Member engagement can be harder to measure in trade associations than in professional societies. But that doesn’t mean it’s not vitally important.
Why do some members leave an association while others go on to become board members? Why are some people passionate, vocal advocates for association membership, while others don’t even bother to open emails?
Ever since associations were first formed over a century ago, their executives have had a problem: They have a large group of people they need to take action – join, renew, purchase products, attend events, advocate at the capitol, etc. While their membership may seem homogeneous, even small associations have a great deal of diversity among their members.
