Making our team
Founded in 2005 with one association client, we have grown to managing local, state, regional, national, international and global associations. This strategic growth has given us not only a breadth, but a depth, of expertise to allow us to truly get to know our clients on an intimate level, ensuring the most targeted services for them.
At NCG, our partners’ business is our business. Whether they are in need of full association management services, membership or marketing strategic planning and campaigns, producing a client event, managing a tradeshow, creating marketing materials or editing publications, NCG ensures established goals and objectives to guide projects from start to finish.
The end result is our clients’ growth and success.
Our Values and Mission
At NCG, our mission is to provide the best partnership-based association and event management services to our non-profit stakeholders and their members through proactive actions and industry best practices by a dedicated team of professionals.
Our vision is to provide a first-class association and event management excellence through proactive professionalism, with a dash of candor and humor.
We pledge to provide distinctive quality and unparalleled customer service as we strive to gain the respect and trust of our clients, association partners, partner members and leaders and our vendors.
What is an AMC?
AMC stands for “Association Management Company” – a unique model that allows our staff to be your staff. According to the AMC Institute, AMC’s are “for-profit businesses that do just what the name says – manage associations to help them grow and prosper.”
This model allows for truly customized services to meet each association partner’s specific needs and goals. AMC’s, NCG included, can provide anything from full service association management to project based consulting on membership and strategic planning and anything in between.
By utilizing our team, you access pooled resources to tap into various talents and aggregated experience without having the financial or logistical burdens that come with in-house staff or multiple contractors.
Many AMC’s serve as an association’s headquarters. Typically this includes an Chief Executive Officer (or similar) who manages the various staff and talents who may touch an association in order to ensure that both operations and strategic initiatives are successfully executed.
