Marketing And Strategic Planning Consultants

Chris Vaughan and Lisa Vaughan

Our mission is to help Associations Grow Membership and Revenue

We left our careers as senior partners in a Big Strategy firm to bring better consulting to non-profit organizations. We launched Sequence in 2001, focused exclusively on association growth. We have never looked back.

In our former lives, Chris was a high-level consultant on strategy, technology, and marketing to Global 1000 companies. Lisa was a senior executive, working with CEOs and Boards of Directors on organizational growth strategy, organizational change, and corporate development. 

We deeply believe in the work non-profits do, and we both serve as Board and Committee Chairs for several non-profits.

Our vision is a world where all associations grow and thrive to excel at serving their missions.
