    Marketing is an extremely broad topic and is often one of the first items on the chopping block for associations managing tight budgets and time constraints. Regardless of whether your organization has a dedicated marketing team or the function is absorbed by another role (or not managed by anyone at all... *gasp*), every person at the organization has a role to play in impacting the organization’s marketing efforts. This presentation will explore several areas of marketing common to all associations and present questions to consider and resources for impacting positive change for your organization. As a result of this presentation, participants will:

    • Recognize the top 10 areas of impact marketing for associations
    • Develop an action plan for addressing critical issues for each area
    • Learn about tools to help association staff in addressing marketing needs
