Virtual Association Management is an
innovative and effective solution for non-staffed associations when the
work becomes too much for the volunteers. Fortunately, it doesnít
require the significant resources normally associated with full-time
staff or an office.
After many years of doing everything themselves, association volunteers
often recognize that the logical next step in their organizationís

small office. On the surface, it may seem like an affordable and
effective solution, but it is often neither.
A better alternative for many non-staffed organizations is to consider
virtual association management services. The association can then
establish enhanced and value-added access for members and others through
postal, courier, telephone, fax, web, and e-mail presence provided with

some tasks with volunteers, outsource tasks elsewhere, or contract them

administrative burdens to a qualified association professional, and, at
the same time, they get more broad-based association experience and
