AMC Source Achieves AMC Institute Accreditation

Updated: May 21, 2021


Fort Lauderdale, FL, March 24, 2021 – AMC Source announced it has recently been awarded accreditation by the 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 AMC Source on this significant achievement,” AMC Institute Chair Erin Fuller 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 AMC Source’s ongoing commitment to leadership in association management.”

Administered by the 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.

"What makes accreditation most meaningful is the dedication and collaboration of our world-class team of professionals. This includes our lead, Dr. Ilene Magee, and our AMC Institute peer study group,” said Gregory Brooks, AMC Source Co-President. According to Brooks, “The entire process has helped us ensure the highest level of quality control and client satisfaction. We are grateful for this opportunity and look forward to the bright future of the AMC global community and the associations we serve." Co-President Debra S. Nolan, CAE, IOM, echoed Brooks’ statement, noting sincere appreciation for the AMC Source team and each member’s contribution to this achievement.
