What did Rondo Avenue Inc want to talk about?

I'd like strategic advice on preparing a memorandum to present to the Board of Directors listing the reasons in support of forming a separate non-profit as a means move from the parent organization.

Additional Context

In July, 2018, Rondo Avenue, Inc. (RAI), the parent organization, will be celebrating 35 years of sponsoring a community-wide 2-day festival. Later this year, the organization will open a memorial park related to the primary purpose but distinct in that year long planning will be involved to prepare for the park's events and activities. Moving away from the parent organization is difficult but there may be fiscal, operational, administrative and programmatic advantages to do so. I want to describe and pros and cons in favor and against such an action without creating bad feelings among the current board members. I am a founder of the RAI and I have been the board member in charge of developing the park, raising the funds and negotiating construction contracts with very little support from the RAI board.

What did they have to say?

This was my first time using the service offered by Catchfire and after my call with Christy it won't be my last. I was most impressed by the attention she gave to our organizational issue and the depth with which she analyzed the issues. She was pleasant, well-informed and supportive as we worked through the approaches to solve the problems. I am more than satisfied with the Catchfire experience and would wholeheartedly recommend Christy for an in-depth first call.

Enjoyed speaking with Marvin about Rondo Avenue and their organizational strategy needs. He presented a clear subject for our discussion in advance of the call, which helped our time on the call be productive. Marvin was a great listener and asked thoughtful questions. I was extremely impressed with Marvin's passion, knowledge of the problem space, and the emotional intelligence he demonstrated. I am grateful for the opportunity to connect with Marvin and wish him and Rondo Avenue the absolute best.
