MOS is specialised in providing full service services for professional associations. Our services services are always adjusted to the specific individual needs of our clients. Clients can combine their own set of services. You can download the specific factsheets on the right.
Any professional association pivots on its secretariat, which is responsible for carrying out and monitoring the primary processes. The secretariat takes care of all incoming and outgoing communications, organises meetings and gatherings and keeps the membership records. In addition, the secretariat is a helpdesk and an inquiry office for members and third parties. It is also responsible for keeping the web content up-to-date and managing the records.
At MOS your secretariat is always accessible and available five days a week.
Our association managers contribute ideas about the substance of policies to executive committee members, without taking a seat on the committee. On request, they provide advice and submit proposals in the scope of the association’s objectives and the strategy related thereto. In addition, an association manager is responsible for implementing the policies and organising relevant activities in order to realise the association’s objectives.
Internally the association manager directs the assignment team and is the first contact for clients about the concrete services provided by MOS.
On request, we provide comprehensive financial accounting services to our clients, from invoicing to management of accounts receivable. We also submit reports about financial developments in the association to the treasurer on a periodical basis.
We can also provide make the financial records of the association available for inspection to executive committee members through the website (see also ‘virtual association’). In addition, we may draw up the annual accounts and provide advice on and make preparations for drawing up budgets.
Developing and implementing websites
We have the knowledge to advise you on web development, which may involve creation of an entirely new website or modification of an existing one. Because we have developed a very user-friendly package ourselves, specially for professional associations, MOS can offer you a good website with many functionalities at a competitive price.
Advice and project
You are not looking for a permanent solution or service, but you have a problem for which you want to receive advice or support? MOS can also assist you with temporary solutions! We would like to meet with you to discuss your needs, the details about the goal or result and we will provide you with the right advice, project management or temporary support. Our project managers and consultants have a lot of experience in various fields of expertise and they can assist you with solving your problem.

Besides our main services we provide several other services.
Strategy of the association
MOS may advise you on optimising:
- positioning and presenting the association;
- organising services and activities collectively;
- members benefiting individually ‘what’s in it for me?’;
- the association’s infrastructure.
MOS can advise you on both the internal and the external communication of your association as well as edit (web-based) your publications, such as a periodical newsletter.
Online services - ‘the virtual association’
The association’s virtual environment will never substitute the physical one, but it is an additional virtual meeting point and a place where diaries, documents, etc. may be consulted and edited.
Organisation of events
This varies between minor events that are organised by the secretariat and major ones that we contract out to our partner MOS Events.

We provide photo and video services, for capturing important moment at meetings for example!
