Organizing Your Association: A Checklist Approach

Organizing Your Association: A Checklist Approach: Now available in electronic form only.

Markcheck Publishing has released a publication, titled, Organizing Your Association: A Checklist Approach", a two volume set totalling 800 pages.

Organizing Your Association: A Checklist Approach is a comprehensive reference tool that will help in establishing, operating and marketing Associations. A tremendous amount of thought and organization has gone into the preparation of this book. It is unique, well organized, practical, extensive, and different from other known publications on associations.
It is a good reference for all levels of an association.

The wealth of information contained in each chapter helps you to think about and consider just what it is that you have to do to run an association and make it successful. Board members, staff and volunteers will derive great benefit from using this book.

The checklist approach is designed to identify to, remind and prompt, individuals to think about the ideas, issues and items that they must act upon every day.

Testimonial Quote The book presents an organized and flexible approach, providing choice and selection, in a user friendly format, that covers all the elements. It is concise, clean, clearly written, easy to follow and allows you to find information quickly. The information is presented under major chapter headings. There are comprehensive subject and cross referencing indexes and a complete reference section in each volume.

For existing associations, it provides the tools to allow them to see what they need to see in order to go back and check to see if they're doing it. It provides the template to review and re-think what they're doing and how they're doing it. It serves as a memory jogger, a reminder of what's missing or what there is to do.

For new associations, it provides them with a template to follow, and what they need to know in order to do what they have to do.

Mark Hiltz spent two years and over 500 hours in researching, accumulating, collecting, reviewing, organizing, developing and formulating association information into the checklists.

With the electronic format, an association has the flexibility to copy and paste and customize checklists to suit their own requirements and needs.
