Our Approach

Grau & Associates emphasizes a holistic, comprehensive approach to association management.

COLLABORATION THAT LASTS

Our goal is to address core issues to ensure and model operational excellence. Although we offer selective à la carte services for associations seeking short-term assistance with event management, governance, advocacy, or other issues, our biggest “success stories” come from clients who capitalize on the opportunity to broadly revitalize and enliven their association through a sustained collaboration.

Since we work primarily with small-to mid-sized associations, we maintain a tightly-knit team of dedicated subject experts committed to ensuring swift and measurable results. Unlike some larger firms, we remain accessible, transparent, and committed throughout the entire collaborative process, showing a genuine investment in the well-being of each association client. 

As part of our value system, we keep overall expenses fair and reasonable. In fact, since we often work with clients to reduce organizational overspending or improve fiscal policy, one of our consistent aims is to reduce overall organizational costs while improving efficiency, engaging with membership, and expanding the organization’s market presence. In the course of managing an association, we consider ourselves allies of the organization – equal or greater bearers of the responsibility to see the association improve and flourish.

Our overriding goal at Grau & Associates is to help associations achieve long-term, sustainable success – to see an association thrive. Whether your association is a nascent idea, has just begun, or finds itself in need of an organizational overhaul, we’re here to help.
