Description

The forced cancellation of live events quickly demonstrated the importance of robust online communities. Creating more in-depth community engagement is a top concern for membership professionals this year, particularly as the events landscape evolves and members seek new ways to make virtual connections. As we approach a full year of pandemic-life, how can you continue to “surprise and delight” your members with engagement strategies? What are the best ways to understand what your members want from your community? How do you measure whether your strategies are working? 

Our agenda:

The first hour: High level framing of the issue. Learn what the data is saying and key concepts, including the shape of the current environment and the importance of this issue within it. Q & A discussion.

The second hour:  A case study interview with special guest(s) who have successfully navigated this issue, with Q & A 

The third hour: Now that you've done a deep-dive on the issue and heard examples of successful implementation, it's time to collaborate with your peers and plot your solutions. Participate in a break-out discussion around this topic in your organization. Hear what's working (or not!) for others. All solutions will be collected and shared with attendees after the event.

You can also expect several interactive polls, breaks for you to check on family/work, and the opportunity to connect with fellow attendees.  

Attendees in this digital workshop will receive:

  • Data - Access to the Looking Forward survey dashboard, where you can customize results to gain greater insights into your own organization. 
  • Preparation - Pre-event materials to get you thinking about this challenge in your association.
  • Connectivity - Access to the 3-hour workshop, including participation in peer breakout sessions.
  • Solutions - A post-event strategic brief providing analysis of the issue and session outputs 
  • Credit - Certificate for three CAE credits (live attendance required)
  • Resources - Video recordings of speaker sessions

Register for three "Looking Forward Together" workshops and one of them is free, or join us for six workshops and receive two free. Or better yet, join us for all nine and receive three free! Any senior member of your team may register and last-minute transfers are no problem. Life is complicated enough right now, we want this to be easy.
