There are many association management companies on the web, including those who are staffed by one person and those who are large enough to have regional offices. Obviously their websites have a range of quality as well, but there are some common factors. There is the interactive brochure that shows the areas serviced by the company, and things like online billing. Larger companies will also offer to build websites for their clients, which has both positives and negatives.
- Larger association management companies also now provide web design/development for their clients if desired.
- It can be tough to retain quality technology staff in some markets, and in other markets, hard to afford them.
- Even if an association management company has a technology staff directly employed, there are reasons to subcontract from time to time.
“Web development/services can cover a wide range of options for a specific association, there’s no reason to get into the details other than it can cover basically almost anything you can find an association’s web site today.”
