Member Benefits

You have made an important step in growing and managing your Mail & Business Center by joining AMBC.  We pride ourselves on being dedicated to helping our members succeed through advocacy, education, resources and programs. We set ourselves apart by thoroughly dedicating ourselves to our members and their pursuit of success.

Jim Baer established AMPC (Associated Mail & Parcel Centers) in 1982. Over the past decades, our industry has changed dramatically, and so have we. In 2014, we proudly became a member-owned, not-for-profit association and adopted the upgraded name AMBC (Association of Mail & Business Centers) to reflect the full business center approach that now defines our industry.

Our goal is to see our members flourish. Join us and take your business to a new level of excellence!
