The Nimble AMS Membership object and process enables you to easily manage the current, future, and past memberships for your association. This can be tuned to a professional association where the memberships are primarily individuals, to a trade association where the memberships are at the organization level with complex flow down rules, or to a combination of both professional and trade membership features within the same organization.
