Roadmap to Relevance and Revenue

Elevate Your Organization to the Center of Your Community's Economic Future

Informed by 45 years of fundraising and $1.8 billion in revenue for chamber and EDO clients, we've identified one factor that stands between token financial support and capacity funding for transformative economic growth: relevance.

Without exception, relevance determines revenue. NCDS' Roadmap to Relevance and Revenue is your trusted, proven path to achieve it.

What is the Roadmap?

NCDS' one-of-a-kind Roadmap elevates your Chamber of Commerce, Economic Development Organization (EDO), or similar organization to the indispensable, acknowledged driver behind your community's prosperity.

Over eight weeks of personal, hands-on guidance from NCDS President Tom DiFiore, the Roadmap's user-friendly and affordable process crystallizes a custom course of action (or Roadmap) designed to position your organization as the "go-to place" for community growth and improvement.

The Roadmap’s Secret and Outcomes

Better Asking Rights, Not Just "a Better Way to Ask"
100% Custom and Prescriptive Techniques, Not "Canned Plans"
Unique Perceptions and Insights, Not “Groupthink”
