Introduces Expanded Marketing Capabilities to Meet Client Needs
CHICAGO – June 15, 2016 – The AMC Institute has re-accredited Bostrom, demonstrating its commitment to the highest level of professional management services and operational and ethical best practices. In a related announcement, Bostrom introduced a comprehensive suite of marketing services to meet clients’ evolving needs.
“We’re proud of our AMC Institute re-accreditation, which is another indication of Bostrom’s commitment to excellence in every facet of our work,” said Randy Lindner, president, Bostrom. “As we pursued the re-accreditation process, we used our agile approach within our own organization and identified the need for expanded marketing services as a component of our overall capabilities,” he said.
Included among the marketing services Bostrom offers are: Integrated Marketing Plans, Branding, Creative Design, Content Development, Media Relations and Web, Mobile, and Interactive.
“Our clients are increasingly using multiple communications channels to reach their stakeholders and with this new marketing capability, we can meet their current and anticipated needs,” said Jeanne Sheehy, chief marketing officer, Bostrom.
Administered by AMC Institute, AMC Institute Accreditation is recognized and supported by ASAE & The Center for Association Leadership and is based on the ANSI Standard of Good Practices for the AMC Industry. Only 81 of the more than 500 Association Management Companies (AMCs) worldwide have achieved this designation as the recognized choice of association and not-for-profit organizations.
“We applaud Bostrom on this significant achievement,” said AMCI Chair Greg Schultz. “AMCI re-accreditation requires that AMCs demonstrate adherence to operational and ethical best practices, as outlined in the AMCI ANSI standard. Re-accreditation distinguishes Bostrom’s ongoing commitment to leadership in association management.”
ANSI requires that the standard be reviewed and updated regularly to remain an approved standard. Measurable performance practices include contracts and service delivery; employee recruitment, training and professional development; and financial management and internal controls, among others. AMCs must earn re-accreditation every four years, demonstrating to an independent outside auditor that they continue to meet the standard.
