While the consultant will provide strategic direction, it is important for the not-for-profit organization to understand and accept that, as an organization, it has certain management responsibilities in the campaign. Day-to-day management, such as follow-up correspondence and other time sensitive activities are often best conducted by the organization rather than a consultant.
