Despatched in 2 business days.


How new membership models can help associations survive and thrive in today's evolving environment.

The era when associations could count on members joining and renewing, even with a relatively unchanging menu of membership benefits, has passed. No, membership is not dead, argues author Sarah Sladek. But associations do need to change their thinking and their models. In The End of Membership As We Know It: Building the Fortune-Flipping, Must-Have Association of the Next Century, Sladek offers practical, proven ways that associations can respond to changes affecting participation such as the generational shifts in the workforce, social changes, and technology-eased access to content and community.

The End of Membership As We Know It explains:

How niche the new competitive advantage is

Why organizational culture has an enormous impact on recruitment and retention

What emerging member-prospects value and want

Why and how to focus on member ROI instead of program ROI

How to craft and deliver compelling benefits rather than features

How to extend your reach

Which emerging models are taking root and showing promise

Providing numerous real-world examples along with specific guidance, The End of Membership As We Know It is a must-have guide for moving your membership model into the future.

Shortly thereafter, she authored Rock Stars Incorporated: Hiring the High-Performance, High-Maintenance Hotshots Half Your Age (2008) and also launched the RockStars@Work Conference, both geared towards bridging the talent gap in the workplace. As a sought-after speaker and consultant, Sarah works with organizations nationwide, providing Next-Generation Intelligence through a variety of mediums: strategic planning, keynotes and workshops, web-based training, marketing campaigns, and special events. Her expertise has been featured in local and national media, including the Star Tribune, Minneapolis-St. Paul Business Journal, National Public Radio, and Fast Company.
