DC-PPN Idea Exchange in Old Town Alexandria

When:  May 10, 2017 from 8:30 AM to 10:30 AM (ET)

Here is what one association executive who handles sponsorships said about DC-PPN’s Idea Exchanges: It is wonderful to be in a roomful of people who ‘get’ what we do! And the information exchange is superb.”


  • Do our corporate partner/sponsor programs create a “pay to play” situation? If so, is this OK?
  • Are our associations losing their monopoly as gatekeepers of specialized expertise for members? If so, what are the threats and opportunities our corporate partner/sponsor programs?
  • If your association’s “culture” isn’t supportive of your corporate partner/sponsor program, can you have a successful program?
  • What are the best ways to disseminate your corporate partners’ content to your members … in ways that are beneficial to your members and your corporate partners?
  • What is your biggest challenge or dilemma with your corporate partner program? Share it with the group for a solutions-focused brainstorming discussion.
