The Catapult Advantage

Our Approach

Catapult, Inc. is a full-service Association Management Company (AMC) based in Richmond, Virginia and managing associations has been our business since 2000. Our approach to association management is very simple: we implement the vision of the association’s volunteer Board to fulfill the mission and ensure that the expectations of all members and stakeholders are met.

Consistent Growth

Our philosophy is one of consistent growth.
Catapult, Inc. allows your association, society, coalition or non-profit organization to make the most efficient use of funds and volunteer time, giving you the most impact from your available resources. Advantages of having Catapult, Inc. manage your association include:

  • Expertise;
  • Allowing your volunteer leaders to focus on the big picture rather than the administrative details;
  • Eliminating personnel responsibilities for your association;
  • Providing continuity, a historical perspective and institutional knowledge;
  • Objectivity and professionalism; and,
  • Economies of scale with streamlined operations and shared technology and infrastructure with other clients;

Return on Investment

Association leaders should think about their return on investment (ROI) when considering management. Our experience can help grow your association’s bottom line. Our management fee should be viewed as an investment in your association’s future growth.

The July 2010 report conducted by the AMC Institute states that associations (up to $5M in annual revenue) employing their own staff were twice as likely to end 2008 with a deficit as organizations managed by an AMC. Fifty percent of associations with their own staff operated at a loss in 2008 while 2/3 of AMC-managed organizations operated at a surplus.

So whether your association is local, regional, national, or international, professional, trade-based or interest-based, Catapult, Inc. is the choice for a reliable and proactive management company.
