Navigating New Waters

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

Engage Volunteers

The volunteer of yesterday is different than the one of today who will be different in the future. To be successful in engaging members as volunteers, we have to match our volunteer programs to our volunteers’ aspirations and interests.

Develop Leaders

Leaders are neither born nor made. More precisely the recipe includes a little of the right DNA, a choice made, and effective nurturing. Associations can have an impact on the latter two with great results.

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.

Manage Associations

We say “manage” but it more closely resembles conducting. We see our role as a conductor to bring the best out of each of the volunteer leaders. But that also means that like an orchestra conductor, our job is to wear many hats, many of which are behind-the-scenes jobs.
