Associations

Stronger by Association

You work hard to represent and promote the interests of an entire industry or profession. Clark Nuber understands the complexity that accompanies your mission and partners with you to demonstrate value and fiscal responsibility in your efforts. Our professionals will arm you with the right kinds of financial information to use in sharing about your effectiveness with association members and the public at large.

We are also available to plan for entity structuring, consult on unaffiliated business activities, and providing governance training for new and experienced board members.

We currently work with some of the larger associations in Washington State, including the Washington State Medical, Hospital, and Bar Associations. Through our involvement with these and our other association clients, we are well positioned to provide guidance on best practices, revenue enhancement, and cost saving ideas.

Specialized Services for You

Our professionals can advise you in specialized areas such as:

  • Auditing financial statements to provide members assurance over the use of their funds
  • Reviewing policies and right-sizing them for the growth you’ve experienced
  • Navigating disputes of misuse funds
  • Forming 501(c)(3) not-for-profit entities for member education or other charitable purposes.
  • Advising associations on how to form Political Action Committees for lobbying or other political activity while maintaining tax-exempt status.
  • Minimizing unrelated business income from group retro plans, advertising and sponsorships.
