Membership by Subscription
Association expert Mary Byers says, “If you’re not discussing subscriptions internally, you should be. They are the rage — and I believe they are here to stay in some form or another.” A panel discussion at our 2019 Midyear Meeting talked about different membership models and creative tactics from bar associations across the country. In case you missed it, you can catch a recording of the discussion on Facebook here.
