Dawn is the consummate organizer. I worked with her as treasurer for the Association of Fundraising Professionals Golden Gate Chapter for which Dawn is the administrator. She had been in the role less than a year. Over the next several months we worked together to streamline finance procedures, search for reduction in expense, and screen more than three-dozen applicants for an event position. After initial collaborative conversation she carried out the majority of the work, on time, questions ready, always prepared.

AFP Golden Gate Chapter Treasurer
I have worked with Dawn the past 15 years. We have worked together for a high tech start up, a professional industry organization, a nonprofit, and my own small business. I have benefited and learned an enormous amount as she has creatively made these organizations and businesses far more efficient and cost effective. She often resolves challenges with a thoughtful and productive solution. She doesn't just “do,” she searches for best practices and implements to success. She’s a delight to work with.

Dawn Carroll is the consummate professional when it comes to helping to organize the work of business associations. She is a great problem solver and consensus builder. Dawn takes it to heart helping her clients achieve their goals in a professional and positive manner. She is good at balancing the needs of individual association members with the needs of the board of directors. I highly recommend her professional services.

Dawn Carroll is a pro in every way. She not only plans, executes and follows through with finesse, she anticipates with experience and insight. Each and every project Dawn handled for AFP SVC during my tenure on the Board and as National Philanthropy Day co-chair, was performed with skill, a winning attitude and a desire to provide continuous improvement.
