Association leaders have to juggle a lot of tasks, and technology can often help with that. However, there are a lot of technology solutions out there, and finding a system that works for you can create some challenges in itself!
Many associations find that an Associaion Management Software (AMS) solution is the best way to juggle many association tasks. (Confused about what an AMS is, anyway? Click here for a complete explanation!) Ideally after initial set-up and implementation, your AMS will be good to go forever! Who needs to go through that complicated AMS shopping process twice? But often associations grow and change faster than technology, and sometimes what was a perfect fit a couple years ago isn't quite right for your association anymore.
That's why it's so important to check in on your software fairly regularly! Answer the following questions to get started:
Am I happy with my AMS?
Can my members easily use my AMS?
Is my AMS fitting my needs?
Naturally there's a lot more to consider when it comes to analyzing your AMS for use and effectiveness. If you're looking to do a deep analysis of your current AMS (and you shoudl!) take a look at our free guide to help you with that process.
