Working with a Tight Economy


Everyone is feeling the effects of the slowly recovering economy. Budgets have been scaled back from already reduced levels, often significantly, as the result of erosion in the level of dues paid, especially by larger accounts;  well below-normal membership renewal rates; fewer new accounts; reduced attendance at events, programs, and meetings; soft sponsor revenue; and slowed purchases of the organization’s products and services.

So, how do you make the necessary adjustments without losing sight of your mission and vision?


Organization Dynamics can help. Our proven strategies address cost management in five categories:

  • Human Resources
  • Communication
  • Financial Practices
  • Physical Environment
  • Programming

At the same time we focus on ten potential approaches to revenue enhancement.

There are no cookie-cutter solutions that apply to all. That’s why we go on location where we work with you and your volunteer leadership, examining current practices and policies and learning the realities of the world in which you operate. We then test promising strategies, ultimately recommending a combination that, when fully implemented, is bound to ease the cash crunch and facilitate the transition to a stronger organization.
