Let's talk about Emergency and Planned Succession!
I have been helping nonprofits discuss what they need to do to be prepared an emergency absence or departure of staff, or the planned transition of a founder or leader. I can walk with you through this process.

Think about an audit of your development strengths, and when was the last time your board evaluated its work. I can assist!

As a member of the Executive Transition team of the Nonprofits Association of Oregon, I can assist with interim staffing, plus hiring or succession plans.

I was honored to be a workshop presenter at Habitat Oregon and CCDA fall conferences.

gmars Consulting endorses the Charter for Compassion. This is a document that transcends religious, ideological, and national differences.

gmars Consulting is ready to help

George Myers has a unique style of consulting that focuses on what's working well: examining your strengths, assets and positive energy. Drawing from 19 years of experience in nonprofit technical assistance and using his skills in Appreciative Inquiry and an asset-based approach (ABCD), we will work together to grow and change.

gmars Consulting specializes in three areas:
 
♦Planning: Are you creating your first annual plan? Or are you ready for a three-year strategic plan? George uses the SOAR method (Strengths Opportunities Aspirations Results) rather than the outdated, overused, and energy-sapping SWOT analysis.

♦Organizational and Leadership Development: Does your board need to be more engaged or revitalized? Is it overdue for training in the best standards of nonprofit governance? How do you want to improve, or evaluate programs and activities?

♦Fundraising: George can help your board and staff with resource development. He specializes in how to engage donors (and board members!) to build a strong sustainable development program, as well as grant research/writing, annual funds and capital campaigns.

In addition, gmars Consulting is an expert resource for assessment and evaluation of your board or fundraising efforts. We offer effective, easy and affordable packages. 

As a national Training and Facilitation workshop leader. George presents creative, engaging workshops that will inspire at your next conference or training event.

With experience as an Interim Executive Director, George can fill in during a leadership transition, or help with an ED search process. He is a member of the Nonprofits Association of Oregon Executive Transition Team.

Need assistance with community development, change management, expanding or merging your programs, managing volunteers and staff? Ask George for these, and more solutions to the challenges Nonprofits face everyday.

George uses process consultation, rather than an expert (“I have all the answers!”) methodology. He enjoys working in small to midsized nonprofits, and those with a social justice ministry or environmental focus. Tithing on 10% of billings is a foundational value of gmars Consulting.
