David Westman was very helpful to us in fleshing out/framing proposals for two key initiatives for board consideration. He was well organized, highly collaborative, and timely in meeting our deadlines. I would highly recommend him to other associations that need outside assistance in addressing performance enhancement issues.
Senior Director, State Management Affairs
American Association of Nurse Anesthetists
Westman & Associates (David and his colleague Pam) provided valuable support to our organization during a period of transition and the beginning stages of launching a foundation. David was reliable, shared many ideas, and provided assistance in seeing some of those ideas through to fruition, and was willing to adjust his focus as the needs of the organization shifted during this period of time.

American Society of Hematology
David and his team were hired by our association to conduct an analysis of the process by which decisions were made during a move and buildout of new space and to create a Decision Making Model by which future association leaders and staff could follow to be more efficient in any future move. Westman and Associates performed beyond expectation in a very political environment and produced results to which all involved approve.

David did a superb job consulting for our non-profit organization. He did a thorough analysis of our needs and wrote a highly comprehensive report that we are still using for guidance. David’s knowledge and experience are impressive, his communication skills are excellent, and overall we found hiring him to be a very worthwhile experience. I recommend him most highly.

We hired Westman and Associates to assist with the review of our related 501c3 charitable foundation. The focus of the review was on governance structure, operations, board composition, and funding. David proved to be an invaluable asset to our work group, completing many surveys and interviews of stakeholders. which combined with his experience, resulted in insightful and practical guidance and proposed solutions. The work group was able to be effective and efficient thanks to his organization and subject matter expertise.

The National Board of Echocardiography, a physician-led certification body, hired Westman and Associates to assist with a major vendor selection and transition project. The project included identifying our needs and requirements, soliciting proposals, interviewing potential vendors, vendor selection, and overseeing the final integration. Our staff and Board of Directors were so impressed with Westman and Associates’ amazing staff and experience that we have also hired them to oversee three additional critical projects. Their partnership will help the NBE elevate clinical echocardiography examinations and certification to the next level. David, Kismet and Lance do an excellent job of keeping us on track with timelines. They also provide invaluable feedback and guidance with the utmost professionalism.

David Westman provided excellent facilitation services during a full-day UCP Detroit and UCP Michigan Joint Executive Committee Meeting, navigating the group through a process to agree upon a collaboration approach, identify key initiatives, and determine next step planning. As evidenced in pre-planning meetings and during the course of the engagement, David’s extensive experience, knowledge, and skills are top notch. Based on feedback received from UCP Detroit and UCP Michigan Board members, we would highly recommend David to any organization.
