“It was the best of times; it was the worst of times!” Every idea may not be a successful idea but we tend to learn from them. Come to the swap with success stories as well as those that have flopped to share.

Membership Retention: Rock stars and Stink bombs! Membership retention is the lifeblood of any association. The good news and the bad news is that there are a million different tactics you can undertake to retain members. The goal of this session is to get as many good (your good may be someone else’s bad) and bad (your bad may be someone else’s good) membership retention tactics presented in 75 minutes. Join us to share your ideas as well as hear from your membership colleagues.

Presenters: Rhea Steele, CAE, Information Systems and Technology Director, CCSSO Scott Oser, CAE, President, Oser Associates

Presenters: Jeff Shields, FASAE, CAE, Executive Director, NBOA Brent Mundt, Director of Sponsorship Strategies, MGI

Prepare for the “Summer Slump”

Presenter: Abner Gonsalves, Director of Marketing, AWOHNN 2:00 pm Super Swap concludes
