Stand Out: Turning Your Continuing
Education into a Competitive Advantage

Webinar • Wednesday, December 20, 2017 • 2:00- 3:30 PM ET | Qualifies for 1.5 CAE credits

Continuing education programs can help associations grow their membership and generate non-dues revenue. No wonder so many associations offer these programs! In fact, between live programs and virtual eLearning, even good learning programs can have a hard time getting attention and standing out from what competitors offer.

That’s why “good” is no longer good enough! You need to take your learning program to “great.” To do it, you need to define the strengths and gaps in your current program. You need to troubleshoot common problems that are sinking so many other learning programs. And, finally, you need to take a strategic approach for developing content, formats and value unique to your association.

Here’s where to start.

Register today for Stand Out: Turning Your Continuing Education into a Competitive Advantage

InspirEd’s founder and chief learning strategist Tracy King shows associations how to stand out in a crowded and competitive field by turning continuing education programs into impactful experiences. She’ll give you a proven model for elevating the quality and relevance of your existing learning program and turning it into a powerful competitive asset.

Benefit from real-world lessons learned.  In addition to learning how to take your program from good to great, you’ll walk through three case studies that offer real-world insights for troubleshooting common problems and setting your program apart from the competition. Plus, you’ll have the chance to ask your own questions during the Q&A portion of the webinar.

Register today to elevate—and differentiate—the value of your learning programs, including how to:

  • Understand the threats and opportunities in today’s association continuing education market
  • Upgrade your nonprofit’s image from “program provider” to “learning leader”
  • Apply a strategic model to create next-level education programs that give you a competitive edge
  • Use this model to address three key challenges facing today’s association education programs

Remember: when it comes to competing for members and non-dues revenue, the quality of your education program can work for you—or against you. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn strategies that give you the edge!
