Paul Mengert has always valued education and believes strongly in the positive impact education and professional training can have in a person’s life. Plus, the impact is amplified as people interact with one another. Mengert studied at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro before founding Association Management Group (AMG) in 1985. He furthered his education by completing the Harvard Business School’s rigorous Owner/President Management Program (OPM).
Mengert shares his vision of education and training by offering his AMG staff some of strongest internal training in the nation. AMG managers also frequently participate in the Professional Management Development Program (PMDP) sponsored by the Community Associations Institute (CAI). Managers participate in training on facilities management, communications, leadership, governance, risk management, financial management, ethics, building maintenance, advanced insurance and leadership practices. Other training topics include parliamentary procedure, decision-making science, accounting, engineering, decorating and design, horticulture, lake and pond management, hard surface maintenance, budgeting, vendor acquisition and retention, bidding and contracting.
With such an extensive focus on training, AMG was one of the first companies nationally certified by the CAI as an Accredited Association Management Company in 1994; a designation it continues to hold today. AMG’s proactive education and training approach to problem-solving, as led by Paul Mengert, enables the company to successfully offer more efficient and effective solutions for its client associations. From the very beginning and throughout the process, AMG’s attention to detail directly benefits its customers, saving them time, money and headaches. AMG’s experience, accreditation and expertise at the end of the day equates to one thing: customer satisfaction, as evidenced by customer satisfaction ratings of 98%.
