MemberWise Announces MemberWise Connect
The MemberWise Network has announced the launch of a new free online community for membership and association professionals called MemberWise Connect. It will enable 4,000+ association and membership professionals to connect, share best practice, network with peers and solve challenges in a secure and private environment.
MemberWise Network Chair, Richard Gott, commented, “The time is right for the association sector to have its own online community where we can all connect and share. LinkedIn Groups seem are ‘dying a death’ based on the recent changes to online functionality and other private forums simply do not deliver the level of online sophistication and functionality associations need or expect. Today we change that with MemberWise Connect. I hope the sector welcomes this great new development.”
MemberWise provides best practice information/advice on a range of member focused topic areas including membership, marketing, communications, public/member relations and digital. Network resources include a dedicated website, video channel, blog, Member Engagement Hub, Recognised Supplier programme, and popular programme of national conferences and events.
MemberWise Connect is delivered by the MemberWise Network’s Official Online Community Partner, Higher Logic, who host online communities for high profile international membership organisations and associations including the American Society of Association Professionals (ASAE). Higher Logic President, Andy Steggles, commented, “We are excited about working with MemberWise to deliver a much needed online community in the UK/EU. We’ve been working in collaboration with network over the past year and are now pleased to launch in the United Kingdom.”
Higher Logic claim to bring people together by giving their community a home where they can interact, share ideas, answer questions and stay connected; their goal to help organisations achieve deeper engagement and meaningful interactions with members, customers and prospects.
MemberWise Connect features a dedicated online community, jobs feed, guest blog and members can personalise their online professional profiles and message other members via secure online messaging. http://connect.memberwise.org.uk
