The Greater Philadelphia Association Management Group LLC is an association management company (AMC) that specializes in managing non-profit membership trade associations and professional societies. We also provide back office support to small businesses. GPAMG is unique, in that, unlike other AMCs, we are small enough to customize our approach to the work of a particular client but still large enough to ensure that projects and work meet deadlines in a quality manner. We do not demand that you fit into our structure but rather we conform to yours. We specialize in working with volunteer-driven associations and we understand the importance of our role in implementing Board and Committee policy while still offering our advice on the issues.
So, whether you’re looking for the all-inclusive management option or a viable solution that will allow you to shift responsibility for an individual service, project or ongoing initiative from an over committed volunteer to an experienced member of GPAMG staff, we have what it takes to insure your success!

Collaborative Approach Partnership and collaboration are at the core of all we do.

The client will have a primary contact as well as other secondary contacts who work hand in hand with vendors and extended team members. We each infuse our unique talent, experience and perspective for the best outcome, and use our relationships to provide access to cost-effective solutions for our clients.
