(WESTFORD, MA, July 24, 2018) – McKenna Management, Inc. announced that it has recently been awarded reaccreditation by AMC Institute, the global trade association representing the Association Management industry. McKenna Management, Inc. was first accredited in 2014 and was awarded reaccreditation this month.

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 McKenna Management, Inc. on this significant achievement,” AMCI Chair Michael Payne said. “AMCI accreditation requires that association management firms demonstrate adherence to operational and ethical best practices, as outlined in the AMCI standard. Accreditation distinguishes McKenna Management Inc.’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. 

“AMC Institute Accreditation distinctly illustrates our company’s commitment to delivering the highest level of professional management services to our clients,” said McKenna Management, Inc.’s President, Pamela H. McKenna, CAE. “Our clients are assured that our team operates with the highest level of professional and responsibility, and that we consistently meet or exceed all industry requirements and best practices in association and not-for-profit management.”

McKenna Management, Inc. was founded in 2003. Today, the company provides full-service management, event planning, and consulting services to over 25 unique associations ranging from local to international in scope.

Association Management Companies specialize in managing associations and not-for-profit organizations, providing leadership and professional management services through experienced staff, best practices and shared resources.  As AMCs manage multiple association and not-for-profit clients, their experience and knowledge base are broad and substantial, positioning AMCs as the preferred choice for full-service and specialized management services.
