Accreditations and qualifications

AMC Accredited
ASAE logo

Ewald Consulting is one of fewer than 20 association management companies that were charter accredited by the Association Management Companies Institute (AMC Institute) and charter certified by the American Society of Association Executives (ASAE). We strictly adhere to our own internally-developed code of ethics and have an ongoing policy of abiding by rigorous service standards set by the AMC Institute and ASAE.

Ewald Consulting voluntarily holds itself, its employees, and specifically its Executive Directors and Account Executives, to the highest industry standards. These are the leading professional standards in the field of association management. Full compliance with these standards requires detailed demonstrations of management systems, professional capabilities, and regular outside audits for verification of practice.

Ewald Consulting is a Charter Accredited Association Management Firm by the AMC Institute. Under the guidance of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), the AMC Institute launched a major initiative to upgrade recognition of the quality and competence of the AMC industry. The ANSI/AMC Institute Standard assists professional association management companies in establishing their own internal quality systems, and serves as the source document for the AMC Institute Accreditation Program.

Ewald Consulting has 10 Executives who earned certification via ASAE's Certified Association Executive (CAE) program. This credentialing program was established in 1960 to elevate professional standards, enhance individual performance, and designate leading association executives who demonstrate knowledge essential to the practice of association management. Today, it is the most prestigious and widely-respected credential in association management. Fewer than five percent of all association professionals have achieved this mark of excellence.

Breadth of capabilities

Ewald Consulting has invested in creating broad capabilities related to the association management field. We are able to successfully execute all of the functions specified in your request for proposals as well as many additional association management functions that are often outsourced. For example, we have a public relations team of six professionals, and we offer board development and strategic planning sessions to provide volunteers with the training and tools they need to succeed.
