    Membership Growth: The Possibilities are Endless

    Join us for this late afternoon presentation on the membership growth campaign launched by the American Optometric Association (AOA) in 2017!  Hear about how they approached the process with research, what they learned, how they used those insights to develop a fully-integrated, strategic marketing campaign to jumpstart their own organization’s messaging as well as achieving buy-in from 53 affiliates to take their state membership to the next level. 

    Program Highlights:

    • Learn about the research and pilot campaign conducted to set the stage for the national effort.
    • See how the messaging strategy took shape and how the pilot program learning was utilized to create a national membership growth campaign.  
    • Understand the tactics that brought the campaign to life and how customization played a key role in the sell-in process.
    • Delve into the technology used for campaign outreach and how it was leveraged to motivate and unite volunteers across the country as well as provide metrics to track success.

    Whether you plan to sit for the exam in May 2019 or beyond, you can begin preparing now, earn hours toward the 100-hours of professional development minimum and take valuable ideas back to your association.  

    In order to thoroughly review each domain of the CAE Exam Content Outline, the study group will meet weekly, in a two hour timeslot, for 12 weeks.

    The date/time of each week’s study group meeting will be established based on the consensus of the study group participant’s availability indicated via the survey link below.  Please indicate the most convenient days and times for your schedule.  We understand that not everyone will make every study group.  You will still have a structure with which to work and colleagues to bounce ideas and questions off of each week.
