Resetting and Designing Member Value in 2022 Through an Association's Digital Offerings

Jul 29, 2021 9:03:49 AM / by Maria McDonald posted in Member Benefits, Member Satisfaction Survey, Benchmarking for Associations

In a recent whitepaper, “Designing the Future of Associations,” produced by Digital Now, 81% of association executives stated that they expect data science and analytics to have a significant impact on their sector. As we look towards the last half of 2021 and the beginning of 2022 this stat is not surprising.  As we’ve learned from many of you, your association is facing increased competition on the member front, due to the catapulted digital transformation of many industries.  Pre-pandemic, many associations were the central hub of information and data for its members.  As sponsors, vendors and associations alike in all industries ramped up their digital offerings, this created a new competitive threat that many associations simply had not faced before.  In addition to having this increased competition, membership is  decreasing as noted in the 2021 Membership Marketing Benchmarking Report. 47% of associations reported a decrease in membership over the previous year. Yet, on average 43% of an association’s annual revenue is derived from dues. So, what can associations do to address these new concerns?

Compliance Should Never Be the Focus of Your DEI Journey

Compliance plays a role in every organization and often there are programs or actions that are a direct result of ensuring compliance. It is fine if these programs involve transactional only items, but DEI is more than transactional. It is about the culture of the organization, the success of the team and ultimately the bottom line. Compliance may be able to address the diversity part of the equation, but that is not nearly enough to thrive it in today’s environment.

I learned in one of my finance or economics classes (can’t really remember which) that economic and stock market growth can sometimes be as much a psychological exercise as it is a physical or fundamental exercise. Meaning, when people feel good or positive about something, it can have a strong impact on the performance of that activity. This is true in many areas of our lives. I know that when I stand over a golf ball on the tee box that my confidence meter is never completely neutral, it leans one way or another and typically my tee shot follows.

Association Benchmarking is Evolving

Benchmarking over the past few years has been evolving, and COVID-19 simply catapulted us into the era of the shorter more frequent studies. As a benchmarking company in the association industry, we at Dynamic Benchmarking have seen the needs of our clients shift to deliver smaller, more time sensitive, studies periodically throughout the year.  However, they did not want to sacrifice what we refer to as the "me" data or the personalized benchmarks for their members. They wanted the simplicity of a basic survey, but they did not want to give up the benefits of benchmarking.

The Story Behind the Data

Feb 18, 2021 1:25:20 PM / by Joe Bates posted in Key Performance Indicators, Benchmarking for Associations

We all know that associations are the hive for member data and thus understand the need and usefulness of benchmarking programs. These programs allow associations and nonprofit organizations to gather industry data on behalf of their members as an independent, non-competitive, third-party. Implementing a benchmarking program is not new to the association industry.  Neither is the fact that this is something a company can't afford to do on their own, much less legally. Associations must be the coordinator for benchmarking platforms for their members. That usually means reaching out to tech vendors and consultants to assist with the data collection, analyzation and reporting. If the association chooses to use a benchmarking platform such as Dynamic Benchmarking, participants can compare their data against those of all other participants. They can even do a large amount of filtering to compare themselves against specific groups, and generate automated personalized and industry reports. Still many times the question remains, once you’ve collected the data, what do you do next? The answer: Tell a Story.
