Save the Associations | Virtual Summit Replay

Given the current state of the world, we’re hosting a LIVE virtual summit

A 2.5 hour web-based conference — featuring a special interview with Susan Robertson, CEO of ASAE, and two panel discussions with associations who are responding to COVID-19 with an exceptional commitment to their members.

This Save the Associations Summit is a free virtual conference giving association professionals from all over the world the opportunity to learn best practices and engage in meaningful conversations around crisis management. The interviews are pre-recorded, so panelists can participate live during the broadcast, engaging with event attendees and answering their questions via an interactive chat window. All event attendees can communicate with other attendees through the chat feature, as well.

Save the Associations Webshow

This is a web show featuring interviews with association leaders who are leading and inspiring change initiatives to better serve their members. Research indicates the majority of associations have been observing flat or declining membership for the past decade. Yet, in this era of unprecedented disruption, there are association leaders who have risen to the occasion, making radical changes to ‘save’ their associations from decline.
