If your organization does not need, or cannot afford, full management services – outsourcing may be the solution. Outsourcing allows an association management company (AMC) to perform a specific task, function or project more efficiently or cost-effectively for you.
Consider outsourcing when:
The task is outside your expertise.
The function is time-consuming, difficult to manage or is not producing the desired results.
You need to reduce and control operating costs.
Fresh ideas or a different perspective is needed, in order to generate desired results.
Expertise is needed for a project or program to complement current staff’s skills.
You need someone to fill in during transitions or absences.
