What if attendance, membership and non-dues revenue are slow? Could your organization survive?  Yes.  In fact, it could even prosper.

The secret is to cut expenses significantly.  But across-the-board cuts won’t work. They end up sacrificing services, quality and people that give your organization its competitive advantage and ability to achieve its mission.

Instead, focus on the back office. Discover where to look for savings so substantial that your organization can thrive, no matter what’s ahead.

In this 90-minute webinar, Stephanie Scarola and George Wolfand from Expense Reduction Analysts show you how to be so successful at cost-cutting that your organization can continue to prosper even if attendance, membership and non-dues revenue are slow.

No more guessing where to cut.  Instead of cutting service levels and what members value, you’ll discover how to mine major savings in payroll processing, insurance premiums, credit-card processing, shipping and postal expenses, office supplies and other back-office costs. Plus, you’ll have the chance to ask your own questions during the Q&A portion of the webinar.

Reserve your space now to use back-office cost management to drive benefits for the entire organization, including how to:

  • Build a cost-management culture that supports funding needs
  • Mine substantial savings from credit-card processing, payroll and other back-office functions
  • Increase the efficiency and effectiveness of expense management
  • Implement lowest-cost alternatives without sacrificing service levels or quality
  • Achieve significant savings without cutting into human capital

These cost-cutting strategies can help you prosper even if dues and non-dues revenue are slow. Don’t miss this opportunity to take the worry out of what’s down the road.
