Business Associations

Business member associations face unique challenges. Some challenges, like engaging members in events and sponsorship programs, face business associations regardless of size and geography. Other challenges are unique to communities with smaller or larger business populations. GrowthZone’s solutions were developed with your business association’s needs in mind.

Business associations use GrowthZone AMS to track and manage members certifications and continuing education credits, as well as monetize and track sales opportunities such as memberships, sponsorships, and subscriptions. (And more!)

What Is an Association Management System?

Many business associations are still using outdated back-office methods. They’re managing:

  • Data with spreadsheets
  • Events with free tools like Eventbrite
  • Emails with Mail Chimp or Constant Contact
  • Social media with Hootsuite
  • Billing with Quickbooks

All these separate tools result in loss of time and money that is better spent attracting new members and engaging existing members.

GrowthZone business association management software acts as a vital centralized hub for all your membership information, communication tools, and daily management functions. With our advanced integration, you can retain your favorite niche tools, but also enjoy access to built-in capabilities and a robust database that unifies all data in one place, so you can avoid inaccuracies, duplicate entries, and unnecessary confusion.

What is Association Management for Businesses?

Business association software serves the following functions:

Grow Business Association Membership

The software integrates into your website including event calendars, express signup forms, and dues payment modules to drive more prospective members to your association.

Manage Accounts

Define member type, contact information, and dues payment status. See memberships requiring approval waiting in the queue, handle renewals and expirations automatically, and create virtual member cards.

Manage Updated Directories

Update one record in your database and have the changes reflected in every entry, across platforms. Allow members access to a portal where they can update contact information to ensure accuracy.

Communicate With Ease

Automate correspondence and use drag-and-drop templates to build marketing emails and newsletters as efficiently as the more expensive platforms.

Organize Event Calendars

Define events by type, publish pricing details, track attendance, collect payments, print registration lists or name tags, answer questions, update capacity limits, and send informative email blasts or push notifications.

Engage Members

Serve your members with a mobile app, document library, committee portals, discussion forums, job boards, continuing education tracking, and e-commerce platform.

Track Non-Member Correspondence

Organize non-member correspondence to the press, government officials, community partners, and prospective members. Categorize and track event registrations, donations, inquiries, and more.
