Fee Schedule

These fees reflect that Balch typically serves those needing high-level parliamentary assistance. However, he is prepared to negotiate discounted services for non-profit, religious and student groups, and is willing to consider negotiated flat fees, in place of hourly fees, for individual projects such as bylaws consultation or preparation of a professional parliamentary opinion. For clients receiving regular parliamentary assistance, he is happy to negotiate retainer contracts.
