Association Management and Business Consultants
for When You Are Short of Cash, Time, or Know-How

"Non Profit Association
Management Consulting Services"

Grown too big and complex for volunteers
but still too small for full-time staff?

John Rust Consulting provides association business management consulting services for small and medium size Maine non profit organizations who want to get the basics right, but don't have the resources to hire full-time professional staff.

Maintaining solid business practices is a key function of every non profit board of directors. Not only do good board members demand proper financial accountability, but the IRS and your potential donors do too. Establishing and maintaining systems that will assure this will allow you to retain your non profit designation and gain the confidence of those who might support your cause.

Whether you are just starting out, expanding or having financial difficulties, the sooner you start building good business practices, the sooner you will reach your goals.
