Providing not-for-profit organizations executive level guidance, including conference, publishing, and membership management.

Brandon Taylor Charpied | Owner

I have invested my entire professional career working in the not-for-profit sector, putting my skills to use to ensure that 501(c)3 organizations are able to strive toward achieving their missions. Through a background in marketing, management, and technology, my goal is to allow an organization's 'working board' to evolve into the 'visionary board' it is meant to be, leaving the execution of those visions to me. A not-for-profit should not be fretting about today -- a not-for-profit should be actively looking toward the horizon for what five years from today may bring forth. It's time your organization be set on a path of proactiveness rather than reactiveness.

UpScholar has extensive experience and success in both physical and virtual conferences with 25 conferences run around the world comprised of over 7,000 attendees and over 3,500 sessions, as well as virtual conferences run in the pandemic-stricken 2020 that were comprised of over 350 virtual presentations with over 10,000 online accesses of those sessions.

JOURNAL MANAGEMENT

With long-time working relationships with those at SAGE, Wiley, Taylor & Francis, Emerald, and even Open Access initiatives and platforms (Janeway, PKP OJS), you can trust that your journal will be in good hands as I work with your publisher and Editor-in-Chief along the lines of membership distribution, TPS access, and journal contract negotiations.

MEMBERSHIP MANAGEMENT

At the end of the day, without your membership - and the active engagement of that membership - you don't have an organization nor the human capital needed to fulfill your organization's mission. Through direct contact with your membership via newsletters, social media, discussion lists, and more, we will engage your members in every which way and make sure your organization remains at the forefront of their minds!

ELECTION & AWARDS MANAGEMENT

Allow us to handle streamlined nominations, elections, and awards. We'll create the necessary forms and ballots, distribute to membership, receive the votes, and certify the results, all while working with your respective committees and Board.

501(c)3 COMPLIANCE

We will work with whatever state you are incorporated in to file your Annual Report, State 990*, Federal 990, all associated schedules dependent on annual operations and receipts, and work with your registered agent. Don't have a registered agent in your state for compliance needs? We'll fix that!

*Not all states refer to annual filings as a 990.

COMMUNICATIONS

Nothing is more critical than engaging with your members. We'll ensure that you have a proper presence on social media (Facebook Group/Page, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Instagram), we'll work with you to compile content and develop newsletters, and update and/or overhaul your website as needed.

Activate Your Board!

Allow the efficiencies of time and scale that UpScholar can instill within your organization to free up your board to focus on what matters -- what are our goals and how can we mobilize to achieve them? Don't bog your board down in the day-to-day minutiae. Set big goals. We'll strive toward those goals. We'll achieve those goals. Then what? Then we'll set even more lofty goals!

Testimonials

I had the pleasure of working with Brandon Charpied and UpScholar for three years when I President of the Organizational Behavior Teaching Society. Brandon was and is the Executive Operations Director of the Society and handled an amazing range of activities: from running all aspects of the conference, to website and social media development and maintenance to membership planning and growth to promotion of the annual conferences and daily interaction with Society members. I found Brandon to be extremely responsive at almost any request on my part. He had a good sense of the Society's mission and appropriate strategies which we often discussed. I always felt that Brandon had the best interests of the Society in mind; and operated on them. Brandon was, simply said a pleasure to work with and made my job as President of the Society much easier. I recommend him without any reservation.
