YMCA, California Central Coast
Susan Ives Communications developed a communications plan to promote the opening of YMCA fitness clubs and build support in the community among potential donors and members. Attendance at the grand openings of the new facilities exceeded goals.
"Thanks for the excellent job you did on our communications plan. You really captured what we needed and made very good recommendations. I always enjoyed our meetings—they were interesting, productive and fun. I am pleased with the end product and one of the things I like best about the plan is that it feels manageable. We will not be able to do everything, but we will be able to implement many recommendations, and I believe they will result in achieving our goal. Thank you so much for your good work on this project."
