Here at The Joy of Membership, we specialize in helping associations, trade groups and membership-based nonprofits run and grow more easily. 

We do that by offering consulting and other services that:

1) help you identify your fastest path to growth;
2) support you as you implement change;
3) provide you with access to specialized expertise and staff resources; and
4) ease the transition from outdated processes to modernized workflows.

How can you tell if your organization could benefit from working together?  

Here are a few common tell-tale signs…

  • You're not sure you're offering the right membership benefits at the right price.
  • You feel like not enough members (or not the right type of members) know about you.
  • People who ought to be members aren't taking action to join.
  • You're seeing a “fizzle effect” after people join. They seem excited at first, but then fade away.
  • Too many members are choosing not to renew.
  • The same members seem to be involved in everything and you're concerned that new people aren't being engaged.
  • You'd like to attract a new type of member – like vendor members, young professionals, or members who would be willing to invest in a higher level tier.
  • Running your membership is taking more time and effort than you think it should.
  • You need additional staff to help run your membership, but you're reluctant to hire an in-house employee.
  • You have new team members, Board members, or Committee members who aren't working in alignment on the most important growth actions.

These problems are easily recognizable, extremely common, and 100% fixable… but the path forward is likely to look different for every organization.
