you currently work with an AMC or are just looking for advice, we are here to help.
Leveraging Your Knowledge with Our Know-how
The culture of associations has changed dramatically in the past two decades. Professional associations are composed of volunteers, most of whom are busy with their own careers, families and businesses with limited capacity to spend on other initiatives. Because of this, it often makes sense to outsource management duties to professional managers, relieving volunteers of burdensome administrative and operational tasks. This gives them the time they need to focus more effectively on their association's goals and strategies while leaving the administrative and day-to-day responsibilities to the experts.
Association Resources offers the combined benefit of an experienced staff coupled with a wide array of services, eliminating the need for you to deal with high overhead, capital expenditures and personnel issues. Your association will also benefit from our shared buying power - ranging from supplies and stationery all the way to hotels, conference services, design solutions, website layout and printing services.
