Alta Management Services Achieves AMC Institute Re-accreditation

(PHILADELPHIA, PA, October 9, 2018) – Alta Management Services announced that it has recently been awarded re-accreditation by AMC Institute, the global trade association representing the Association Management industry.

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 Alta Management Services on this significant achievement,” AMCI Chair Michael Payne said. “AMCI accreditation requires that association management firms demonstrate adherence to operational and ethical best practices, as outlined in the AMCI standard. Accreditation distinguishes Alta Management Services’ 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. 

“We strive to provide excellent service to our client/partners and our re-accreditation is one way that we demonstrate our ability to do so,” said Ed Grose, President & CEO of Alta Management Services. “It proves that we continue to keep up with the best practices and standards of the association management industry. I am extremely proud of the hard work that went into receiving this distinction, and of the hard work that our staff does every day on behalf of our client/partners.”
