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 membership organizations. We believe associations change the world, and by helping them be better, we make the world a better place. 

We launched Sequence in 2001, focused exclusively on association growth. We have never looked back.

Chris was a high-level consultant on strategy, technology, and marketing to Global 1000 companies in our former lives. 

Lisa was a senior executive, working with CEOs and Boards of Directors on growth strategy, organizational change, and corporate development. 

We believe in the work non-profits do and serve as members and chairs of several nonprofit boards.

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