Strategic Plan for Historic Macon Foundation

Hanbury Preservation Consulting prepared a strategic plan for Historic Macon Foundation, the local preservation non-profit for Macon, Georgia.  The methodology included an assessment report based on research, a board survey and a membership survey.  The assessment provided insight to the board and served as a foundation for a two-day strategic planning retreat designed and facilitated by Hanbury Preservation Consulting.  During the retreat, Mary Ruffin Hanbury worked with board members to refine the organization’s mission, to develop and prioritize long term objectives and to create goals that support the objectives.  The resulting document, driven by the board, will guide the organization for the next three to five years.

"Mary Ruffin came highly recommended to Historic Macon and I can only add to that endorsement. Using the National Trust's methodology allows us to track our improvement over time. A lot of firms offer planning for non-profits, but hiring an accomplished preservationist like Mary Ruffin helped us plan to be an excellent non-profit AND a non-profit that saves historic buildings. I have no doubt that Historic Macon Foundation will be more effective now and that we will be calling on Mary Ruffin for help again."
