It’s hard work managing chapters across the country and around the world. Here are a few essentials component relations staffers rely on to stay organized and better manage their time.
Component relations can be a messy and complicated business, especially when your association is global and relies on a network of chapters to serve as your “boots-on-the-ground” operation worldwide.
To save time and stay organized, it helps to have technology on your side. Lucky for component relations professionals (CRPs) and other membership staffers, there are many low-cost or no-cost options out there.
In an ongoing Billhighway blog series, Marketing Leads Charlotte Muylaert and Sarah Garrity highlight several membership tools to streamline chapter data collection, design, and content efforts.
These ideas came from an October conversation held with chapter leaders at the Association Component Exchange Summit, where CRPs shared their favorite tools.
