OFFICES AND MEETING ROOMS
Quality associations are smart and to be smart you needs to look smart. Our clients have access to a modern national corporate office for use by members for routine meetings, along with a diverse staff team dedicated to serving the special needs of associations and their members. Our team is supported with state of the art communication and information technology systems.
A well connected association is influential and valuable to its members. Most associations do not have a proactive strategy to grow the organisation. Our organisation development managers will track the internal and external relationships and perceptions impacting on the success of the association, and actively manage these.
Client associations can depend on the day to day management of their operations, with internal co-ordination of tasks and management cycles. We ensure the sound operation of the association with due consideration of risk management and governance principles to meet the objectives of the association as an industry professional body. We also provide assistance and support for association office-bearers in respect of their duties and statutory compliance.
Associations can rely on well-maintained and categorised membership records as well as accurate member accounts on a "corporate-billing" basis. Members have quick access to account and member record information and help using phone or web facilities, including online event registration and billing, as well as online member record editing. We dispatch monthly debtors’ statements by email to members and manages an active debt collection process.
ACCOUNTING AND FINANCE PRACTICE
Associations can rely on accurate and up to date accounting records and the control of expenditure as per budget and internal policies of VdW&Co and of the association. Associations receive protection of assets against fraud and corruption, best value for client procurement of goods and services and management of formal member supply chain requirements. VdW&Co provides regular management financial reporting to client boards as well as audited annual financial statements.
Associations can expect meetings that are scheduled well in advance, timely and with logical agenda packs. We arrange suitable venues and catering. Our operations managers will draft timely, formal minutes indicating subjects discussed and decisions taken at your board meetings.
