Special Interest Groups (SIGs)

Special Interest Groups generally meet every other month, with the schedules determined by the participants. These one hour meetings are a great way to network with fellow association professionals who do what you do!

    For decades, association and service club leaders have struggled with dwindling memberships. The response has been focusing on the "crisis" of membership, rather than the opportunities that this crisis presents.

    This presentation will focus on the following;
    1. How we respond to crisis - in this case the membership crisis
    2. The need to focus on why we exist rather than how we exist
    3. Embracing the future of a world that will be different for associations and service clubs
