    Take advantage of the benefits gap
    Event Garde
    Associations can easily grow their memberships by offering voluntary benefits, which are traditionally benefits that employers offer as all-employee-paid options. In fact, offering such benefits may be the most effective method for increasing non-dues revenue.

    Emerging hybrid membership models
    Membership Marketing Blog
    Many associations are moving away from a traditional “one size fits all” membership and instead offering a portfolio of membership options that allow a prospect to select a package that best meets their content needs and budget. Hybrid membership models range from a tiered membership structure, to group membership, to an option for selecting either individual or organizationally based membership package. Properly deployed, these new models can help an association increase member engagement, numbers and revenue. If you missed Tony Rossell’s presentation on hybrid membership models at the recent ASAE conference, here are the notes and slides.

    Why you need to adopt a sharing economy to keep your conference relevant
    Midcourse Corrections
    Collaborative consumption is about shared access to products and services. Sharing goods and services is considered smart, social, green and aligns with the values of your next-generation conference participants. Time magazine has identified it as one of the “10 Ideas that will change the world.” The sharing movement is having — and will continue to have — a significant impact on all of us, as consumers and professionals. It’s already creating waves in our industry. How will the collaborative movement affect conferences?

    How to welcome new staff to your association
    Association Adviser
    We read a lot about recruiting and welcoming new members into your association’s fold, but there’s another audience that deserves just as much attention: new association staff. These are the people who take care of the day-to-day operations that sustain an association, so it’s important that veteran staff and board members quickly onboard and sustain them in their new responsibilities.
