MILWAUKEE, WI, June 16, 2021 –– Association Resource Center, Inc. (ARC) announced that it has recently been awarded reaccreditation by AMC Institute, the global trade association representing the Association Management industry.

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. ARC was initially awarded accreditation by AMC Institute in 2013.

“We applaud Association Resource Center, Inc. on this significant achievement,” AMC Institute Chair Erin Fuller said. “AMC Institute accreditation requires that association management firms demonstrate adherence to operational and ethical best practices, as outlined in the AMC Institute Standard. Accreditation distinguishes ARC’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. 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.

“The Accreditation process provides staff clear understanding of the information, access, support, and resources available to them,” Jennifer Rzepka, ARC President, said. “The process serves as the necessary framework for ARC to effectively uphold the expectations that we have between our company and our clients in accordance with the recognized ANSI Standard. The detailed level of work that goes into the Accreditation process makes it possible for all of us to confidently fulfill our company mission every day: empowering dynamic associations to succeed!”
