The Balance Group is a small independent consulting team. Working with client organizations, we support them to build their in-house capacity for operations and communication. We serve organizations when they need assistance with integration of new platforms, to initiate a new operation or face an unexpected challenge. For many, we provide ongoing website maintenance services; keeping their message fresh.

As our client organizations become more successful, we help them introduce more efficient and effective technology to improve their operational functions. We match the ability to communicate in cost effective, user friendly ways with subject matter expertise in affordable and factory-built housing, land use planning and training development and delivery.

Serving professional associations, for-profit and nonprofit organizations, businesses and individuals; we design and facilitate strategic planning, focus your messages to reach multiple audiences and find simple paths to powerful communication.

We support our clients by keeping their members, their customers, their constituencies and their public educated, in touch, informed, participating, investing, volunteering and taking action.

We would be pleased to address your needs.
