Association Management Companies Are Your Nonprofit's Path To Success
St. Louis-based Q&A Business Solutions recently was selected to manage two associations: Kansas Council of Health-System Pharmacy and Missouri Society of Health-System Pharmacists.
The Missouri Society of Health-System Pharmacists received bids from nine management companies and short-listed (and interviewed) four companies before making its selection, which was based on “location, experience (specifically similar organizations), interview, and cost,” said Andrew J. Smith of the association.
“Overall the process when pretty smooth,” Smith told AMC Advantage. ” We had a lot of support from our national organization in terms of previous management company search experience as well as legal oversight with contract negotiations.”
The Missouri Society of Health System Pharmacists has been a voice for hospital pharmacists since the early 1970s. The Society has had an emphasis on providing educational programming, developing guidelines for hospital pharmacy practice and promoting medication safety across the state.
The Kansas Council of Health-System Pharmacists is a state organization of health-systems supporters committed to advancing public health by promoting the safe and appropriate use of drug therapy through professional advocacy, influential organizational affiliations and educational development of all health-systems pharmacy personnel.
