Speaking for Associations

The priorities facing the associations industry have been evolving due to changes in technology as well as differences in generational needs. Some challenges facing this industry include:

  • Technology is ever changing, which can reshape the industry and alter membership dynamics
  • Gen Y and Gen Z members will be more eager for change, while older members will want to maintain a foundation of what already works
  • All have faced the challenge of proving their value proposition to current and prospective members
  • Creating a culture where members will join in and contribute to create a sense of belonging and loyalty among members

Regardless of these challenges, Marcus believes the time for growth is now, especially for those companies and brands willing to learn about today's customer and connect with them in a totally new way.
