Fostering a sense of community among their members through in-person meetings and events, and online forums is a must for most associations. How to encourage members to engage with each other, and stay active within your association? In this interactive online session, we’ll hear from two association professionals on how they have created engaged membership communities. They’ll discuss the challenges that they faced and how they overcome them, which will help you to engage your community. 

We will also focus on how proactively engaging with recently joined members, can be the first step towards building a membership community.

This session is open to all association professionals. Join the discussion and share your views.

For your best engagement, the event is held in an online video meeting style.
