Format: We're setting our sights of having a single, high impact session this year that shifts the emphasis of the meeting towards diving in on a topic of mutual interest, and bringing in an expert add to the collective wisdom already in the room and help us all make our own organizations stronger.
This year's topic: Membership
Many of our organizations have membership models, and from a cursory survey it seems that most of our membership levels are static or in the decline. We will be bringing in a speaker to talk about membership with the intention of helping us grow membership in our museums and non-profits. Topics to be addressed:
• Nationwide trends in membership
• Is the membership model dead?
• Membership in the age of social media
• Strategies to grow membership
• How does membership fit into an overall fundraising strategy
This will be a seminar and a working session, bring your notebook!
