We know that organizations with healthy member engagement thrive, so how do we increase this engagement when environmental factors work against us?  If it feels like member engagement is in shorter supply than ever before, you are not alone!

Members’ needs are changing—they require more than value to engage with your organization; they also want memorable, positive experiences. It is time for every leader to take on the role of CEO - Chief Experience Officer!

My guest this week is Amanda Lea Kaiser, MBA, a keynote speaker and author of Elevating Engagement: Uncommon Strategies for Creating a Thriving Member Community. Through her research, Amanda is at the forefront of exploring how member and attendee engagement is rapidly changing within professional communities.

In this episode, Amanda walks you through how engagement builds from our member’s points of view. No matter the size or type of your association, and no matter your current role, see how you, too, can distinguish and propel your organization. Using uncommon strategies from her book Elevating Engagement, learn how to create an energized and highly motivated membership.
