The first Chapter Benchmarking Study sought to shed light on association chapter programs from structure to support to measurement. In this report you’ll find data on a standard practices regarding membership, programming, requirements and metrics for chapters as well as insight on questions such as are chapters still relevant, are associations making changes to chapters and how do we evaluate our chapters.
Four associations share how they use technology and new volunteer models to drive member volunteering. From the 2016 ASAE MM&C Conference session with the American Association of Diabetes Educators, Project Management Institute, NCURA, and Mariner Management.
Within the association community, we have many terms for our member communities that are somewhat vague and too often used interchangeably. This info sheet is intended to provide a guide for understanding the terms commonly used to refer to member communities and their relationship with a lead organization. Sources include Component Relationship Handbook (ASAE), IRS and Association Law Handbook (ASAE).
In 2006, ASAE’s Component Section Council reached out to members to ask how they determined the ROI for their chapters. The results were mixed. That is to say, that hard numbers were rarely reported, but chapters were nonetheless credited with moving mission and members.
