What is Association Gurus?

We hunt gurus, of course! (Not for sport, though. That’s unethical.)

Simply put, we are a hub where talented industry consultants, specialists, and freelancers of all stripes who have association and nonprofit experience can be found by organizations in need of their amazing talents.

Because of time, budget, and other pressing constraints, associations and nonprofits frequently need to avail themselves of experts for short-term, specific projects. In today’s rapidly evolving economy, associations find they have greater need for freelancers, gig workers, and fractional specialists to assist with all sorts of tasks such as interim staffing, outsourced technical support, and on-going speciality assignments that might not be affordable or worth the cost of a full-time employee. 

Thus, they are in need of a guru.

Now, we are not a job board nor a matching service. Association Gurus is a marketplace for associations and nonprofits to find the right talent for their specific need.

Are you an association or nonprofit in need?

(If you’re a self-styled guru, feel free to skip down a section.)

We want you to search the marketplace, find someone with the skills and expertise you like, and read their reviews. Like what you see? Then you contact them directly to outline the scope of the engagement, sign the contract, and get started. You’re in complete control and you define the relationship once you select your guru.

We like to think of ourselves as a "pay it forward" community. To gain access to the listings and reviews, simply submit a review and share about your experience so that others can benefit from your feedback.  Can't submit a review right now, no problem, you can subscribe for less than a cup of coffee.

Are you a self-styled guru?

Great! We’re glad you’re interested in joining our guru community. Before you can enter the marketplace for potential clients to seek you out, you’ll need to get listed. Follow the simple directions to get started, and soon you’ll be preening your feathers for all to see!
