Full-Service Management and Administrative Services

Suzanne N. Wells, MSN, RN, Immediate Past President
American Academy of Ambulatory Care Nursing

Associations benefit from full-service management by an AMC. As the corporate headquarters for an association, AJJ provides day-to-day administration, operations, executive management, board and volunteer development, membership services, database management, web services, and financial services.

An association is led by an Executive Director who oversees the association team. Our Pitman, NJ, office serves as the association’s national office and includes office space, mail, phone, fax, email, and Internet access.

The Executive Director and association team develop and monitor all association systems, policies, processes, and communications, reporting directly to the Board of Directors.

Among their many duties, AJJ association staff members:

  • Provide first line customer service to members, potential members, and customers.
  • Work directly with boards of directors, task forces, special interest groups, and other volunteer leaders.
  • Serve as staff liaisons to committees and task forces.
  • Assure efficient management of staff and resources.
  • Develop budgets and monitor revenues and expenses.
  • Assist with strategic planning and implementation.
  • Represent and enforce the association’s mission, values, and goals, and implement strategic objectives.
  • Maintain all financial, tax, legal, and government required documentation, as well as corporate records, including meeting minutes, financial records, and continuing education records.
  • Coordinate and participate in board meetings and conventions.
  • Work with research grant and award sponsors. 
  • Facilitate membership development.
  • Provide administrative support and timely production of association products and publications.
  • Assist in the maintenance, updating, and monitoring of the association website.
  • Process all incoming and outgoing mail and shipments.
