In case you haven’t heard, on October 22, we’ll be hosting MC Thrive: Onward and Upward, a one-day virtual educational experience for association and chamber professionals.
The event will feature seven sessions (summarized descriptions below), collectively worth five CAE credits.
Join us (and 500+ of your peers) to hear and learn…
The Pursuit of Happiness at Work and at Home
Research shows that 53 percent of Americans are unhappy at work. And when you’re unhappy at work, you’re less likely to perform at your peak. (It’s really hard to be successful when you’re just really miserable.)
So what’s the solution? In this opening keynote, Kiki Ramsey, CEO of The Positive Psychology Coaching and Diversity Institute (PPCaDI), will discuss how to be more resilient in the face of workplace stress, how to be more fulfilled in your current position, how to channel a more positive mindset, and more!
Beyond Brand: An Inside-Out-Approach to Organizational Engagement
If you’ve ever struggled over the years with questions surrounding the value and relevance of your organization, you’re certainly not alone. In fact, in this new pandemic-laden landscape, those questions may be more pressing than ever.
In this session, Brian Riggs, Co-Founder of Riggs Enterprise Corporation, and Stacey Villano, Director of Strategy and Client Experience at Riggs Enterprise Corporation, will discuss the importance of revisiting your organization’s purpose and value, and how to use that as the pillar for creating new experiences that will transform your organization.
Expect the Unexpected: A Programming Reality Check
In a matter of days, the traditional model of programming, events, and sponsorships for member-based organizations went right out the window...and it’s continuing to change with the ongoing uncertainty surrounding COVID.
So what’s an organization to do? Now more than ever, associations and chambers need to revisit their non-dues revenue strategies and find new opportunities to move ahead stronger, which Jason Ebey, IOM, CEO of YGM Total Resource Campaigns, will talk more about in this session.
All Things Membership: What’s the Buzz?
You’ve got questions about successfully managing your organization...and these pros have answers! In this game-style Q&A, you’ll hear from three of your peers on “what’s hot” when it comes to charging (or not charging) for virtual events, offering (or not offering) free memberships, handling this new phenomenon of “Zoom fatigue,” and more!
Association Law: What Every Association Executive Needs to Know...and Then Some
Jeff Tenenbaum, Esq., Managing Partner at the Tenenbaum Law Group, is one of the country’s most experienced and notable association attorneys. In this session, he’ll be answering some of your most pressing legal questions (in layman’s terms), including questions surrounding meeting and event cancellations, liability for office re-openings, federal tax exemptions, and more.
DEI Journey: How Associations Should Look at Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
You already know that diversity makes the world (and the industries you serve) better, but how much thought have you given to your organization’s own diversity strategy? In this session, Trevor Mitchell, MBA, CAE, CDP, Executive Director/CEO of American Mensa, Ltd. and the Mensa Foundation, will help you steer the ship to gain a better understanding of diversity, equity, and inclusion in associations. He’ll help you to explore current best practices in DEI and how YOU play a role in your organization’s efforts.
Leadership Lessons Learned: Fireside Chat
Have you ever caught yourself saying, “I wish I knew then what I know now”? Well we assembled a small panel to help with some of that. In this final, happy-hour session, you’ll hear from experienced leaders on what they wish they knew earlier in their careers. Dave Coriale, CAE, President of DelCor, Mark Sedgley, President and CEO of MemberClicks, and Duncan McCreery, Chief Experience Officer at MemberClicks, will be sharing some of their best advice, so come prepared to learn a few key leadership lessons.
