We are an association management company (AMC) dedicated to seeing business needs before the association does by analyzing and recommending processes, plans, and strategies to help them grow. Thirty-one years of experience and exposure to different business environments enable us to do that.
Jack Friday was established in 2019 as a spin-off from another company as a way to continue to serve the current association management clients while the direction of the other company changed to focus more on trade shows and exhibitor services.
As an AMC, we provide management services for associations that need professional staff to handle the day-to-day administrative support, meetings & events, financial management, and technology operations of their organization. We also provide guidance and strategies for growth, organizational design, and strategic planning. We work remotely and use all of our own equipment to provide services to your organization.
We have worked with clients in various industries, geographical areas (regional and national), and those with different non-profit statuses including 501(c)(3), 501(c)(4), and 501(c)(6).
Board members should have the time to focus on strategic issues and not worry about the day-to-day operations. We make a commitment to our clients that we will proactively manage the day-to-day operations and help support their efforts so they can succeed in their mission and achieve their vision.
We will oversee the day-to-day operations (mail, telephone, email, records management) of your organization, work with leadership, manage your membership, assist with strategic planning, and consult on governance structures.
We provide a variety of financial services based on the needs of your organization. Our services include making deposits, managing bank accounts, maintaining financial records, issuing checks, and working with auditors.
We plan a variety of meetings and events for our clients. This includes smaller governance meetings, social gatherings, VIP dinners, and educational conferences, webinars, workshops, and seminars, for small to large audiences. We can work with your volunteers to plan the event or we can take care of everything needed to make your event successful.
We have experience on the front and back end of trade show management. We can take care of exhibitor and sponsor solicitations, facility coordination, floor management, third-party vendor coordination, and act as or work with your service contractor.
We'll use our own computer equipment so you don't have to worry about purchasing or maintaining hardware. We also help set up and maintain the services you need to operate efficiently including databases and websites. We have experience with multiple website vendors, online event and membership management software packages, and specialty software packages.
We can develop your marketing materials and graphics. We provide design services for newsletters, flyers, donation solicitations, membership collateral, campaign materials, and event signage.
Our mission is to provide a variety of expert-level administrative, financial, meetings & events, and IT services to the nonprofit community through remote services that contribute to our client's success. Our vision is that our clients view us as the most valuable asset they have in helping them successfully complete projects and meet their goals. These are just a few of the stories that help us fulfill our mission when we are helping your organization meet your goals and objectives.
Sometimes, we are successful in ways that only we know about. Our job is to make our clients look good and not draw attention to the people behind the scene that made it happen. I can recount numerous times where we have been able to negotiate with a vendor for free or discounted services for our clients. I can recall a recent event where we saved $18K by using coupons, bundling items, and negotiating discounted rates. This helped increase the bottom line and made the event more profitable for our client.
We are proud that we were able to support our clients during the challenges of COVID-19. We made adjustments in services and found new ways to help support the needs of the associations and their membership.
We even saved a conference in April 2020 by going virtual with less than 3 weeks to make the transition!
