Committed to Your Needs

Truly Unique

We know you have a choice when selecting an association management company. We believe these things set us apart from our competition:

DMS is a woman-owned business. Kate Banasiak has been the owner, CEO and President since 2011.

DMS Staff is committed to getting to know your organization—in your own environment. Annually, key team members will spend a day shadowing members of your organization, experiencing their day-to-day routine and observing how and where your organization can add value to their professional role.

Professional development at all levels is important to DMS. Employees are encouraged to attend industry education events and actively participate in associations that support their respective roles.

In addition, all DMS association executives and leaders are required to go through training in all facets of association management, including: finance, meetings, operations, board governance, and membership. This provides staff with a well-rounded perspective and solid understanding of DMS systems and processes prior to assuming a leadership position.

DMS offers a customizable AMS that allows you to personalize the data fields collected for your association. Your organization can then use this robust data to make better informed decisions.

DMS is a Charter AMC Institute Accredited Firm, validating that DMS adheres to the highest industry standards.

We could not have been more pleased at the way DMS took ownership of their assignments and took on an attitude of professional teamwork. They made our staff feel that they were fully invested in the outcome of our events and eventually earned a spot as family members within our organization.
