2 AMC Institute Members Merge To Form Denver’s Civica Associations, Conferences & Exhibitions

Association, Conferences & Exhibition Management of Denver has combined with its crosstown rival, Civica Management, to form Civica Associations, Conferences & Exhibitions, the companies announced.

The combined company has as full-service management clients a mix of national, regional and state trade associations and professional societies.

Both AMCs are members of the AMC Institute. Civica’s founder, Don Knox, who is former business editor of The Denver Post and the Rocky Mountain News, will helm the combined firm with ACE’s founder, Dorothy Shadrick, MBA, CAE, sharing top leadership duties while serving as executive director of some of the firm’s largest and longest-served clients.

New Study Shows AMCs Like Civica Management Bring Immense Value To Association Clients

DETROIT — A study of 167 associations shows that association management companies, or AMCs, deliver 317 percent more growth in net assets and 31 percent more growth in net revenue, as well as offering consistently higher income from products and services.

The study was conducted by Dr. James Gaskin of Brigham Young University and drew data from a random selection of associations with a 501(c)(3) or 501(c)(6) tax status and budgets between $500,000 and $7.5 million. It was released publicly at a news conference held by the AMC Institute, which sponsored the study.

Civica Management is a member of the institute and manages nonprofit trade associations and professional societies primarily in the Rocky Mountain West.

In a statement for the media, Dr. Gaskin said, “Given the wide variety of associations surveyed, and the random sampling applied, the findings are remarkably consistent. When we analyzed the data, it was clear that AMC-managed associations of all sizes tend to be the strongest financially.”
