Partnership and collaboration

The partnership begins and ends with trust and open communication.

Integrated Management Clients

AMPED has created a niche in what we call "integrated management." Different from full service association management (even those with just an “outside CEO" or executive director), integrated management offers a solution for stand-alone associations wanting reliable staff on their organizational chart, coming in well-trained and driving results.

Both CSI and ACFAS had strong staff teams, but needed some extra help and expertise — not merely a one-off job — fully integrated into their staff and culture, appearing to the members and outside world as association staff. AMPED delivered that and more as part of our integrated management offerings.
