SANTA CRUZ, Calif. (CitizenWire) — BTF Enterprises, an association management company, announced that it has recently been awarded accreditation by AMC Institute, the global trade association representing the Association Management industry.
Among 500-plus Association Management Companies (AMC) worldwide, fewer than 50 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 to provide leadership and professional management services through experienced staff, best practices and shared resources.
“We congratulate BTF Enterprises for achieving AMC Institute Accreditation,” stated AMC Institute Board President, John Dee. “The accreditation evaluation is the most demanding and comprehensive in our industry. Clients of accredited AMCs should feel assured that this exclusive group operates with the highest level of professionalism and responsibility, and consistently meets or exceeds all industry requirements.”
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. BTF Enterprises are members of the two foremost association management associations – American Society of Association Executives (ASAE) since 1991 and AMC Institute (AMCI) since 1993.
BTF Enterprises under took the accreditation program as a voluntary process. This process requires written documentation and an independent review verifying that BTF Enterprises meets or exceeds the Standard’s requirements for accounting procedures, appropriate contract review and transition procedures, appropriate and adequate insurance coverage, written record keeping procedures, and proper employee recruitment and training programs. AMCs must earn re-accreditation every four years, demonstrating to an independent outside auditor that they continue to meet the standard.
