Association Management Strategy & Implementation
An effective association starts by having a clear vision. The Whitehouse Consultancy can facilitate engagement between members to define strategic goals, towards which the attainment of all the association’s activities are directed.
In accordance with priorities and objectives agreed by members, The Whitehouse Consultancy monitors all policy developments of interest to the alliance and analyses how these can potentially impact members’ activities at national, European and international level. This intelligence gathering exercise allows us to assist members to navigate the various rules and regulations and help them find a common position that allows the association effectively and efficiently to engage on any issues.
The Whitehouse Consultancy provides support throughout the engagement process, setting up meetings with policy-makers and ensuring the association is represented in an effective and balanced way. Through comprehensive message development, we can create a good understanding of your association’s position among all relevant stakeholders. The Whitehouse Consultancy will make sure that your collective voice will add much greater weight to your key messages, and so help shape policy and the future of your sector.
