When you choose ADS, you choose our staff! This means that we take care of all the HR aspects such as hiring staff, new-hire paperwork, new-hire orientations, payroll, employment tax, employee benefits, annual w-2 issuance, professional development, annual reviews, and more. We also carry the proper insurance policies like worker's comp. Wouldn't you like to free up your Board's time so they can focus on the bigger picture?
ADS has a team of talented staff that can rotate onto a project as subject matter expertise is needed. We ebb and flow with our associations as they grow and develop their initiatives. We know associations are cyclical in nature, so we are there to support them from one initiative to the next.
Because we work with multiple non-profits, we can differentiate if something an association is experiencing is happening industry wide or is isolated to the association at hand and can advise on how to move forward using that perspective.
With Certified Association Executives on staff at ADS, we are committed to upholding ethical standards and non-profit best practices as established by the American Society of Association Executives (ASAE); the gold standard for non-profit professionals.
We are fully equipped, so our clients are relieved of the liability and associated costs of owning computers, furniture, and all the other things that staff need to do their job.
We have bought into several services that we share with our clients and pass the savings on to them!
We can provide more administrative solutions to your association at a price that's less expensive than hiring directly. For example, if you need an Executive Director, an Administrative Assistant, a Communications Specialist, an IT Person, and an Event Planner, then rest assured that we can provide those services at a much more cost effective rate than hiring 5 full time staffers directly.
When negotiating contracts and services, ADS ensures that the organization/vendor we are working with (ie a hotel) knows that we have multiple clients. By agregating our clients during these discussions, the vendor provides better rates and services for our client. Why? Because the vendor wants repeat business from our clients. (Note: Our clients are in full control of choosing who they do business with, but we can act as a negotiation agent for you and leverage our purchasing power.)
