“First of all, let me start by saying how amazing Tammy is! As beginning in the Chamber world for the first time, Tammy walked me through everything about how to run my Chamber. We started with weekly calls to walk me through every aspect of Chamber world. While the one thing that I have learned about Chambers is that no 2 Chambers are alike. She provided me with materials for not only programs that would work for my area, but looked at how our programs have been run in the past and offered ideas to make them more efficient and more successful. Having a resource to start me on the correct path to success is an invaluable resource. I would highly recommend new Chamber President’s and those that whom need a refresh to work with Tammy. She is a seasoned professional with a wealth of knowledge and creative ideas.”

Tammy with SOAR Nonprofit Solutions, LLC truly made our Board Retreat special. From the minute we sat down, it was apparent she was eager to share her expertise. She brought such energy and knowledge as she took her time to present us with an actionable plan tailored precisely to our needs.
Tammy proved herself time and time again throughout the entire retreat; she conducted detailed research and challenged us in ways forward-thinking in order to help us work towards achieving our goals. Her insightfulness in her field was completely inspiring. Truly, we can’t thank Tammy enough for all that she has done to help the success of our Board Retreat!

"Working with Tammy from Soar Nonprofit Solutions has been transformative for our organization! She helped us build a clear roadmap to success for our work as a small rural chamber of commerce. She did an incredibly thorough assessment of every aspect of the organization with Bylaws, finances, membership, and programming, and helped guide us through developing a significant overhaul of it all. She spent many hours with us to shape a clear strategic direction that we are already seeing the benefits of, even within weeks of working with her. Tammy's expertise and skills are unparalleled, and we would highly recommend her to any Chamber looking for a strategic thinker in their corner! As we celebrate our sapphire anniversary of 45 years supporting businesses in our region, we are looking forward to 45 more thanks to Tammy's help!"

“We are a relatively “new” Chamber, having rebooted in 2020 by hiring the first full-time staff in a few fears. We experienced tremendous growth and were in desperate need of a strategic plan that would allow us to grow smartly. Tammy facilitated an all-day retreat for our board that allowed us to hone our priorities and energies so that we could utilize our resources wisely and implement best management practices to effectively serve our members . We retreated over a year ago, and at each board meeting we give a status update on the different components of our plan . It has become a living document that serves as our business plan and helps hold everyone accountable to our organization’s mission and vision. Our board still routinely references the retreat and advice from Tammy. Using SOAR has paid dividends for our organization.”
