Strategic Development

Here at TVD Associates, we help you learn to prepare, not react. We have experience crafting both organizational and functional (e.g. membership, marketing) strategies, and will work closely with you and your team to create a customized strategy that supports your primary objectives. We understand that no two organizations define “success” the same way, so we will collaborate with you to…

Understand your short & long term goals

strategically Leverage your information & data

clearly Identify your resources

Create a plan that supports your core objectives

To put this another way, we’ll help your organization define what success means for you. Together we’ll help your nonprofit or association craft a strategy that leverages your available data and allows you to keep your options open.

You can learn more about our approach in this case study about our work with the National Association of Environmental Professionals.

event management

In the world of events, experience is everything. Experience allows you to appreciate all the details that go into a successful event, regardless of its size, and to create those events again and again. Here at TVDA, our Principals have experience with events of all sizes, from intimate affairs and corporate team-building excursions to fundraising dinners in public spaces and gala dinners for 1,000 people on the lawn of George Washington’s Estate at Mount Vernon.

We understand that the success of your nonprofit or association’s next event is rooted in the details. Fortunately, we’re here to help you handle the loose ends leading up to the big day. We will take care of conceptualization, invitations, vendor coordination, food & beverage, and onsite management. We’ll be there, every step of the way – bringing our experiences in healthcare, corporate, community, and civic events to the table and promoting your business’s function in a way that produces the best possible results.

data review

Effective outreach is everything, and your database is your prime resource. Are you using it correctly? Here at TVDA, we believe your database is not only your ability to communicate – it’s your credibility, your stature, and your reputation. Our data review process is a short engagement… 

reveal the story of your data

strengthen your collection and reporting tools

customize a series of recommendations

help you address your primary questions

Our partners are membership- and cause-related groups. While they come from different backgrounds and industries, they all value strategic thinking, see the real benefit of leveraging data and value the flexibility offered by working with a firm that keeps an intentionally small client roster.
