Organization Management Group Inc. has been awarded re-accreditation by AMC Institute, the global trade association representing the association management company industry. The achievement marks OMG’s third re-accreditation. The Chesapeake-based firm, with offices in Richmond, is a Charter Accredited AMC, or association management company, and is one of only 11 Charter AMCs.
Among 500-plus association management companies worldwide, only 85 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 congratulate Organization Management Group for achieving AMC Institute Re-Accreditation,” said AMC Institute Board President Charles T. Hall Jr. “The accreditation evaluation is the most demanding and comprehensive in our industry. Clients of accredited AMCs should feel assured that this exclusive group operates with the highest level of professionalism and responsibility, and consistently meets or exceeds all industry requirements.”
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. 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.
“OMG takes great pride in its Accreditation. OMG always strives to be the very best, to deliver the very best services, to hire the very best people, to follow the very best association-management practices and to generate the very best results for our clients,” said OMG President J. Michael Reitelbach, CAE RCE IOM. “OMG’s expertise, capabilities and methods can benefit any association in any industry.
