What association professionals are saying:
As we prepare to onboard hundreds of new members through organizational partnerships, this report made crystal clear that we can’t sit back and hope to sell the value of membership over time. We all know that old chestnut that you don’t get a second chance to make a first impression, but it’s tough to lobby for allocation of resources based on a platitude. The New Member Engagement Study suggests how much a first impression may actually be worth in new member retention, and that is something our senior management team can work with.
