We place leaders and build teams. We understand the relationships that exist between affiliate, chapter, and national offices and the qualities required to achieve outcomes across these contexts. We recognize the realities of public scrutiny and embrace community dynamics. Our work has ranged from Presidents, CEOs, and Executive Directors to Regional Directors, program leads, and front-line development and marketing professionals.
