Global Engagement Community

All associations interested in the concept of enhanced member and customer engagement and relationship strength are invited to join our online Engagement Community. Open forum discussions will allow you to share best practices and lessons learned regarding engagement tactics and to discuss and share the findings of the 2016 Index and the Summit.

Future editions of the Engagement Index will target international and pan-European associations headquartered in Europe, as well as US-based national associations.  Our online sub-communities facilitate and encourage targeted discussions, allowing you to engage in peer-to-peer conversations and crowd sourced knowledge sharing 365 days a year.  Join our community here to gain access to co-creation, collaboration and conversations to inform your engagement strategy.
