OMG! We achieved AMC Institute re-accreditation (again!)

amci logoOrganization Management Group Inc. is proud to announce that it has been awarded re-accreditation by AMC Institute (AMCI), the global trade association representing the association management company (AMC) industry.

The achievement marks OMG’s fourth re-accreditation.

Among 600-plus association management companies worldwide, only 81 have achieved AMCI Accreditation, demonstrating the commitment and ability to deliver the highest level of professional management services to association and not-for-profit clients. Additionally, OMG is one of only 10 Charter AMCs worldwide.

Administered by AMC Institute, AMC Institute Accreditation is recognized and supported by the American Society of Association Executives and The Center for Association Leadership, and is based on the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Standard of Good Practices for the AMC industry. ANSI requires that the standard be reviewed and updated regularly to remain an approved standard. AMCs must earn re-accreditation every four years, demonstrating to an independent outside auditor that they continue to meet the standard.

“We applaud Organization Management Group 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 Organization Management Group’s ongoing commitment to leadership in association management.”
