You’re working hard to grow your trade association but your board is made of volunteers busy with their own businesses.
Maybe you’re paying a professional management company but aren’t seeing a return on investment. Natural turnover on boards often leads to interruptions in strategic plan execution and a lack of consistency. ADS works with non-profits and trade associations to take on the roles of staff or Executive Director.
You probably aren’t interested in the status quo when it comes to your association – if you’re like the many association officers we know, you want to grow the group, increase revenue, enhance member benefits, generate excitement around your events and ensure a legacy after you’ve moved on from the Board. ADS can also bring a more professional look to your communications, marketing and events and maintain consistency in your member relations while pushing to grow revenues, cut expenses and create excitement in your market.
ADS offers a full suite of services for associations, including:
- Event Planning
- Membership Management & Growth
- Website Development & Maintenance
- E-mail Marketing & Communications
- Board Development/Management & BOD Meetings
- Budgeting, Planning & Financial Reporting
- Annual Reports
ADS also has strategic partners who provide:
- Legal Services
- Tax Preparation
- Lobbying Services
The ADS difference is this:
we will treat your members as if they were our clients. We deliver personal, prompt service to all our association clients and their members and we take the time to really understand your industry, your members and your goals. We want you to be “wowed” by our service, our work and most importantly, the results that we deliver to you.
One of our Association Clients said: “The most valuable thing that ADS has done for us is to bring in new ideas and re-energizing members with new events and getting members to be more active. All this while maintaining low receivables and bringing a great energy and work ethic to our organization.”
