The Association of No Workarounds
Our Mission: Amplify the Change that Associations Create!
The Association of No Workarounds (AONW) was founded in 2015 when a group of association executives decided enough was enough. They wanted software that would work for them, not the other way around.
Call us crazy, but we believe that association professionals know more about the inner workings of associations than software developers do. This is how you make a change!
We assembled a team of executive directors that are committed to contributing ideas, finding solutions to problems, and working side-by-side with our developers to build simpler, smarter, groundbreaking association management software.
It all started in a strategic planning session...
During the meeting, the AAGO board wrestled with a painful problem. The AMS they migrated to was a nightmare. Frustrations were vented. Horror stories were told. Accounting that should take a day, took weeks. Reports were never right. The software wouldn't sync with QuickBooks. Even the workarounds required workarounds.
There were a lot of smart, experienced association people in the room. Among them was Russ Webb, who was brought in to facilitate. Russ is known as the tech guru among his peers in the association world, always on top of the latest trends, products, and gadgets. (Russ was the one to break it to the members that their AMS simply wasn't made for trade associations, and there wasn't a current fix.)
