In many nonprofit organizations, the chief executive is expected to be an expert in planning, marketing, information management, telecommunications, property management, personnel, finance, systems design, fundraising and program evaluation.  Obviously this is not possible regardless of the size of the organization. 

Lack of sufficient funds and hard work with little career development opportunity makes attracting and retaining an executive a problem.  A high rate of turnover among executives and other staff stalls the organization’s work and results in a loss of organizational knowledge.  Volunteer boards of directors become frustrated with the “revolving door” and the continual challenge of attracting and retaining staff.

Dowell Management’s approach is to align the skill sets of our professional team to efficiently and effectively manage the organization.  We provide an affordable, high degree of professionalism, management expertise, knowledge of best practices in the association management profession.  Leadership is then able to concentrate on policy issues instead of administrative tasks.
