The Association Management Company

The Association Management Company is based on strong business and ethical values. Its principals have been providing services to professional and industry associations, foundations and charities for 30 years. 

The Association Management company's principals are members of the Canadian Society of Association Executives (CSAE) and the American Society of Association Executives (ASAE).  True to our calling, we  rely on the experience, education and material guidance of professional associations in all aspects of the management and administration of not for profit, professional associations, societies and charities. 

With the successful track record of its business team, the Association Management company's principals are of the most established of their peers in non-profit management in Canada.  The Association Management Company trains its staff in all areas of management, prides itself on a seamless service and offers key benefits such as:  business continuity, personnel oversight, transparency, strategic direction and organizational efficiency.


Needs Assessments


Many charity and non-profit association Boards of Directors are not clear on the model they would like to adopt for their organizational management and leadership.  Without a defined direction and a focused analysis of expectations, many charities and non-profit corporations fail within the first year of operation.  the Association Management company assists organizations in instituting key initiatives for success.  But most important in this exercise, we support the Board of Directors and stakeholders in establishing clear Core Values, Mission and Vision in order to outline goals and objectives. 

Board and Staff Orientation Sessions

Each year the Board of Directors is advised to include an external Board Orientation Session for current and incoming Board members.  This session is a review of the Guiding Documents of the Association, the Board manual including minutes of meetings, bylaws, strategic planning, policies documents and legislation pertaining to the oversight of the organization. Our team is experienced in the area of governance of non-profit associations and is in step with risk management and best practices in the organizational responsibilities of non-profit Boards of Directors. 

In guiding Boards in the use of the Carver model of Policy Board Governance, the Association Management company helps organizations avoid risk and supports the strategic direction of Board leadership and operations.

Organizational Reviews

Are you operating in a fiscally responsible way? Are your processes effective? Do you make the most of the resources and processes available to you? Is your technology adequate and effective?

An Organizational Review would reveal any shortfalls and provide recommendations for improvement to systems and processes.  It would also provide a benchmark for your association in relation to other associations.

Interim Executive Director Services

Do you have a position to fill but require someone right now to step in and manage your association in the interim?

We have over 25 years of experience in senior management positions in the not-for-profit sector for charities, professional and trade associations.  Should you require assistance at any time, we are available to step in and assist while you conduct a formal search for a new Executive Director or Senior Staff Officer or while you take time to decide how you wish to staff your organization.
