Membership And Professional Records:
Our membership registry staff will manage membership records, including corporate records, vendor validations, and professional records requiring synchronization with the South African Qualifications Authority.
Branding, Communication, And Marketing:
We prioritize client branding, marketing, and effective communication in all our services. It is a core service that we take very seriously, using the natural abilities of associations to generate media coverage, advocacy, and general presence in their industry or professional field. We provide office-bearer friendly email list servers, member chat groups, websites, board portals, and social media coverage as needed. We utilize in-house and external design resources to ensure a professional look and feel for notices, publications, and web-based communication.

Our event management team will assist the board in organizing and delivering annual conventions, general member meetings, and training courses on time, with full venue and catering support, at carefully managed costs, and with appropriate marketing. We manage contracts, payments, and related event risks, for venues and subcontractors, on behalf of the association.
