Welcome to this month's edition!

We're a tad later than normal with this issue following significant focus on our largest national conference to-date, Membership Excellence 2017. A huge thank you to the 450+ delegates/stakeholders who attended.

On the theme of events, you may have noticed that the sheer scale and number of our events has increased massively over recent months. This is in direct response to sector demand/engagement. All our forthcoming conferences/events are featured below.

If you were unable to attend #MEMX2017, fear not, as a selection of sessions and Insight Interviews will soon feature on the MemberWise Video Channel where over 100+ video presentations and interviews are available for you to download free.

This year our network is 9 years old (OMG!) and we've grown an incredible 10 times since 2011. We thought it would be fun to kick off this issue with a a 2011 and 2017 photograph comparison below. Thanks for your continued support and here's to celebrating 5 times growth soon!

In this issue we review the progress of our popular new online community ( MemberWise Connect), feature a ground-breaking member engagement Insight Presentation (delivered by MemberWise & Research by Design), we ask if you could be on of our next Digital Excellence 2017 expert speakers, signpost some great MemberWise Blog articles, feature the latest sector vacancies from our busy Jobs Board and signpost our forthcoming conferences and events.

There's lots of activity taking place at the minute; however we are only as strong as our following, so please do take part!
