Why haysmacintyre?

Declining membership. Financial pressures. Increasing regulations. These are just some of the challenges facing membership bodies today. However, while you need to be competitive to survive, it’s vital you maintain your vision, values and culture too.

We understand the issues you face and can help you achieve your aims and deliver the best service and value for money for you. Our specialists provide first class technical advice and can work with you to ensure you follow best practice and adopt good governance relevant to your organisation.

We work with over 100 clients including professional institutes and membership organisations, national governing bodies of sport, private members’ clubs, livery companies and national trade associations. They value our enthusiasm, involvement and commitment.

Protecting your future and traditions

Every organisation needs to evolve and adapt to change so they can meet new regulations and continue to survive and thrive. With our positive and practical support, we’ll help you build on your strengths and develop successfully, while meeting the demands and interests of your members.

How we work with you

Every membership body is unique; and what works for one organisation, won’t necessarily for you. So we take time to listen to you and understand your procedures and aims.

"haysmacintyre's tender was tailored to our organisation, it showed they had put effort into learning about the CQI and were able to demonstrate they met all our requirements. They came with a fresh approach and made an instant impression upon our Board who were looking for a more engaging relationship with our auditors. Obviously their expertise in the charity sector was also a factor."
Otto Balsiger, Executive Director Finance & IT, Chartered Quality Institute.

"Our first year’s audit with haysmacintyre was conducted most efficiently and audit findings were justified and relevant.  Their knowledge of the issues affecting the Sports Governing Body sector is considerable and we would have no hesitation in recommending them to other organisations within the sector."
