February 14th, a day that is loved and loathed all over the world. All one must do to prove this, is take a peek at one of their social media feeds and there will be a variety of posts negative and positive about this celebrated day. Whether you are a Valentine’s fan or not, it serves as a good reminder to organizations of all types and sizes to take a look at the ways they are showing the love to their clients, members and employees throughout the year. For associations, this is even more important because our purpose is to deliver for our members. Members expect the association to know their needs and fulfill them with the same level of service they provide their clients. But with a diverse membership base, how does the association management team know that ALL members are feeling the love?

Do you feel like you have more than enough time to do everything you need to do? Do you feel like you have just the right amount of time to do what you want to do? If you are shaking your head no, you feel like most busy professionals. Not only are we feeling stressed about our lack of time, our members are too. I know this because I’ve talked with over 400 association members about the challenges in their professional lives.
