Ed Rigsbee, CSP Certified Speaking Professional, CAE Certified Association Executive, is passionate, which is quickly evident in his workshops, about helping association and society executives to:

  • See things through the eyes of non-members
  • Shed erroneous beliefs about what today's members want
  • Move associations and societies from simply listing the features of membership to selling the honest benefits
  • Prove that membership is a good business decision
  • Find more real-dollar ROI in both, what your organization currently offers and what else might be available to offer
  • Understand that legislative and advocacy efforts are not the "new member" draw that they might once have been
  • Turn current members into raging member recruitment evangelists...
