Category: Webinars

Golden Shovel and National Community Development Services released a white paper exploring many of the issues related to the ongoing trend of organizational mergers / consolidation in the Chamber and economic development world.

Tom DiFiore, President of National Community Development Services (NCDS), highlighted in this webinar the findings and recommendations from leaders who have been through the merger process. If you – or your community’s leaders – have thought about a possible merger, tune in to learn the potential benefits, negative impacts, and what to know about the process.

“As the smaller chamber operating in the shadow of a larger, very aggressive one nearby, the North Myrtle Beach Chamber committed to take its game to the next level.  You and the NCDS team not only drove the creation of a bold new multi-year strategy, you generated buy in and a huge boost in revenue.  A great side benefit of launching and funding a new initiative was NCDS’ identification and engagement of a cadre of new leaders who had never really participated, much less invested at significant levels.  Your methodology works, and your experience in hundreds of other communities paid off for us in a major way.  So much so, we plan to kick off the next multi-year campaign this year.   In my book, NCDS remains the ‘gold standard’ for community development fundraising.”
