Our Strategy for Superior Service
At IAMI, we strive to meet your unique needs by:
• Working closely with the organization's elected leadership to achieve short- and long-term goals;
• Cultivating close and ongoing lines of communication with constituents to assess effectiveness of current programs and identify future needs; and
• Developing and implementing a plan of action that results in outstanding service and, ultimately, client satisfaction. top

Forging Lasting Relationships
IAMI works closely with the client to develop a menu of services based on your current and evolving needs. Whether you need help with a single project or an ongoing assignment, we are ready to work with you by customizing a package of services to ensure your success. top

Leaving the Nest
As associations develop, mature, or begin to decline in the natural life cycle of an organization, IAMI recognizes there is often a need for change. From time to time, organizations determine that it is in their best interests to bring all of their services back “in-house.” Our commitment includes supporting healthy transitions for our customers and this should be a natural result of a healthy business relationship. IAMI will help organizations that select this path via knowledge transfer, training, documentation, and guidance to achieve success for their organization. top

Transition Planning
IAMI is unique in that we have the expertise, willingness, and commitment to work in a professional manner with other firms and with our customers. Transition management for customers either coming to an AMC for the first time, making changes to their AMC partners, or moving to other alternatives is a key competency. IAMI is committed to open, candid, ethical and honest business relationships while maintaining excellent business practices. Transition services can either be a full-service offering or a collaborative effort with all involved parties. top
