You may be wondering how you could possibly make an impact for your association in the big sea of social media. Nielsen* tells us that 84% of consumers reported always or sometimes acting based on personal recommendations. That makes you a pretty big fish in the sea of 4 billion.
Creating Rolodex-inspired micro-volunteer opportunities
When it comes to volunteers, some folks shine by doing the heavy lifting of organizing and project management. Others make a similar impact just by opening up their phone directory. You likely know the players in your organization who seem to know everyone in the business. Futurist Malcolm Gladwell calls these people Connectors. When asked to do a small and specific task to support their association, Connectors will happily place a call or tap out a text to someone they know. With very little effort from the member, a valuable connection is made and you’ve onboarded another volunteer.
At AH, the associations we work with are extremely important to us. We take copyright and trademark infringement seriously to protect our associations and their members. Our associations’ members pay their dues and meet membership requirements earning them the right to promote their affiliation with the association and in many cases display the association’s logo.
