Your Chapter Leaders in One Place

Do the people who lead your chapters have strong association management skills?  Do they have the resources to turn ideas into action? Do their relationships with other chapter leaders enhance support for both chapter and national objectives?

With a Chapter Leadership conference, all the answers can be “yes.” In fact, associations find that the training, networking and inspiration shared during these conferences makes all the difference in how well chapters operate and the value they provide to members and the national organization.

Here’s how to design and deliver your own conference—and remove any obstacles to participation and success.
