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
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
- 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
