About AXI

Our Mission To build better associations and non-profits by delivering unique and unparalleled expertise, programs and services to their staff and volunteers.

Who We Are and What We Do 

During a decade of providing advice and resources to literally hundreds of associations and non-profit organizations1, AXI's founder and president came to realize that many of these organizations not only needed but were looking for a place to turn for more extensive and direct assistance. The challenge they faced was in finding a firm that combined extensive capabilities with the specialized knowledge and experience gained from working with associations and non-profit organizations.

To fill this gap, Association Xpertise Inc. was launched in 2000, and in a very short period of time, has become a significant presence in the association and non-profit sector. A key factor has been the success of AXI's consulting services division...a success that is defined by and based upon the results achieved for association and non-profit clients.

Launched by association expert Wayne Amundson, AXI delivers a wide range of consulting and outsourcing services to meet the needs of associations and non-profits across Canada. As well, AXI also offers management services including Virtual Officeô, Association Management, and part-time executive director services.  AXI delivers a range of training sessions and presentations, publishes The Canadian Association e-zine, and has developed a range of resources and products for the association and non-profit sector.

AXI president Wayne Amundson is a member of the Canadian Society of Association Executives, American Society of Association Executives, and CMA Alberta.
