Svinicki Association Management, Inc. Receives AMC Institute Reaccreditation

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 Svinicki Association Management, Inc. on this significant achievement,” AMCI Chair Fred Stringfellow said. “AMCI re-accreditation requires that association management firms demonstrate adherence to operational and ethical best practices, as outlined in the AMCI ANSI standard. Re-accreditation distinguishes SAMI’s 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.  

“I am excited to announce that Svinicki Association Management, Inc. has been reaccredited by the AMC Institute. Accreditation demonstrates that SAMI adheres to the highest standards in providing services to our clients. Many thanks to our clients and staff for their help in achieving this designation,” said SAMI President and Founder, Jane Svinicki, CAE.
