The Value of an AMC

Posted by Joseph Sapp on Mar 14, 2019 5:40:18 PM

I recently moderated a webinar session for the American Society of Association Executives (ASAE) and its Association Management Company Section Council. The session included three panelists, all who are association management company (AMC) owners. The goal of our session was to have an open discussion about the value an AMC brings to the associations it represents. It was an engaging session and one that I think can be continued through ongoing discussions as we consistently evolve as an industry and find new ways to improve our ability to service and impact associations. To kick-off a follow-up conversation on this topic, I had additional thoughts on the value of an AMC based on my personal experience within the industry and with Talley Management Group (TMG).

Then and Now: Career Advice to My Younger Self

Posted by Joseph Sapp on Oct 10, 2018 2:24:31 PM

As I have moved through the association management industry, I have had the opportunity to work in various roles and with a wide range of industries. When I first began my career, I was working on one association only, serving as a community liaison for a very active online membership. As I progressed through my career, I had more opportunities to engage with other associations. The opportunity to engage with other associations was what solidified my desire to make this a career. It also showed me the quickest path to gaining the skills and knowledge to advance within the association management industry.

Managing the American Registry for Migraine Research: How picking up the phone rather than sending an email has made a difference in just a few months

Posted by Anna Quinn, MPH, RYT on Sep 4, 2018 11:38:02 AM

When I started my position as the American Registry for Migraine Research Administrator for Talley Management, Inc.’s (TMG) client partner American Headache Society (AHS), I started reviewing AHS’s site evaluation, a beginning point for my work as the new administrator for our registry. This informal evaluation helped me understand what was happening at each of the sites on the ground while also allowing me to immediately work with each site’s team to troubleshoot or provide feedback. The biggest change from the typical introduction and evaluation with my process? I connected directly with the site’s team rather than just sending an email that, unfortunately, would most likely be deleted.
