An Association Management Company (AMC) provides management services for associations on a fee-for-service basis. Find out if it's right for you.
The executive director is the chief staff officer of the association, overseeing daily management. The association executives at SBI Management Services possess the requisite education, training, and experience to manage your organization. As a client, you will be assigned an association executive and support team who have the knowledge, skills, and tools to support your organization and its membership. With support from SBI, your leaders can do what they do best - lead.
Board of Directors
A Board of Directors provides guidance to the organization and its executive director. SBI works with your Board by providing services that include:
Committees & Chapters
SBI helps you develop leadership capability within your association's committees and chapters by 1) cultivating and maintaining strong leaders, 2) implementing practices that reflect their leadership styles, 3) ensuring that their decisions comply with the policies and bylaws of your association.
SBI also provides direct support to your committees and chapters. We facilitate in-person and teleconferenced meetings, agenda development, minute-taking, and document control. We also verify that committees and chapters operate in a way consistent with your nonprofit tax status.
When it comes to ethical operations, nonprofits are held to a high standard of conduct. Members and beneficiaries rely on nonprofits to set the right example. The lack of ethical leadership and illegal (or "borderline legal") activities can harm an association's image for years to come and may even result in the revocation of a license. It is critical to understand which side of the law any given action will fall on - especially when operating in "gray areas."
Ethical reviews mandated by your policies are often carried out by committee. SBI is here to help. With our knowledge of best practices in the industry as well as years of experience, SBI association executives can answer your questions about legal issues as well as encourage socially responsible management practices.
