Finances are always a challenge with every Not-For-Profit Association. It’s a tug of war between income and expenses – expenses rise while at the same time there is a resistance to raise membership fees. It’s becoming more and more difficult to balance the budget while trying to give the membership first rate programming. Having dealt with so many of these challenges over the years has given us the knowledge of how to ‘get the best bang for the buck’ and present first rate programs on a limited budget. In addition we offer a sponsorship and vendor program that has raised additional funds that can be used to raise the level of programs.
Accounting services: Financial acumen is of extreme importance when handling the accounting for associations. BAM helps organize your association finances by assisting the Board in preparing budgets for the operation of the association and monitoring them on a regular basis. We use generally accepted accounting practices to track income and expenses yearly and for each event. We prepare and distribute financial reports in a timely manner. BAM believes in the policy of total transparency of financials and those on the board in charge of finances can monitor the flow of funds. We make sure that every dollar is accounted for and we provide financial reports that are detailed, easily read and understood.
Keen Eye for Detail
Our team is incredibly detail oriented. BAM is a team of eagle eyes that can spot even the tiniest flaw or mistake and have it corrected before it leaves our hands. We double check and even triple check all written and internet material before it’s published. We check all aspects of each and every event before and during so that nothing can go wrong. And if by chance something unexpected goes wrong, we think on our feet and move quickly to fix the problem.
