Plexus Consulting Group® Association and Coalition Management Services...
offers the full range of services, specializing in membership satisfaction and growth. And, Plexus provides a unique approach aimed at growing nonprofit organizations to the point where they can become "stand alone" operations.
Helping You Achieve Your Growth
Growth for associations means growth in: (1) leadership capabilities, (2) size of membership, (3) scope of services, and (4) public recognition. Plexus has the experience and expertise to maximize growth potential in all of these areas and a track record of proven successes.
Plexus will help chart a course toward independence, according to the goals set by the association's leadership. We also have years of success in other transitions -- spinning off new activities, developing action-oriented coalitions, training new leadership, and facilitating restructuring or mergers.
Our full-service association management team provides proactive support for all board and committee functions. Plexus dedicates our talent to fulfilling the association's mission, building close relationships with the volunteer leaders and members. Planning, budgeting, setting goals, and delivering results are all part of our leadership support services.
Membership communications, database management, dues collection, and information dissemination are at the core of every association's daily operations. The professionals at Plexus are experienced in carrying out these routine administrative and financial tasks, providing clients with courteous and timely service and accurate reports.
Membership Development and Retention
As experts in association management and growth, we recognize that membership grows in direct relation to the value the association provides its members. Plexus conducts specialized member satisfaction surveys, then constructs membership building plans based on what the members value. Working closely with the board or committee, we identify target audiences, frame the message, and deliver the new and enhanced services and products.
International Chapter Development
Plexus is uniquely qualified to develop international membership. Our multinational staff has an excellent track record of success in developing international membership services and recruiting members from abroad.
Communications, Government Relations, and Public Relations
Plexus offers associations, coalitions, and industry access to experts in Internet-based communications, publications, government relations, and public relations. Our Knowledge Center offers a sophisticated tool for tracking important news, information, and government activities.
Event Management and Fundraising
Plexus offers outstanding experience in conference and event management, tailored to the unique needs of the association or coalition. We can provide total event management, and assistance in finding support to finance events. Our fundraising experts can help find foundation grants and other potential sources of financial support.
Technical Expertise in Your Industry
Plexus has a unique structure, offering professionals with years of experience in your association's or coalition's industry-aerospace and defense, financial services, healthcare & disabilities, international, manufacturing, natural resources, professional services, technology.
Sometimes organizations go through a transitional period due to restructuring or a change in leadership. Plexus is available to fill the gap in such situations. On short notice, and for brief periods, we can stand in for an executive director or project coordinator. Board and committee support, and supervision of day-to-day operations are thus assured.
Whatever your association management needs, give us a call. We'd be delighted to lend a helping hand.
