Data Driven Decision Making:
An Evidence-Based Approach to Managing Your Association

Webinar • Tuesday, April 24, 2018 • 2:00- 3:30 PM ET | Qualifies for 1.5 CAE


For years, C-suite association executives and Board members have heard about the benefits “Big Data” brings to marketing.  What’s new is how data is transforming association management.

From benchmarking to constituent behavior, data is playing an all-new role in helping associations make decisions about how to set prices for dues and conferences, redesign events, motivate member recruitment, build a stronger culture and much more.

Now, a new webinar from Association TRENDS shows you how to use your own evidence-based approach to make decisions that help your organization grow and thrive.

Register now for Data-Driven Decisionmaking: An Evidence-Based Approach to Managing Your Association. 

In this 90-minute webinar, association marketing and research expert Kevin Whorton shows you how to use Big-Data tools you may already have to make better decisions, build a stronger culture and seize emerging opportunities for growth, engagement and mission success.

The value of a data-driven mindset.  You’ll learn how to replace “low information” debates and discussions with a data-intensive approach that helps boost benefits and reduce risks. Plus, you’ll have the chance to ask your own questions during the Q&A portion of the webinar.

Reserve your space now to reap the benefits of an evidence-based approach to association management, including how to:

  • Learn the right things from peers, using structured benchmarking, competitive intelligence, and through listservs and conference content
  • Incorporate hard data into discussions about how you’re growing, succeeding and increasing engagement
  • Collect data more effectively to recognize what influences trial-and-adoption, long-term engagement and other
  • Motivate volunteers to balance their expertise and intuition with evidence
  • Use a data-driven approach to set conference rates, redesign events, change dues structure and pricing, and determine the best incentives for member recruitment, renewal and reinstatement
  • Lead by example to promote a data-driven culture
