Association Management Companies Are Your Nonprofit's Path To Success
The Product Development and Management Association has selected Ewald Consulting as its association management company beginning Jan. 1, 2018,
The association’s request for proposals was distributed on AMC Institute’s Online RFP System.
Charles Noble, PhD, Vice Chair of PDMA and co-chair of its transition committee, told AMC Advantage that 18 AMCs applied to manage PDMA. Six of those AMCs were short-listed, and three were interviewed.
Ewald was chosen based on its “experience in related industries (and) breadth of talent base,” Noble said.
PDMA’s RFP was publicized primarily through the AMC Online RFP System, he said.
PDMA’s members include product development and management practitioners, academics and service providers in a variety of industries and knowledge areas, including new product process, strategy innovation, market research, tools & metrics, organizational issues and portfolio management.
Since 1976, PDMA is the only organization that focuses on the unique set of integrated activities involved in the full lifecycle of product development and management, including innovation.
