Association Management Companies Are Your Nonprofit's Path To Success
The Association of Workplace Investigators has contracted with SBI Management Services of Seattle to manage AWI’s operations, beginning March 31, 2015, according to an AWI news release.
AWI made the move from a small stand-alone staff to a moderately-sized AMC because the growth in AWI’s membership and programs has exceeded both the capacity of AWI’s staff, and AWI’s capacity to grow its staff quickly enough to accommodate such growth. AWI will retain its part-time Executive Director, Stephen P. Angelides, JD, MPP, CAE, who will handle strategic initiatives while SBI handles operations.
Such arrangements are usually referred to as “COO Down” because the CEO stays on while the AMC acts as COO and staff.
