As membership and association professionals we all work hard to deliver deep and sustainable member engagement, value and growth. It's what we do. However, it can sometimes feel non-stop (even through the Summer months!), so I hope the network continues to provide you with practical help and support!

Since our last newsletter over 100 members have attended a whole host of network roundtable events that have covered critical topics including GDPR, Female Leadership in Membership and Member Engagement. We hope to deliver more of these and I would like to thank everyone who attended.

We now ramp up preperations for our next national member focused conference - Digital Excellence 2017. We provide you with a progress update below!

In this issue we feature the Membership Excellence 2017 Wall - A visual resource that will help you ensure sector-wide themes, trends and activities are well and truly on your 'membership radar'. We hope you like this!

Other articles include an update on the latest Guest Blog articles, we signpost a great Insight Presentation video from new membership body, Hiive, on rocket powering new member acquisition, we highlight the latest sector roles and invite your new starters/returners to attend the next SAMP Induction Day.

As ever there's lots going on and I hope our network continues to serve you well!

This year our Official Illustrator, Caroline Chapple, created the Membership Excellence (2017) Wall. It is an illustration that encapsulates all of the key member focused themes/topics discussed/presented during our popular national conference, Membership Excellence 2017.

This is great resource to explore if you are considering improving memberengagement value and growth. We recommend printing it off and including as an item on any member focused meetings you have scheduled over the coming monthss.

Earlier this month we delivered a number of learning and networking events including our 2nd Member Engagement Boot Camp (@ Uk Chamber of Shipping),  a dedicated Female Leaders in Membership evening (in partnership with High Flying Divas, Optimist Consulting & Irwin Mitchell LLP) and a GDPR 360 seminar (in partnership with Latcham Member Engagement).

Thanks to all of our expert speakers including Dr Helen Stokes-Lampard (RCGP Chair), Jane Hatfield (CEO of the FSRPH), Heather Forrester (Research by Design), Gareth Davies (Royal Society of Chemistry), Mark Child (Newable), Mike Hughes (Latcham Member Engagement), Paul Dawson-Hart (Membership 360) and Ian Singer (PKF Littlejohn).

We're now working on our events after the Summer break and so far we have two CRM Select Seminars planned, a Digital Platform Selection Seminar and of course our national digital conference - Digital Excellence 2017.

Please check the Events section of our website regularly as sometimes our events actually sell out before we actually market!
