Association Management Companies Are Your Nonprofit's Path To Success
The Association of Fundraising Professionals Greater Philadelphia Chapter has selected the Association & Conference Group of Leesburg, Virginia, for full-service management.
It’s the AMC’s second win in a month.
The association’s request for proposals was distributed on AMC Institute’s Online RFP System.
AMC Advantage had code-named this opportunity “Snowy Diamond.” The full proposal is viewable on the AMC Institute website to members in good standing only. You must be signed into view the RFPs.
Six AMCs applied for the opportunity, three were short-listed, and two were interviewed, said Margaret King, the association’s finance committee chair. ACG was selected because it is “technology savvy, they keep their expenses low so that they can pass on the savings to their clients, they were open and honest in the interview,” she said.
King said the association promoted the RFP through the AMC Institute’s RFP system, tweeted about it, and “directly contacted several management companies that we independently researched.”
“We are glad we did it,” she said. “It was a long process, but worth it in the end. It is not for the faint of heart.”
The Association of Fundraising Professionals represents nearly 31,000 members in more than 200 chapters throughout the world, working to advance philanthropy through advocacy, research, education, and certification programs.
The Greater Philadelphia Chapter, with 500 members, was established in 1968 and is one of the largest AFP chapters in North America.
