MemberWise Event eUpdate
Driving Membership Forward. Together.
October 2015
Issue No 52

Welcome to the latest issue of the MemberWise e-newsletter!

We start off the new month with a number of notable network successes to report.

Our popular LinkedIn Group has welcomed its 1,400th member, our PR/media and Data Protection themed seminars were attended by more than 50 membership and association professionals, and visits to our Membership Sector Blog are at an all time record high thanks to our recent contributors (who this month write about harnessing the web).

A common thread across the blog articles is the importance for all of us to lay 'solid groundwork' via inclusive planning, thorough review and the delivery of targeted/relevant online  content that will engage and provide value to our members.

As you may be aware, our Harnessing the Web 2015 conference will take place on 4th November in London and it will cover a wide range of topic areas including online content, planning and review.

I hope you read this issue with interest and hope you can make it to the conference!
