Making it Rain: How to Drive Non-Dues Revenue Central Room In today’s association climate, dues revenue alone is not enough to maintain a viable, healthy organization. Establishing a range of diverse, sustainable revenue streams is one of the most important issues facing our Associations today. This is certainly a philosophical shift for many groups. This interactive discussion will include a range of non-dues revenue topics including corporate partnerships and membership categories, expositions, meetings, affinity programs and much more. Come prepared to talk about what has and has not worked in your organization. Moderators: Ron Rosenbaum, Sporting Goods Manufacturers Association and Scott D. Oser, Scott Oser Associates
Evolving Membership Models East Room In her book, “The End of Membership as We Know It,” Sarah Sladek argues that associations must shift their thinking and their models to adapt to the way participation is changing as a result of the generational shifts in the workforce, social changes, and the technology-eased access to content and community. How are these three issues affecting your membership? What new membership models are you exploring? Come with your challenges and successes for a discussion around evolving membership models. Moderator: Ms. Barbara J. Armentrout, Marketing General Inc.
