An online gathering place for Association Members
Welcome to Member Connect- an online gathering place for Association Members. Modeled after our First Friday art events that showcase a city’s artistic community and allow people a unique opportunity to interact with artists in a social atmosphere. Member Connect will focus on the breadth and depth of knowledge available to members through the association’s thought leaders and editors. A combination of live and recorded education and networking will allow members to connect with one another and engage with experts, live.
- Builds and reinforces a sense of community among members. Also reinforces the importance of the association and the benefits of membership
- Live education and networking events allowing members to connect, engage and learn from each other and experts.
- Provides exhibitors and sponsors a tool to connect and engage with their target market.
- Reinforces the importance of association membership.
- Introduces a new revenue stream with good potential for growth.
