We're young, small, underfunded, and growing rapidly.
We aren't exactly financially secure - however we are growing in Membership and plan
to add staff this summer. We're on a mission to sustainability. Right now while we're
growing I would not consider us secure. We're in a chicken/egg situation where we
can't effectively support our growing Membership without more staff but have a very
Best financial condition ever and just added staff.
About same mumber of members, however, the revenues are growing as we reach out
to larger companies.
We are growing-- but not as strong as hoped. We need a development director to help
us focus on growth and renewals.
Our membership and visibility has increased greatly, but traditional funding has
slipped markedly. (please make sure to delete choice b/2)
Growing but not financially secure
Membership is flat, but all other measures are up well: participation, media, influence,
mentorship program, comms / PR

This is still a work in progress. My hope is to see it through to real sustainability and impact.
Tough to balance... One day it seems there's unlimited opportunity and on the next it seems
we're spinning our wheels. It's tough to make enough headway to take a breath and get
perspective. I feel privileged to be in the role that I am but I never feel like I have the presence of
mind to make the most of the opportunity as I'm stuck in grind of keeping the wheels in motion.
Note: We are just beginning in the area of policy. The ranking above is initial understanding - total
new area of engagement for me.
Enjoy helping our industry grow and given a lot of flexibility to lead. Love coming to work every
most challenging and potentially, the most rewarding
I'm a connector by nature. Love helping create a better future by helping our members get where
they are going faster...
Great opportunity to connect and make a difference as long as you stay focused. Awesome job
that combines focused industry support and direction with other key stakeholders.
My job reflects the best and worst aspects of my skills, thinking and other capabilities. We're
working on more targeted board involvement to fill gaps and make the most of my strengths.
I wish I could clone myself and add an hour or 2 to the day, then maybe I could keep up.
Overwhelming at times, but generally creative and enjoyable. Internal respect and support
through our parent company has done a 180 degree turn
