Ann Arbor, Michigan – January 15, 2014 – Association Management Resources (AMR), a leading association management company, today announced its recent opening of a Lansing area office. AMR has been headquartered in Ann Arbor for more than 25 years.
“The increased growth and additional signing of multiple associations who wanted to be located in the Lansing area in the recent months prompted the need for the opening an additional office in the Lansing market,” said AMR President Diane Dufek, CAE. AMR has significantly increased its client base in the last three years and projects this rate of growth to continue due to the challenges that associations are faced with.
"Consistent high-quality customer service is the hallmark of AMR operations. AMR’s strong and steady expansion is tribute to the talent of our people. Our associations and events are managed by executive level professionals who serve as a natural extension of the client-team,” Dufek stated.
AMR staff are expected to be moved into the new office by March 1st. The office will be located on University Park Drive in Okemos. “We are excited with the new office space as we will be able to accommodate our increase in staff, provide our clients with a space to host board meetings, and serve our current clients when they are required to be in the Lansing area.”
AMR growth continues by joining with another association management company Ngage Management. Founder and CEO Tobi Lyon Moore has been hired as Senior Vice President and will be managing the Okemos office. Ms. Moore brings with her over 15 years of experience in association management, philanthropy, and marketing. Ms. Lyon Moore is also a past recipient of the Lansing Regional Chamber of Commerce “10 Over the Next 10”.
“AMR is a leader in association management and has provided the highest level of service to their clients for several years. I felt this was a natural fit for both of these businesses to work together,” said Ms. Lyon Moore.
“AMR will benefit from Tobi’s ability to develop strong relationships and her high level of strategic thinking,” said Dufek. “Tobi’s ability to lead AMR in the Lansing market will be instrumental to our continued growth.” AMR will be hiring additional staff to serve our Lansing office in the coming months.
On January 1st AMR welcomed their newest clients: The Michigan Association of Ambulance Services and the Michigan Medical Group Management Association.
