The Medical Group Management Association and American College of Medical Practice Executives will merge, effective Jan. 1, 2012.

Following two years of talks and an October vote by members, the new association will be known as MGMA-ACMPE, with a new board of directors announced on Oct. 26.

Englewood, Colo.-based MGMA represents physician practice administrators and has 22,500 members. ACMPE, providing board certification and leadership development services for 6,750 members, has been a closely aligned but legally separate affiliate of MGMA. A formal merger will reduce redundancies, saving money in such areas as budgeting, financial audits and strategic planning, according to the organizations.

Current members of either association will automatically be members of the new association with a single dues payment equal to current MGMA dues. More information is available at
