Your members are your most valuable assets, and one of the principal ways you provide value to them is through your association meetings. But, increasingly, attendees are expecting to have a voice in what happens at your events. Participant-driven meeting formats like Open Space, Conferences That Work, unconferences, barcamps, and World Café are becoming popular models for conferences. In this interactive session you’ll learn why attendee-driven meetings are key to maintaining interest and involvement in association events, and what you need to know to begin to implement this innovative approach for your membership.
