    Choice and Stability

    Choice: FASS offers a complete array of top-notch services, including accounting, membership, convention and meeting planning, information technology, and scientific publication services at a fraction of the cost of hiring your own full-time staff, owning a building, and paying for maintenance and business overhead. One of the greatest benefits of partnering with FASS is that you maintain control. Together, we will establish a services plan that best fits the needs and budget. Our clients are billed only for the services that are used. A state‐of-the‐art time‐keeping system allows detailed reporting to ensure accuracy of charges to our clients. This reporting capability allows you to maintain maximum control of your budget throughout the year. Our flexible approach to service offerings provides an ideal cost-management opportunity to our partners, allowing them to control costs as their needs are determined.

    Stability: When your volunteers and board members change, FASS provides a source of stability and continuity. Your new volunteers and officers can lean on our standardized processes, experienced staff, and institutional memory to provide consistency to your organization.
