Value Proposition Audit
Oftentimes an association’s value proposition hasn’t changed in many years, offering the same menu of benefits to prospective members. Through a comprehensive analysis, we’ll help determine what matters most to your target audience and refine your value proposition to make a stronger impact.
Membership Dues Review
Whether a merger has resulted in a dues cap or your dues simply haven’t been reviewed in several years, a stagnant dues structure can result in lack of revenue growth. Our third party audit provides an analytical approach with factual, third-party data to warrant a different course.
