Orleans Public Education Network
In 2012, Converge consultants worked with the Executive Director of the Orleans Public Education Network (OPEN) to conduct a thorough analysis of the organization’s financial health in relationship to its rapidly changing landscape and develop a set of strategies to increase the organization’s financial stability.
