Next Generation Dues Trends
The membership model created more than 100 years ago is not sustainable in the future. The “fair share’” model used by 80% of all chambers will need to be replaced with cutting-edge models that meet the needs of our emerging member segments. What are the new dues models and how can you serve a diverse membership base with benefits they value?
Explore in this 90 minute course the newest trends in membership dues models, the pros and cons of each, and how you can embrace these trends to serve a more diverse membership that values what you offer. In this session, you will:
•Discover how changing demographics, technology, and time poverty are raising ROI expectations
•Explore the top 5 emerging dues models and how other associations have created new models to serve a more diverse market
•Determine the next steps to take to change your membership model
Cost: $49 to $129
