Navigating New Waters

Our mission is to foster excellence in association volunteerism, leadership and member communities.

Engage Volunteers

Yesterday’s volunteer is different than today’s who will be different in the future. To be successful in engaging members as volunteers and help them become leaders for the association, we must match our volunteer programs to our volunteers’ aspirations and interests while providing the training and nurturing needed.

Build Chapters

Chapters appear to have a powerful impact on association membership levels. Developing chapters as partners requires a chapter strategy that focuses on key metrics and provides meaningful support.

Grow Communities

Associations need not cede their place as home for professional community if we place member collaboration and engagement as a priority, seek new models and invest in developing volunteers to lead us.

Boost Learning

We invest in our members and our volunteers yet do we invest in ourselves and our staff? As professional association execs, we are essential partners for our members and volunteers. Check out Mariner’s array of resources, free webinar series on components, Component Exchange (CEX) event, and our new volunteer liaison training.

Making Connections

We are an association management company supporting volunteer leaders. We are also a consulting resource for associations who want to explore deeper how to engage members, empower volunteers, and build member community.
