Upon contact by an agency, the nature of the need will be determined to match the agency to the consultant whose knowledge, background, and skills best addresses the specific need. Current members of the consulting and professional team are: Rhonda Arends, Certified Trainer; Raymond W. Empereur, M.P.A.; Jeff Fahrenwald, director of the Rockford University M.B.A program; Andrea Gibbs, Principal, Act2 Strategists; Alan Gibby; Stuart Barnes Jamieson; Randa Noble, Cheryl Peters, James Provenza, J.D., CPA; , and Roger Turnquist, Ph.D. Biographies and areas of expertise for these consultants can be found by visiting
