Organizations are like flywheels in that the collective work of their membership becomes stored energy; when released to the market that energy has a magnifying effect that can propel industries forward.
Flywheels are also powerful metaphors for organizations because they graphically show the relationships between its leadership, its management firm and its membership. The metaphor indicates a framework for the management firm’s role in maintaining support structures and services that translate the leadership’s goals and priorities and the members’ activities into valuable outcomes that transform markets and professions.
L&M provides the full suite of services an association is likely to require to fulfill its goals. Because of our experience and expertise in association management we can easily substitute a third-party provider into the arrangement where it makes business-sense for the organization. Because we provide each of the key services ourselves, we also know how to manage those services from another source to meet the organization’s needs and our service standards.
