Alta provides full-service management to nonprofit trade and professional associations.

With our formalized business processes—combined with our hands-on customer service and member relations–we’ve been able to help our client associations become more financially stable while growing their membership.


It was during my presidency that we hired Alta Management Services for full service management of our association. Since then, we have reached record membership levels, have more political influence, and more profitable events and programs. I recommend Alta Management Services to any association.
— John Kroll, Past President of the Greater Philadelphia Hotel Association and President of Keating Hospitality
