Our Staff

One of the fundamental benefits for a non-profit organization to be served by an association management firm is the ability to access a range of expertise and personnel resources on an as-needed basis. At ASMI, each client is assigned one key account executive who coordinates the interaction with other key staff in the ASMI organization.
