Considering a merger?

18 Jun 2014 9:58 AM | Louise Stokes

Around the board tables of many not for profits, more consideration is being given to the merit of mergers. AuSAE are running some executive briefings focused around mergers and acquisitions. Financial difficulties, executive turnover, membership demands and industry consolidation often point to the need for associations to join forces. Attendees to the briefings uncover:

  • What the practical matters to consider in a merger,
  • If it legally possible to merge,
  • If the reasons you are considering a merger the right reasons,
  • How to make it all the way down the aisle, and
  • How to make it a happy marriage.
If you missed attending these meetings, please find below two helpful resources:
  1. A comprehensive check-list for mergers including the concept phase, exploration, due diligence examination and a preliminary integration plan
  2. A list of documents to exchange during due diligence (corporate, financial, fundraising, personnel & contracts)
