Be the face of your organization. Members and potential members may interact with you on a daily basis, so be that go-to guy or gal that delivers excellence in the areas of marketing, communications, and membership opportunity. Attend the MM&C Conference this June 13th to the 14th at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, near our Washington DC hotel. This conference is important for those that want to improve their image with stakeholders, or perhaps utilize new cutting- edge trends, get the latest and greatest scope on technology, and of course top strategies to wheel in the influential people you and your company want to impress the most. It’s not a dream, but a field of solutions at this gathering. You can connect with fellow exhibitors, as well as association executives (in the same boat as you, of course), who can all give you answers and solutions to your marketing, membership, and communication problems.
The 2016 Marketing, Membership & Communications Conference is open for registration. Though Early Bird specials are now closed, you can still register online or onsite. There are member and nonmember rates. For information about membership or Access Pass, please contact the Member Relations Team. You can earn CAE (Certified Association Executive) hours to receive up to 9. But please be advised, you must attend the full conference to receive these hours. On the website, there is a map of the exhibition hall, and a full schedule. Browse what’s available so you come in prepared and ready to learn. There won’t be much time, so organize your thoughts and goals on how you want to walk away from this, and how would you like to feel about yourself after completing this conference. It seems odd, but there is truth in the way of positive thinking.
