Phoenix-Based SOS-Association Management Solutions Achieves AMC Institute Re-Accreditation

SOS-Association Management Solutions announced that it has recently received re-accreditation by AMC Institute, the global trade association representing the Association Management industry.

Among 500-plus Association Management Companies worldwide, only 82 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 SOS-Association Management Solutions on this significant achievement,” AMCI Chair Greg Schultz said. “AMCI accreditation requires that association management firms demonstrate adherence to operational and ethical best practices, as outlined in the AMCI ANSI standard. Re-accreditation distinguishes SOS’s ongoing commitment to leadership in association management.”

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. Once accredited, AMCs must earn re-accreditation every four years, demonstrating to an independent outside auditor that they continue to meet the standard.

“We are pleased to be recognized by the AMC Institute for our practices that meet the highest standards of excellence in association management,” said Conni Ingallina, president of SOS-Association Management Solutions. “We service a broad range of trade, professional and nonprofit associations. Our team is committed to advancing the brand and mission of each of our clients.”
