We are problem solvers
As a nonprofit organization, you navigate a complex landscape where various hurdles can impact your mission and success. At Association Options, we’ve witnessed firsthand the challenges you encounter, and we’re here to help you overcome them. Here are some of the critical issues we’ve helped nonprofits tackle:
Picture a boardroom where differing opinions, lack of strategic direction, and communication breakdowns hinder progress. We've witnessed the frustration that arises when board members aren't fully engaged, jeopardizing your organization's effectiveness and growth. With our strategic planning and board training expertise, we'll guide your board towards unity, strategic vision, and effective collaboration.
We cannot thank Association Options enough for facilitating IREM Austin’s strategic plan for implementation. The guidance provided has helped to open up new conversations, assisted in thinking outside-the-box and has refreshed the energy of the organization. Your facilitation has prepared us for a path to reach successful results and achieve our ultimate goal of making our organization the place to be in the property management industry.
On behalf of the WG, I want to say we appreciate the extra steps you have had to assist us with lately – sending things more than once and remind us of tasks. The significant extra time the past week both out of the office and “attending” video/audio conferences has made it difficult to get everything done for our “real jobs” and track everything.
Our organization was facing a critical need to evaluate our management model so we engaged Bill Pawlucy, CAE and Stacey Barnes at Association Options. Thanks to the great support and guidance we received, our organization has been able to make a successful transition to a new management structure. We have been extremely pleased with the outcome of our transition and the guidance provided. Due to their great advice and personal guidance, our organization is firmly on the path to success.
Thanks to you and the team at Association Options for all of the hard work put forth in making our client’s Board Training a great success. You quickly gained everyone’s trust and your approach was really well received by all. We appreciate the objective expertise on how we can refine and improve as a team. We are excited for the future of this organization and will highly recommend you to our other clients, too.
Our professional non-profit association was going through some transitions with our management association and the Board of Directors deemed it was timely and important to get an objective, external review of our management fees relevant to the services provided. After seeking proposals from several consultants, we engaged the services of Bill Pawlucy from Association Options, LLC and were extremely pleased with both the process and final report! He listened, sought the information needed with professional tact and proficiency, communicated effectively, and delivered as promised. We are grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Bill Pawlucy!
