About Ewald Consulting

Serving at the intersection of business, government and society to improve industries and professions

We strive to be difference makers as consultative experts in our field. We provide the resources for our clients to be difference makers in their profession/industry. We create the means for associations to empower each member to be a difference maker in their work.

Founded in 1982 by former Minnesota state legislator Doug Ewald, Ewald Consulting has grown to include departmental teams of specialists in each area of association management corresponding to the needs of our clients. The company provides management and public/media relations support to state, national, and international organizations. Ewald Consulting serves organizations in all stages of existence from start-up to mature.

For nearly 40 years, Ewald Consulting has offered a breadth and depth of services that help our clients to advance their operations to the next level. As we develop a strong relationship with our clients, and as they discover the strengths of our staff and resources, the scope of our work expands seamlessly to meet their growing needs.

OUR VALUES

Integrity

Give the best, realistic advice we can based on what is good for the client. Only make promises when we expect to meet or exceed expectations—then work hard to do so.

Service

Put the customers first. Make being a member, staff, or volunteer for one of our clients an enjoyable and rewarding experience.

Improvement

Continually innovate to improve our processes and services to serve our clients better.

Respect

Treat our employees, vendors and the vendors of our clients with respect and work with them to optimize value for our clients.
