AM GUARD System Management Modules

The Management Modules were designed to provide management and staff the information they require to perform their functions. The system provides the user with access to multiple screens at a time, expanding their visibility to needed multi-departmental information. All of the Management Modules obtain basic Individual and Organizational information from the Central Data Base. All modules that involve financial activity are fully integrated with the Financial Modules. When any module creates a financial transaction, the corresponding Accounts Receivable, Accounts Payable, and General Ledger transactions are automatically generated by the system and immediately available for inquiry in Accounts Receivable, Accounts Payable, and the General Ledger.



Membership Management
The Membership Management modules lets the user record, report, and manage membership participation in the activities of the association. The module supports user defined individual or organizational membership and membership structures, such as "members at large" or national, state, and local affiliations. The module's built in flexibility allows for user defined parameters including: membership types, variable rate structures, promotional campaigns, renewal notices, and dues invoicing. The system supports the preparation of labels, letters, membership cards, and management statistics.

Meetings
Associations can record, manage, and track event information, including attendee registration for events and sub-events (sessions, seminars, and "outside" activities.) The Meetings Management module provides users the ability to define parameters for each event or sub-event including: site (City, State, Convention Hall or Hotel); beginning and ending dates and times; room assignments and confirmation letters; registration and cancellation fees by registration type (early-bird, member/nonmember, etc.) The module generates tickets, rosters, labels, and speaker/VIP ribbons and badges.

Exhibitor Management
The Exhibitor Management module lets users record, report, and manage exhibitors at association events. The module interfaces with the Meetings Management module for event information and can handle multiple events concurrently. Users can define multiple parameters including: booth rates, payment schedules, and cancellation penalties. The module produces labels and rosters for the events in addition to Exhibitor Directories and management reports.

Subscription
The Subscription Management module lets users record, report, and manage subscribers to your association publications. The module allows the definition of any number of publications and subscription types. There is flexibility in the setting up of various rate structures and terms for each publication, providing the association with the ability to recruit new readers and retain existing subscribers. The module lets users define promotional campaigns and track their success. A full featured Circulation Audit module is also available.

Committees

Three group levels may be tracked: Committee, Subcommittee, and Task Force. The module can track any number of committees with each committee having any number of Subcommittees, and subcommittees can have any number of Task Forces. The module tracks position and term of service, allowing for a continuous history of committee appointments.
