Ed Rigsbee's Full-Day
& Half-Day Member
Recruitment, Assimilation, Engagement, and Retention Workshop for
Association Executive Organizations and State/Local Societies of Association Executives:
What association executive wouldn't want
their members to become recruitment
Here's the rub. Associations and societies across North
America are struggling with membership retention and recruitment because
they do not know how to prove to members and non-members that membership
is a good business decision. One of the key reasons
for this current struggle is the fact that most associations and societies find it very
difficult to accurately demonstrate their yearly
sustainable real dollar ROI of membership. Simply put, members and
non-members alike are now demanding, "Show me what's in it for me, show
me the ROI of Membership." ROI
More commonly today, association and society members must justify their membership
investment of both time and money; either to themselves or to their
companies. Gone are the days that industry stakeholders join their
association or society just because they should. The Baby Boomers that
"just joined because they should" are disappearing while the
Gen X & Y leaders, in order to join, are demanding real-dollar ROI.
Rigsbee's workshop titled, Want
More Members--Give Them More ROI is
designed to help today's association and society executives to strip
away erroneous beliefs about what today's association and society
members, and their employers, want from their industry organization.
