Ultimately, the success of your organization depends upon your ability to thrill your key stakeholders by making sure that all the components of your association are working together with a shared sense of purpose.


Kensington Consulting Group, Inc. has been advising associations and non profit organizations in developing and executing strategy as well as  aligning volunteer governance and staff organizational structures to support the mission and strategy.  As many of our clients can attest, creating unified organization wide focus to implement key objectives is a lot harder than most leaders anticipate.


In looking back at the dozens of satisfied clients who have relied on Kensington, we have developed a profile of the individual who is most likely to be highly successful using our Strategy Engagement Process:

  • You are the CEO, Chair, President, Board member or a key influencer in 
  • Although your association or non profit is successful, you perceive a gap between its current level of performance and its true potential. You seek ways to take results to the next level
  • You are concerned that too often volunteers and staff are getting bogged down in internally driven issues and concerns which limit their ability to fully execute strategies and achieve results
  • You believe there is a need to better align your organization, people, and operational processes with your strategy in order to achieve the level of success you know your organization is capable of
  • While you are appropriately skeptical of change initiatives, you remain convinced that your association or non profit can improve in many areas, if only you go about it in a systematic manner


If this profile sounds like you, we encourage you to contact us  

“Rick Goldstein was a tremendous resource to us as our board reviewed our governance structure and processes. Rick’s leadership, direction and impressive understanding of best practices was vital to our progress. Our governance approach now fully aligns with and supports the execution of our strategic plan and will provide an effective and efficient system within which to deliver on our mission and vision for years to come.”
