Association Acumen Receives Third AMCI Accreditation

December 22, 2015 8:34 am Published by Leave your thoughts

AAAMCIAssociation Acumen was recently re-accredited by the Association Management Company Institute (AMCI). Among 500-plus Association Management Companies (AMCs) worldwide, only 81 have achieved AMCI accreditation (16%), demonstrating the commitment and the ability to deliver the highest level of professional management services to association clients. AMCI is the global trade association for the association management industry.

In order to become re-accredited, Association Acumen had to undergo a stringent evaluation by an independent auditor, who reviewed its operating policies and procedures onsite. Originally accredited in 2008 and then re-accredited in 2011, Association Acumen continues to demonstrate proficiency in areas like client contracts, financial controls, insurance requirements, employee selection, evaluation and training, subcontracting and record keeping requirements. Keeping quality high is mandatory, since AMCs must earn re-accreditation every four years.
