Associations: the collaborative hub of the future

Associations: the collaborative hub of the future

In this article we focus on one of the dominant messages that came from both the 2013 and 2014 Associations Matter Studies -  the challenges members face in adapting to the changing work environment.

Our analysis of the responses provided in these studies leads us to the view that a real opportunity exists for associations to address the gaps created by the changing way we will work.

What does a successful association look like?

The results of the 2013 Associations Matter Study paint a meaningful picture of the overall state of the sector, but within the results some associations are doing a much better job of meeting their members’ needs, whilst others fall well below the average results for member satisfaction and engagement.  Here we take an in-depth look at the top performing associations to determine the common elements and attributes that may contribute to their successful performance.
