MemCom is the leading conference and awards event for chief executives, marketing and membership professionals from the UK’s most prestigious professional membership associations. Now in its 17th year, MemCom is an opportunity to learn, share, network and celebrate the very best of the professional membership sector.
Conference Theme: ‘Membership 2020 – sharpening your strategic vision’
MemCom 2017 is all about thinking of the future and planning ahead to ensure your organisation becomes and remains as relevant and responsive to both your industry and members’ needs as possible.
But where do you start when it comes to creating and implementing a truly workable and effective strategy to 2020 and beyond?
The Memcom 2017 conference agenda will explore many of these themes across three streams:
Main strategic session: How future proof is your brand strategy?
Parallel stream 1: Maximising technology and content
Parallel stream 2: Delivering the strategy effectively
Keynote Speaker: Peter Cheese, Chief Executive, CIPD
In the main morning stream - 'How future proof is your brand strategy?', Peter will address the changing nature of work, the focus on professionalism and what this means, the impact across the generations and how professional membership organisations need to adapt to these changes.
