Webinar 1: I need to take my association’s event virtual. Now what?


Associations have had to make drastic changes in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis, including cancelling or postponing annual conferences and other larger in-person gatherings. We understand the impact on your operations as these events generate significant revenue, and members rely on them for the exclusive continuing education, peer interactions, and networking opportunities they provide.

With fall event season looming, associations are feeling pressed to launch virtual options quickly to ensure business continuity and deliver the value and services their members expect. The question is, how?

This webinar, hosted by Janet Davidson, of enSYNC, and David Horne, of D2L, will share guidance and practical tips to help you understand:

  • Concrete next steps you need to take when making the transition to virtual delivery models
  • How to appeal to broader, dispersed audiences with blended learning even if you can host an in-person event
  • Ways to get members, sponsors, and other stakeholders engaged with what you’re doing

Webinar 4: Increasing membership engagement via effective learning strategies


Associations are facing an increasingly competitive landscape, and the need to clearly differentiate to show value to members has become the number one priority. Providing membership with on-demand access to innovative learning experiences can be that differentiator. Turn members into advocates by providing continuous, self-directed learning opportunities no matter where they are and what device they are using. This allows them to build a closer connection with the organization, while supporting their individual career advancement.

In this webinar, you will learn how to use modern learning approaches to turn members into advocates while:

  • Improving membership retention and promote growth
  • Increasing overall engagement with members
  • Measuring the success of learning programs for ongoing success
