We do this by delivering value to association executives in the Commonwealth of Virginia by creating a community for collaboration, education, and professional growth.

In their seminar, "The Marriage of Meetings and Membership," Dan and Nicole Ratner of The Next Steps, LLC will explore the relationship between an organization’s meeting planners and its membership team to grow membership enrollment as well as attendance. Learn about the four types of constituents, the In It ForEVER™ Principle (which focuses on the four major needs of members and attendees: experience, value, engagement, and relevance), strategies and techniques for collaboration between meetings and membership stakeholders, and ideas and activities to implement at meetings and conferences to support membership development. The luncheon presentation will be "Attendees & Members Are In It ForEVER."
