Our strategy for superior service is to:

  3. Develop and implement a plan of action that results in outstanding service and, ultimately, client satisfaction

IAMI works closely with our clients to develop a menu of services based on your current and evolving needs. Whether you need help with a single project or an ongoing assignment, we are ready to work with you by customizing a package of services to ensure your success. We forge long lasting relationships with our clients – relationships that move beyond that of client/customer to one of associate and friend.

Located in a western suburb of Chicago, Illinois, we offer services globally. While we manage five associations with headquarters in the Chicagoland area, we also support associations in Minnesota and Philadelphia.

We utilize GoToMeeting, Skype, Viber, and other meeting tools to stay in close touch with our clients to ensure a strong communication system is in place. We believe that meeting client needs means understanding client needs and that can only be accomplished through regular communication and conversation. That doesn’t eliminate the ability to meet face-to-face.

Our strong customer service focus also includes how we work with the volunteer leadership team. We understand that we work for you and that everyone is a volunteer with a job. We respect your time and will work with your team to be available when you need us and to support the efforts of the volunteers to the best of our ability.
