MemberShift Strategy Tour

is Now Happening!

You Don’t Want to Miss This!


Membership organizations are reporting higher levels of disengagement and decline than ever before.

Sarah Sladek speaking at a conference

That’s a fact. It’s also a fact no one really knows how to solve the problem. If they did, the decline would have reversed long ago.

Membership is not a recognized subject of expertise. There are no degrees, defined requirements, career paths, or educational tracks. This means the strategies essential to member engagement and growth have remained largely unknown, overlooked, guessed, or left to chance. It also means associations have continued to borrow best practices from business and non-profit models or relied on the traditions of the past.

A new membership strategy is urgently needed, and Sarah Sladek has discovered it.

Sarah delves into the new strategy in her latest book, MemberShiftThis workshop is your opportunity to learn and immediately begin to apply many of the turn-around strategies Sarah shares in her book, MemberShift.
