AMPED Association Management, a full-service association management company with headquarters in Middleton, WI and offices in Metro Washington, DC and Glenwood Springs, CO, has once again been awarded accreditation by AMC Institute, the global trade association representing the association management industry.
The firm has been AMCI accredited since 2011.
Among 500-plus Association Management Companies (AMC) worldwide, only 81 have achieved AMC Institute Accreditation, demonstrating the commitment and the ability to deliver the highest level of professional management services to association and not-for-profit clients. These AMCs are the recognized choice of association and not-for-profit organizations.
“We applaud AMPED on this significant achievement,” AMCI Chair Jeanne Sheehy said. “AMCI accreditation requires that association management firms demonstrate adherence to operational and ethical best practices, as outlined in the AMCI standard. Accreditation distinguishes AMPED’s ongoing commitment to leadership in association management.”
Administered by AMC Institute, AMC Institute Accreditation is recognized and supported by ASAE & The Center for Association Leadership and is based on the ANSI Standard of Good Practices for the AMC Industry. ANSI requires that the standard be reviewed and updated regularly to remain an approved standard. Measurable performance practices include contracts and service delivery; employee recruitment, training and professional development; and financial management and internal controls, among others. AMCs must earn re-accreditation every four years, demonstrating to an independent outside auditor that they continue to meet the standard.
“AMPED is proud to distinguish itself as one of a select group of firms that have achieved the prestigious AMC Institute accreditation,” said AMPED Owner and President Lynda J. Patterson, FASAE, CAE. “Our team demonstrates, every day, the highest level of professionalism and responsibility, while consistently meeting and exceeding all industry standards, yet infusing innovation and new ideas regularly.”
