TREC’s Vision and Mission
TREC has a vision of leaders, organizations and diverse coalitions working effectively for environmental protection, conservation, and sustainability in Western North America. TREC cultivates effectiveness by providing premier capacity-building services, delivered in-depth and over time.

TREC’s Approach
TREC provides coaching, consulting and training in leadership development, staff management, strategic planning, coalition and campaign management, fundraising, fiscal management, and board development. Through site visits, one-on-one consulting, coaching, and training, TREC partners with the organization’s leaders, staff, board, and other key stakeholders to enhance their strengths, shore up any weaknesses, and generally expand the group’s effectiveness and sustainability. TREC focuses our efforts on partnering with our clients in increasing the effectiveness of leaders, building more inclusive teams and cultures, and expanding the impact, engagement, and diversity of coalitions and collaborations.

TREC’s service engagements range from one or two months to several years. Each organization is unique and therefore our approach is highly customized. By focusing our work entirely in the environmental community in North America, we understand the political and economic climate that leaders face. We also know that groups cannot work in isolation and we support them in being effective collaborators and having the skills to work diverse with stakeholders. Most of our clients are grassroots organizations, working at the local and state/province-level, some work at a regional level. Because our work is grant funded, our staff are not required to recruit new clients and bring in consulting fees. Because our grant funding is stable, our staff can focus on innovation and continually improving the services we provide.
