Become A Spire Client
Getting to Know Your Organization
The first step in becoming a Spire Management client is to help us get to know your organization. Please fill out our Contact Form. The form helps us research your organization. We need to learn about your industry, your organization’s causes and the kinds of events that you hold for your members or supporters.
Transition Interview and Worksheet
Once we have that information, one of our account managers will get in touch with you to arrange a meeting to narrow down the kinds of services or support you need. Further along in this process, we will use a standard format from the American Society of Association Management for management transition. The “transition worksheet” we use has proven to be thorough and extremely helpful to volunteer leaders who are changing their management structure. Whether your organization becomes a Spire client or not, the questions asked and research required for this process will be vital to your continued success.
Spire Management can help for the short term or long term. Spire staff can provide event planning services for stand alone events, other short term projects or hourly consulting. We can also provide interim management while the search for a permanent executive director is made. The majority of our clients are on a retainer for long term association management services. In any scenario, our contracts contain detailed “scope of services” section that outlines in detail the activities and services to be provided by volunteers and by Spire staff. This process provides clear expectations and ensures long term success.
Request for Association Information
The following is a checklist that will facilitate a comprehensive, open exchange of information between your organization and Spire Management.
