Association consulting services

Amplify your impact and achieve your vision

Reframe your strategies and unlock the real impact of technology to transform faster, engage smarter and lead your association with confidence and clarity.

The challenges facing associations are significant: Technology. Competition. Funding. Fatigue.

But so are the opportunities that come from new and impactful solutions that can empower you to:

  • Deepen human connections.
  • Captivate constituents.
  • Automate personalized membership experiences.
  • Elevate employee experiences.
  • Accelerate growth.
  • Align leadership, board and team.

Why Wipfli?

What makes us different is that we are as passionate about making a difference in your association as you are in the lives of your members. And we back that passion with more than 20 years of experience and custom solutions tailored for associations.

While some firms can help with leadership and others can help with technology or finances, we bring a suite of integrated services that break through silos to drive tangible and impactful results across your entire association.

Our diverse set of skills brings solutions in:

  • Organizational performance and leadership.
  • Digital, data, cybersecurity and enterprise platforms.
  • Outsourcing for accounting, HR and technology.
  • Financial solutions, audit, accounting and tax.
  • Fraud, forensics and compliance.

We also don’t deliver solutions and run. Wipfli’s mission is to help associations achieve their full potential, empowered by the security of a stable foundation. That means we deeply invest in our relationships to drive the results you need for today and tomorrow.

Services for associations

Digital services

We help associations build strong data foundations so that they can make decisions, communicate with members and speed up operations. Where’s your roadblock? See how we can provide a solution to fill your talent gap or tighten security to help you clear regulatory hurdles.

Organizational performance

Build the team you need and the culture you want with a strong strategy and vision. We help associations train and retrain strong leaders and teams. We can also help you decide what, when and how to outsource. We use data-backed tools such as the Predictive Index to ensure the right people are in the right roles, both now and as you grow.

Leadership training

Low engagement. Weak productivity. Lack of accountability. Lackluster leadership. Without the right people — from boards to interns — you cannot optimize your organization’s performance to sustain growth and achieve success. Our executive coaching and leadership training programs use proven, tangible techniques so you can get a greater return on your people.

Outsourced accounting and technology

It’s time to hand off tasks that you (and your staff) don’t love or have the time or experience to handle. Whether that’s running payroll, paying bills or closing the books — we’ve got you. Outsource your CFO, accounting or IT roles to Wipfli and reclaim time and energy.

Tax services

Taxes are complicated, and that complexity only grows as you scale. We make taxes easier for you to manage, even if you operate in multiple cities, states or countries. We handle tax planning, reporting and filing — and help you predict the tax consequences of future strategies. Wipfli brings everything into focus and creates more opportunities for tax-advantaged growth.

Audit services

Wipfli’s audit specialists help associations address complex audit challenges head on, and to anticipate future requirements. We have extensive association experience at the local, state and national level.

Philanthropic advisory services

Let Wipfli help you tap into the power of philanthropy. Our advisors provide the knowledge, guidance and experience you need to reach your philanthropic goals and diversify your revenue streams.
