2014 is set to be a record-breaking year for award winning association management company, CJ Association Management (CJAM), following three new account wins for the business in January alone.
With a diverse portfolio of existing association clients, the company has further added to this variety following its appointment by the Materials Handling Engineers Association (MHEA), the Association of Manufacturers and suppliers of Power Systems and ancillary equipment (AMPS) and European Association of Healthcare Communicators (EACH).
“Since the start of the New Year, many business leaders and commentators have been expressing cautious optimism about the business outlook for 2014 and beyond,” comments Christine Joyce, managing director, CJ Association Management. “Being selected by these three associations is fantastic news for us and does reflect the more positive feeling in the wider economy. I’m sure it will give us as well as our new clients, a great boost and set us on the road to a year of record growth.”
Established in 2008, CJAM provides a host of secretariat, management and administrative support services for a wide range of associations across the UK. The company’s expertise and outsourced approach helps associations run efficiently, grow their membership, improve their member communications while streamlining their operations.
Such an approach has become increasingly valued in recent years, with ongoing financial pressures meaning that many associations have been looking at increasingly creative ways to boost engagement levels with their members while also delivering improved value for money.
“Outsourced association management is often driven out of a cost saving exercise,” continues Joyce. “However, as we intend on proving with our new clients, it can also deliver a number of efficiency gains and some important best practice and creativity inspired from other similar organisations.”
