Welcome to the November issue of our popular monthly newsletter! We've a lot to share with you, so I've summarised some of the key topics below:

Member Value Project - This month we start work on our next free and practical resource for membership organisations and associations (in partnership with Silverbear). It will focus on how you can 'rocket power' member value to drive improved member experience, participation and growth. Express an interest below!

Digital Excellence 2017 Review - We had a great day with 20% more delegates, high profile speakers and a rather spooky theme. We profile the sector's leading digital focused conference below and advise you 'not to take our word for it'.

MemberWise Connect Library - We introduce you to this great free resource and signpost some great whitepapers and documents from leading providers.

Membership Excellence 2018 - Our next national membership focused conference is on 25th April 2018. We call you to action - be one of our expert speakers!

The Member Value 2025 Project - Express an interest...

We're pleased to announce the launch of an exciting new project that will help you to provide enhanced value to your members in 2018 and beyond.


The result will be significant improvements in member engagement, participation and growth - an area we must, as a sector, ensure is 'rocket powered' by 2025. 
 
Earlier this year we established that optimising member engagement was our biggest goal.  In direct response we created a structured process for associations to adopt. This was delivered via our new  Member Engagement Hub (visited over 10,000 times this year), Member Engagement Bootcamps (attended by 50+ membership and association professionals) and our popular Member Engagement Toolkit (downloaded an incredible 9,700 times).
 
In 2018 we will develop our focus more deeply on how to provide more targeted and enhanced value to your members - One of the key drivers enabling the optimisation of member experience, engagement, participation and growth. This focus is in response to our 2025 deadline when Millennials will take over from Generation X as the prominant generation on the planet. Think ' W hats I n I t F or M e?' and you will know where we are headed!
 
This month we will form our Quality Assurance (QA) Group and in December will hold our Project Initiation Meeting with over 35 membership/association professionals who have expressed an interest in getting involved. If you would like to participate please click the button below! 
 
We are pleased to confirm this project will be delivered in partnership with Silverbear and one further Official Partner opportunity is currently available. For further information please contact Network Chair, Richard Gott.
