Association Management Companies Are Your Nonprofit's Path To Success
NASBITE International says it received 12 applications for full-service association management and short-listed three before its 2016 selection of Baltimore, Maryland-based Stringfellow Management Group.
NASBITE, also known as the National Association of Small Business International Trade Educators, favored Stringfellow for its “(o)verall strength of the management team; strength and experience of the proposed exec director; budget proposal; prior experience of the company; overall philosophy of growing association,” said James F. Foley, a volunteer leader and director, Turner Center for Entrepreneurship in Peoria, Illinois.
“I was very impressed with the quality and detail provided by the applications we received through AMC Institute,” Foley told AMC Advantage. “This was the first time we went with a professional association management company so we were concerned how it would go. It was very smooth. Having a time frame in which questions could be asked, and then anonymously shared was an important part of the process. All went great!”
NASBITE coordinates and administers the Certified Global Business Professional (CGBP) credential.
