“Affiniscape has a long and successful history of serving the unique needs of state and local associations while YourMembership.com has a long-standing commitment to diverse member-centric organizations around the globe,” Stover said. “For all of our current customers, the benefit of this partnership will be immediate and wide-reaching. Going forward, the combined company will benefit member-centric organizations everywhere by providing even greater, industry-leading software solutions and professional services that meet and exceed the unique needs of specific industry niches.”
