Data and Membership Management Association Headquarters is one of only two association management companies to have recently implemented Associations Anywhere by ACGI, a new, cutting-edge assocation management software system. This software includes full-featured Intranet applications that are intuitive to the membership, collecting data on a continual basis. Since the applications run in a browser and not a grounded server, our client partners’ members can access it from anywhere in the world. I have been most remiss in not writing you to tell both of you what an unbelievable job Mike did for us at [client’s organization] last month. Whatever you are paying him, it isn’t enough! He covered every important topic, kept the troops in line and on task and made sure that he took them where they needed to go. On top of all that, my board genuinely bonded with Mike. They loved him and knew he was part of ‘their team’ to develop a Strategic Plan for our future.
