Amplify Achieves Fourth AMC Institute Accreditation

Author: Easton Kuboushek, MPA

ANKENY, Iowa ­­— Amplify Association Management has recently been awarded re-accreditation by AMC Institute representing more than a decade of association management industry best practices.

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 organizations. Amplify is recognized among the top AMCs since earning the original credential in 2009.

“The AMC Institute Accreditation is a reflection of our team’s continued commitment to excellence,” says Kirk Leeds, Amplify President and CEO. “This important distinction sets the foundation of our partnerships and allows Amplify to focus on specialized strategy and service for each association.”

Administered by AMC Institute, the global trade association representing the association management industry, 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. Amplify’s AMC Institute Accreditation process will be completed again in 2024.

“We applaud Amplify on this significant achievement,” AMCI Chair Bennett Napier said. “AMCI accreditation requires that association management firms demonstrate adherence to operational and ethical best practices, as outlined in the AMCI standard. Accreditation distinguishes Amplify’s ongoing commitment to leadership in association management.”
