The Association Insider:
How I Booked 80+ Association Engagements in One Year
January 25, 2019
8:15 am – 12 pm
11104 W. Broad Street
Glen Allen, VA 23060
Been frustrated in the past by trying to work with associations with “limited non-profit budgets?” Not all associations are equal and navigating the waters to find paid engagements can be a challenge, but tremendous benefits come to those who crack the association code!
Former association meeting planner Cara Silletto, now President & Chief Retention Officer for Crescendo Strategies, started her speaking career in 2014, became a professional member of NSA in 2015 and conducted more than 80 speaking engagements for association clients in 2016, which also brought in more than a dozen corporate events that year as well. Since she’s been on both sides of the planner/speaker relationship, she knows first-hand about what opportunities and limitations exist in this space.
Come hear Cara share the secrets she’s learned behind the scenes and along the way about the association conference decision-making structure, how to transition from local chapters to regional and national events, ways she works around limited budgets, strategies for capitalizing on industry education requirements, and more!
- Various Association Structures & How to Identify the Right Groups to Meet Your Goals
- Development Ideas for Building Association-Friendly Programs
- Strategies for Maximizing a Speaker/Association Relationship
PLUS… Limited Optional Afternoon Sessions
“Tap into My Big Brain”
Immediately following the workshop Cara has generously offered to stay until she has to leave for the airport for a limited number of 15 min sessions over a group lunch where you can get her advice for YOU on your topic, approach, or anything regarding selling to associations!
Space is very limited – only 5 spots – and offered first to Professional Members and Candidate Partners. Once they are gone, they are gone!
There is an additional fee of $30 and lunch (assorted sandwiches and drinks) is included. Lunch starts at 12:30 pm and the first Tap Into My Big Brain Session starts at 12:45 pm. Location is across the street at Gather @ Short Pump, 2400 Old Brick Rd.
