Getting The AMC Advantage
According to a 2009 study by LoBue and Majdalany Association Management Group, nonprofits managed by Association Management Companies, or AMCs, generate greater operating surpluses, are more efficient, involve lower operating risks, enjoy more diverse revenue profiles, spend more on meetings, trade shows and educational activities, and pay, on average, a third less for the staffing, occupancy and capital costs than sibling standalone organizations. So, has your nonprofit considered being managed by a highly qualified AMC?
In 2015, a study of 167 associations shows that association management companies, or AMCs, deliver 317 percent more growth in net assets and 31 percent more growth in net revenue, as well as offering consistently higher income from products and services. The study was conducted by Dr. James Gaskin of Brigham Young University and drew data from a random selection of associations with a 501(c)(3) or 501(c)(6) tax status and budgets between $500,000 and $7.5 million. AMC Institute sponsored the study. In a statement for the media, Dr. Gaskin said, “Given the wide variety of associations surveyed, and the random sampling applied, the findings are remarkably consistent. When we analyzed the data, it was clear that AMC-managed associations of all sizes tend to be the strongest financially.”
