Description

The Membership Section Council works to support ASAE’s professional interest section for association membership professionals (and association professionals with membership responsibilities) by creating valuable resources, providing feedback on appropriate ASAE educational opportunities and creating community within the Membership Section. Membership specialists with an interest in presenting at conferences or writing articles on membership topics are encouraged to apply. The group is also looking for more representatives from small-staffed (10 or less) organizations. This group requires two face to face meetings each year with the Kick-off Meeting being held on Monday, June 3, the day before ASAE’s 2013 Marketing, Membership & Communications (MCC) Conference.  As the council helps chose the proposals for each MMC Conference, council members are strongly encouraged to attend the conference, June 4 – 5.

             

NOTE: New appointees to the council are required to attend the in-person Kick-off Meeting for the group on Monday, June 3 in Washington, DC. All new applicants should make note of this date.

 Appointments for the 2013-2014 Membership Section Council will run from June 3, 2013 to early summer 2014. 


Projects for 2013-2014 include: 

  •  Identifying pertinent membership topic areas of focus for the 2014 MMCC and working with ASAE staff and other appropriate volunteer groups to select proposals for the conference.
  • Submit proposals (or identify potential submitters from outside the council) to other ASAE conferences.
  • Generate topic ideas, identify content authors and create content for resources focused on assisting association membership specialists including blog posts for Associations Now and e-newsletter articles.  
  • Coordinate members of the membership section and council to help ASAE analyze and categorize content using ASAE’s new online taxonomy
