Membership organizations are being reshaped by powerful economic, social and technology trends. Today leaders are being forced to act because business pressures have reached a critical threshold.

Members are facing disruption in their professions and trades. Industries that you represent are upending; new business models are emerging. The private sector has embraced the membership economy. Rapid advances in technology are changing member expectations.

In this 3-day learning event, meet Seth Kahan, an acknowledged exemplar in Change Leadership and specialist in association strategy.
