Having built a substantial knowledge base, extensive benchmarking data and published a book on The Growing Pains of Smaller Professional Associations : Key Issues and Interesting Practice, we are ideally placed to advise you in the early stages of development.

We give you long-term support and provide input when you need it, whether through individual consultancy days or larger projects tailored to your organisation.

How has our work helped professional bodies?

Organisations have used our service to review their plans and documentation, helping them to understand requirements and form an action plan for the future.

For another organisation with 50% of its membership overseas, we developed a strategy to increase membership and improve engagement, bringing an external challenge to internal thinking. Plus, through our resources the body gained invaluable benchmarking knowledge of the professional body sector.

  • Foundation documents and objects
  • Governance
  • Membership strategy
