How can we help?

About ATD Management

ATD provides management of business, trade, and professional  associations to assist in anticipating and meeting members’ needs. We  provide the office, support staff and necessary equipment to  keep abreast of daily operations. ATD’s services provide an accountability often overlooked by volunteers who are busy with their families and careers.

We effectively become the office for an organization, allowing them to utilize our resources.

ATD Management, Inc., a California Corporation based in Southern   California since 1993, provides services throughout the U.S. and Canada. 

ATD Management is a member of ASAE and IATA and can manage your association, plan your events, select venues, negotiate contracts and be your on-site contact from start to finish. 


What is an Association Management Company?

Association Management Companies (AMCs) provide expert leadership services to professional societies and trade associations. An AMC serves as your headquarters and can completely staff your association, leaving your Board of Directors free to focus on the mission of your organization. We employ experts in all aspects of association activities. Our experts become your staff; our office becomes your office. The AMC worries about payroll and employee management; when to order new equipment; and provides your board with the latest in association best practices. The AMC is responsible to your Board of Directors and becomes your partner in accomplishing the success of your association.


From administration to full-service management and everything in between, AMCs provide expertise to small and large associations in need of executive management, fiscal management, strategic planning, marketing, meeting and event planning, educational programs, professional development, development of non-dues revenue programs, statistical surveys, website development and maintenance and the management of any special projects undertaken by your organization.


AMCs assist non-profit organizations in building a strong foundation for your local, state, regional, national or international association. AMCs are experts at managing associations in any industry or profession. We know how to run successful associations, and we become experts in the field of interest your association represents. We provide continuity to ever-changing elected leadership.


Event Planning

Full turn-key event planning and coordination is one of our specialties. We organize events for associations, including:

  • Meetings & Seminars                     
  • Conferences                     
  • Fundraising Events                     
  • Tradeshows
  • Golf Tournaments                     
  • Spouse Functions and Plant Tours                     
  • Board Meetings and Retreats

Overseeing pre-event details such as venue scouting, site inspections, contract negotiations, menu planning and on-site coordination, helps take the burden off the hands of your Board and committees. We manage all of the logistics of the conference or event, and act as the liaison between the Board of Directors and the venue and association members.

Our office staff will provide the registration materials for your attendees and guide them through the process from registration to check-in.

Our goal is to have your attendees walk away from the meeting with a different experience. Not only gaining new contacts to build business relationships, obtain important technical information, but enjoy the conference and look forward to the next one because it wasn’t the usual meeting. 


Site Selection/Contract & Consultation Services

If your needs are limited to site selection for your conference, ATD provides no-charge site selection services to our association clients. We research hotels and other meetings venues that match the criteria chosen by the Board of Directors or meeting planner.


Not only is site selection and contract negotiations part of the many services we offer our regular associations, we can offer those services as a single service for groups. Many associations who have a full time in-house staff still need the services of an association management company. These associations are in need of assistance with RFP’s, site selection, and contract negotiations to secure the best location for their group at the right price. Often, there is no cost to the organization for this service.


We can consult with many organizations on expenditures related to hosting a conference. After reviewing past contracts and hotel invoicing, we often find many areas where funds are being wasted that can be used to offer more member benefits and secure more organization finances.


Some organizations/government agencies hire us simply to provide conference planning, site selection and event services for annual or bi-annual conferences.
