Why AUA Management Services?
As the premier professional association serving the field of urology for more than a century, the American Urological Association (AUA) has proven expertise in developing and managing high-quality membership, meeting, education, research and advocacy programs. The AUA is a non-profit, non-commercial organization which shares a common mission with your organization. The AUA's management team is poised to help your Society manage day-to-day administration – this allows your leadership to focus on its mission and program development. We can assist in providing continuity as your organization's leadership evolves and membership grows.
The AUA Advantage
The AUA's professional staff can readily assist your organization in providing management services under the AUA umbrella. The AUA team is dedicated to governance, finance and compliance, meetings and CME accreditation, marketing and promotion of membership, and daily administration. The depth of skills and awareness of connections across the spectrum of AUA activities provides The AUA Advantage. Working as an extension of your organization, we can execute with unique expertise your administrative functions, eliminating the need for you to maintain staff in these roles.
Located just three miles from the Baltimore-Washington airport, the AUA's state-of-the-art headquarters houses the history of urology, as well as the archives of the AUA and its many entities. Professional office space for office-related business functions and use of the facility's auditorium, conference rooms and executive boardroom for board and committee meetings is available to your Society.
AUA's senior management is assigned to assist you with Board and committee governance functions, including Board of Directors meetings, and interim work and communication with your Executive Committee.
Accounting and Finance
The AUA's finance team offers exceptional service in budgeting and managing all revenues and expenses associated with your Society, and assures compliance to relevant tax and audit functions.
AUA's in-house legal counsel is available for general advice on corporate structure, bylaws, application for tax exempt status, contract review and any protective measures or litigation that may involve your Society.
The AUA's comprehensive association management software allows us to maintain your membership database, with staff able to facilitate inquiries regarding membership and status.
Fundraising and Development
Increasingly, events succeed or fail based upon the ability to diversify events income to include sponsorship and other non-registration revenue. The AUA Industry Relations & Exhibits Department secures support from the urological industry for programs, activities and projects while delivering results to corporate supporters. In interacting with industry, the AUA ensures ethical compliance with regulatory bodies/organizations, including the FDA, ACCME, PhRMA and AdvaMed. A program designed for your Society might include exhibits, advertising, CME scientific meetings and other forms of industry support and sponsorship.
The AUA's top-notch meetings management services are reflected by the AUA Annual Meeting, which welcomes more than 10,000 professional attendees, and includes a five-day plenary schedule, more than 200 courses and programs, and a myriad of special events, including a Welcoming Reception with nearly 3,000 guests. The AUA's meeting planning expertise spans didactic and hands-on programs, as well as special events. Over the course of the year, the Conventions and Meetings staff executes dozens of courses and events around the world.
Marketing and Communications
MarComm, the AUA's award-winning marketing and communications department, is available to promote your programs and services by providing creative, cost-effective marketing and communications solutions to meet all of your needs.
