What’s Special About Nonprofit Mergers?
Recorded on April 19, 2016



Nonprofit leaders and association board members are finding that mergers and other strategic alliances can free them from the struggle of trying to meet growing needs with shrinking funds. In fact, mergers can create cost-savings and synergies that generate the resources and momentum to keep member services and programs going strong.

Could a merger make the difference for your association?  The first step is to understand when mergers do (and don’t) make sense. Next, you must look ahead at how you’d get buy-in and avoid frequent pitfalls.  Then, if a merger is right, you need to find a way to reach an agreement without letting sky-high consulting fees ruin the value of the merger itself.

Now, let one of the association community’s top merger experts guide you through it all!
