Our skills and knowledge - acquired across a diverse range of organisations - ensures we are the best solution, regardless of whether your organisation is:
A start-up or becoming too big for volunteers to manage
Struggling to meet your objectives and capitalise on opportunities as well as manage the day-to-day operations, or
Seeking a professional organisation that can provide ongoing or short-term support your Board and staff, or manage key events and projects.

Three important reasons to use Association Professionals
Aside from taking advantage of over three decades of experience in the not-for-profit sector and providing the opportunity to centralise your organisation’s operations, we offer:
Service excellence and professional identity: Because we care about your organisation, we ensure our staff and suppliers do too! This ensures your members, volunteers and other stakeholders will always receive professional and responsive service. Our office will become your organisation’s office – dedicated telephone lines, signage, meeting facilities and archive storage can be included in your agreement with Association Professionals.
Flexibility, reliability, consistency: The resources required by all organisations ebb and flow. Our business model enables us to guarantee that the required resources will be available to meet the needs of all our clients. Your organisation’s work will be reliably completed by a manager/principal with dedicated support staff. This ensures your members, volunteers and stakeholders receive consistent service.
Organisational sustainability: Did you know that the cost of replacing a staff member – including recruitment, induction and business interruption - is conservatively estimated to be as high as 75% of their annual salary? How confident are you that your organisation is or could meet the ever-changing obligations placed on employers? Are you confident that your valuable data is secure, accessible and recoverable in the event of a fire or other incident? By utilising Association Professionals, you will no longer need to worry about the ‘what ifs’ that impact on business continuity such as staff turnover or injury/illness and fires or equipment breakdowns.
