There is Value in Connecting Members
I've been very fortunate to be a business member of the Canadian Society of Association Executives for over ten years. My CSAE membership automatically came with my sales territory, which was mainly the Canadian not-for-profit sector. I soon learned that belonging to CSAE was more than just your usual membership. It was an excellent opportunity. Here are some learnings that I have had that you can apply when developing the value proposition for your members.
Member Profile - Kelly Aslanowicz, Senior Manager, Business Development
Share with us the CPHR elevator pitch:
With more than 5700 members working at all levels of HR, our association provides resources, support and leadership to Human Resource professionals. We are the voice of the HR profession in BC and the Yukon.
What's the biggest challenge facing CPHR?
Speaking from a business development perspective, one challenge is that there is currently limited awareness of our association and our designation with those that hire and manage HR professionals. Human Resources plays such an important role in overall business strategy and culture. We want senior executives and business owners to understand the influential and important work our members do. We also want them to know how having a Chartered Professional in Human Resources can profoundly affect their bottom line.

The Collaboration That Put a Suicide-Prevention Message on the Road
The chart-topping rapper Logic's latest hit is striking for a few reasons. For one thing, its title, "1-800-273-8255" is unusual for a pop song. But this specific phone number, for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, underlines both the intent of the song, which also features Alessia Cara and Khalid, and the hard-to-ignore emotions that went into the tune. And in the midst of National Suicide Prevention Week, taking place September 10-16, the song has become a top-five hit on the Billboard Hot 100.
Membership Hack: Pay-What-You-Can Members
How to hack it? This year, SHAPE America, the largest U.S. association of health and physical education professionals, tested a bold membership offer: SHAPE allowed prospects to pay what they can in dues. "It's a pretty revolutionary idea," says Senior Membership Manager Matt Rankin, CAE. Members could opt in to a free digital-only, open-access membership, or they could name their price.
