Get to Know GMP

We have over 20 years of proven experience in providing international scientific associations, societies and organizations with reliable, high quality management services.

About Us

Global Management Partners (GMP) is a full-service association management company (AMC) providing professional management services to various member organizations. Founded in 1995 with just four associations, GMP’s preferred model has been to work with small to medium-sized associations. This niche allows us to provide the high level of personalized attention and outstanding customer service that we value. We currently provide management services to 9 associations, societies and academies, ranging in size from 135 to 2,500 members. The conferences we plan range from small committee meetings to international meetings with over 3,000 attendees.

AMCs operate as a substitute for traditional administrative offices and paid staff members. Global Management Partners helps your organization by utilizing economies of scale with staff, office space and overhead costs. The day-to-day tasks of administration, event planning and bookkeeping are managed by our staff, so you and your Board are free to focus on long-term membership, programming, financial and governance goals.

We believe that innovation, creativity and exposure to the best practices are essential in order to bring new ideas to our clients. As such.
