Each of our Consulting service solutions is tailored to fit your unique organizational structure and needs. Ewald Consulting will present you with the best solutions available to get your organization moving in the right direction.


Planning Facilitation

We have been asked many times, "what is your approach to strategic planning for associations?” The answer is that our approach has to be the right one for the particular organization we are working with. So, we start by listening so we can learn about the organization, its size, scope and the unique opportunities and challenges that the organization is facing. Only then do we suggest an approach. Some organizations need to spend important time and energy establishing or reestablishing fundamentals like mission and vision. Others need a facilitator to lead them through a focused goal-setting session with action planning. The planning needs of associations are many and varied, and so are the approaches. Over time we have developed some of our own tools and we have learned techniques from other practitioners in the field.

Board Leadership Training

We understand the challenges of building and maintaining enthusiastic leadership within an association. We develop and provide materials and training programs to help motivate volunteers, improve their awareness of their responsibilities and give them the tools to do the job. This helps avoid leader "burnout" and builds a pool of leaders for the future.

Here's what a client, Women's Advocates, had to say about a recent leadership training: "Your presentation on the history of nonprofits, fiduciary responsibilities and roles of board members and staff was well-received by our members. The PowerPoint presentation you provided, as well as additional reference material, was relevant and timely information for the organization."

And the Minnesota School Age Care Alliance: "We absolutely enjoyed the Board Leadership Training given by Ewald Consulting. This is a training we are planning to use with our newly appointed board members on a yearly basis as it provides a solid foundation on board governance and responsibility."

Nonprofit Operations Analysis

The Nonprofit Operations Analysis is a thorough assessment of an organization’s structure, leadership, goals and operations. Our team of experienced association management professionals will meet with staff, leadership, and targeted members of the organization to gather key information and integrate these findings into a comprehensive report that will highlight areas for improvement and recommendations for how to make impactful, positive changes.

Market Analysis

We can help your organization by conducting expert-led studies on member recruitment, retention, member needs assessments, focus groups and comparative analysis to help your organization grow and thrive.

Customized Solutions

In addition to the solutions listed above, Ewald Consulting offers customized service solutions from helping you start up a brand new nonprofit organization to developing baseline indicators for ongoing monitoring and evaluation. If you have a challenge in the areas of Event Management, Membership Development, ITIS or Executive Leadership, we can help you get more effective results.
