It’s time to contact Expert Management Services when:

  • Your association has experienced staff turnover and the board has become tired of dealing with personnel issues rather than furthering the mission of the organization.
  • You want to take your association to the next level of growth or professionalism.
  • You want a consistent headquartered team of association professionals plus experts assigned on an as-needed basis for designated projects all for significantly less than the cost to hire full time staff.
  • You understand that the volunteers are leaders in their industry or profession and that the management of an exempt organization requires a body of knowledge, experience and expertise that the volunteers do not possess.
  • You are an Executive Director of an association and find you cannot be an effective staff specialist in all function areas. Tired of going it alone, you want experienced, hit-the-ground-running help!
  • You are finding it more and more difficult to recruit volunteers for the day-to-day management and administration of the association’s programs and services.
  • Your members and prospective members expect continuity and consistency of association operations, staff and identity as the volunteer leaders change.
  • You have discovered that maintaining a full-time staff, office space and state-of-the-art technology is neither cost effective nor cost efficient for your association.
  • You want to tap into many years of successful association experience to build and energize your association’s programs, membership, revenue sources and member services.
  • Your association is working just fine “except for…” and you need to outsource communications, technology services, meetings, seminars, conference or exhibit management or any other key component of your organization’s business operations.
  • Your association has grown beyond the ability of the volunteer leaders to manage the day-to-day details. For example, the treasurer wants to be more fiscally proactive rather than paying the bills, the membership chair wants to recruit new members rather than maintain the database, the conference chair wants to identify trends and member needs and not to worry about menus. Hiring EMS allows leaders and volunteers to focus on the organizational policies and mission to achieve its goals.
