Here’s just an inkling of what we’ve accomplished in 2022 … aka our 20th anniversary! Check out our last post for a more detailed list.

We did it! We sailed through our 20th anniversary year with the wind at our back and open waters ahead. We decided to pause and reflect on what we’ve accomplished and it’s amazing!

Drum roll … Mariner is celebrating its 20th Anniversary this year! January 2002 set sail with a belief that there was a better way to support chapters and chapter volunteers. We launched an association management company focused on serving chapters – that is the state or regional group that is part of a larger industry or profession.

For many of us working in component (chapter) relations, there are days when our answer is a resounding yes, and others where it’s more of a whispered maybe. The fact is that the role of components (e.g., geographic groups chartered or affiliated) is changing which in turn impacts the answer for each association.

Midsummer and the fall looks no clearer than it did in Spring. What’s ahead for chapters? In many ways, we may be looking at a renaissance of sorts. Or the end of the road. Two events explore this.

We at Mariner have collectively and individually meditated on how we could be part of the change so needed to defeat systemic racism and truly live the words Black Lives Matter. And, we have chosen to be one of the conversation catalysts for the Association Chapter/Components sector on this issue.
