Best practices on hosting out-of-the-box chapter programs and events

CHARLOTTE CHAPTER: Membership Guest Passes

SUMMARY: Chapter members received five guest passes to chapter events at the beginning of the year. The chapter configured its website so that a member can register a guest or the guest can register themselves. Guests simply list the name of the person who invited them during registration, and the chapter handles tracking on the backend. During the event, guests have an opportunity to stand up, introduce themselves, and share who or what brought them to the event. To incentivize members bringing guests, the chapter has a quarterly drawing for a free registration to its Day of Learning conference or a one-year chapter membership. As a result, the number of guests attending meetings more than doubled from 2016 (51 guests in 2016, to 120 in 2017), and the conversion rate of guests to members increased by 3 percent (12 percent in 2016, to 15 percent in 2017). The chapter reached a record number this year with 26 guests at one event!

NEBRASKA CHAPTER: Creating a Sustainable Model for Trainer’s Institute

SUMMARY: Due to declining registrations for one of the chapter’s signature programs, Trainer’s Institute, the board decided to reexamine the program’s effectiveness and appeal. The Trainer’s Institute is a program designed to enhance the industry knowledge, skills, and tool sets of chapter members who are new or experienced talent development professionals. The chapter surveyed membership and found that it needed to change the focus from industry trends back to foundational competencies. With this feedback in mind, the board revamped the program, created a communication strategy, set clear expectations for speakers, streamlined the speaker proposal process, and focused on real world applications. As a result of this overhaul process, the chapter saw a significant increase in registration and revenue, and created a sustainable model for the Trainer’s Institute. Lessons learned included the need to include more case studies, set dates several months ahead of time, have a good marketing plan, set expectations for speakers, secure volunteers for the proposal review process, set competitive pricing, and use the participant feedback they chapter receives.
