Daily Buzz: Make the Case for Employer-paid Membership
Here’s how to help members persuade their employer to pay their dues
A professional in your field has expressed interest in joining your association, but there’s a catch: They want their employer to pay for it.
“Consider this your organization’s first opportunity to provide them with value,” says Callie Walker from the MemberClicks blog. Here are some tips you can offer to help potential members set up the conversation for success:
- 1. Explain why membership will be valuable. Employers want their teams to be productive, so start out by explaining how your association will help employees achieve goals.
