Our current stable of clients includes associations we have been blessed with serving for more than 16 years. We believe this longevity is a testament to partnerships built on trust and a mutual desire to meet the needs of our clients' members.
Association Management Companies (AMC) operate in many different styles of leadership and service. Our experience indicates that for a long term alliance, volunteer leaders and management must focus on relational growth. From that posture, the association can experience and overall higher level of membership service.

*    *    *    *    *

Some AMC's operate either in a cafeteria style of service allocation or on a billable hour format. PAMS, Inc. does not use either of these management models. It is our desire to be your full turn-key management team without the limitations associated with partial group management or the inherent confusion that can arise out of time allotment. We dedicate whatever time is needed to complete the task.

We are confident that our management philosophy and operational abilities will compliment your existing leadership. We look forward to the opportunity to more fully visualize the value of a partnership between your organization and PAMS, Inc.
