Featuring Scott Seril, CDM – Senior Account Director

Are you looking for actionable insights for running the most effective membership marketing program? The Marketing General Incorporated (MGI) Membership Marketing Benchmarking Report provides important data and analysis about the health of membership organizations and the satisfaction of their members.

What are the primary challenges to association growth?
• How do dues affect membership?
• Why do members join and renew?
• What are the common uses for social media?
• How does your association compare with similar associations?
