Expertise in Building Assets
EAI can build your association into a more vigorous and effective organization. We work closely with your leaders to help establish a strong strategic direction and develop financial plans to implement those strategies.
EAI has an exceptional record of growing meeting profits and developing other non-dues revenue streams. About 85% of EAI client revenues are non-dues generated. Revenue growth provides organizations with the financial strength needed for new programs and building reserves.
In addition to clients prospering during the “good times”, all EAI clients experienced growth during the great recession of 2008-2011. Let us help grow your organization.
Demonstrated Membership Growth
Since 2000 our clients have realized membership growth of 42-77%. Even though many EAI clients are mature societies, they outperform the association industry in national membership growth rates as reported by the American Society of Association Executives.
Your members’ satisfaction is a high priority at EAI. Our clients have an average membership retention rate of 93%, significantly higher than the 86% national median retention rate.
Grow your membership under EAI management.
Competitive Management Fees
EAI offers highly competitive and flexible pricing to meet the needs of your association. Our management fee is based on over 30 years of experience and an anticipated volume of activity, staffing requirements and occupancy expenses required to deliver the agreed-upon scope of services.
The American Society of Association Executives reports organizations comparable in size to EAI clients spend about 44% of revenue on full service administration. EAI management fees are typically much lower than this national average.
