Members Helping Members Discussed at NAHB Conference
Teaching members to help each other — which helps membership retention and recruitment — is one of the tips that will be discussed at NAHB’s 2007 National Membership Conference for state and local association membership professionals at the Westin Hotel in Charlotte, N.C. on Oct. 12-14. Ann Garvey, executive director of the Eaton Area Habitat for Humanity in Charlotte, N.C. and an associate member of NAHB, will lead the discussion.
“I have been attending the conference for several years, and I have never left without receiving new tips on recruiting, retaining and growing membership,” Garvey said of the conference.
Associate member Steve Monroe, president of SME & Associates in Jamestown, N.C., believes the conference is likely to trigger enthusiasm and motivate people to do their best when it comes to retaining members.
“It’s all about ideas that generate enthusiasm,” Monroe said. “People will be addressing how to bring in new members and better serve those we already have during discussions throughout the conference”
In addition to Garvey’s presentation, the conference will feature a discussion on “breakthrough thinking,” a satirical look at business and office life, a pre-conference workshop on customer relationship management and more
