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.

Concurrent Memberships

Nimble AMS currently allows up to three concurrent memberships by default. If your organization requires more you will need to contact our Services Team to provide a custom solution.

Membership Configuration

Memberships in Nimble AMS enable you to customize and configure records in a variety of ways through special pricing, membership types, proration rules, and membership products.

Membership Management

Memberships can need to be modified for a variety of reasons - maybe someone no longer has the qualifications required to retain a membership and need to move to a different tier, or they need to cancel half way through. Whatever the reason, you can easily manage and adjust constituent memberships by using our standard features, or you can customize and create new processes to suit your needs.
