          Membership organisation's are reporting higher levels of disengagement and decline than ever before. This is largely because membership as a strategy remains largely unexplored and unknown.

          Until now, associations have been largely forced to rely on business models, learn by trial-and-error, or make assumptions about what fuels vibrant membership experiences and cultures. Critical mistakes have occurred for that simple fact.

          Sarah Sladek has been researching membership trends for two decades to clearly understand what drives member engagement. This is your opportunity to learn some of the strategies and insights shared in her latest book, MemberShift: Why Members Leave and the Strategies Proven to Bring Them Back.

          In this webinar, Sarah will address some of the most common questions, myths, and areas of membership misunderstanding including:

          • What’s our value proposition?
          • How do I know if members are engaged?
          • Why won’t young professionals join?
          • When is the right time to raise dues?
          • Who on our team should be responsible for membership strategy?

          Sarah will also answer some audience questions on the spot!

          Consider this a crash course in membership strategy and a unique opportunity for a meet-and-greet with the author of MemberShift!
