Happy New Year!

Welcome to our January 'Kick Start' edition of our monthly newsletter!

A New Year brings with it a great opportunity for us to stop, reflect, develop and grow.

These improvements are likely to include a mixture of organisational, professional and personal development to ensure we are 'skilled up'and ready for the future!

This issue is inspired by new beginnings and the concept of 'kick starting' change and development in early 2017.

This month you have 3 calls to action: 

1) If you have not already completed our Harnessing the Web 2017 survey it is open until 13th January. Participants will receive a complimentary copy of our research summary report and VIP invitation to our offical launch event in February.

2) Block out some time to read our free MemberWise Member Engagement Toolkit (in partnership with Research by Design and ASI Europe).  
3) Explore Membership Excellence 2017 (our next national conference) - A limited number of Early Bird and Group (3 for 2) discounted places are now available.  
I hope that you read this first issue of 2017 with interest and I hope the network continues to serve you well!
