Just received my copy of the book Membership Essentials from ASAE. The book is a collection of writings by association executives on such topics as understanding your value proposition, membership categories and dues structures, and financial metrics for the membership professional.
And why do I think this book is so good? Because one of the chapters, “Association Management Database Systems,” was co-authored by me!
The book even comes with a CD of sample membership forms and spreadsheets. It really is quite a collection, and a must-have for anyone in the membership management business. So head over to ASAE’s bookstore and buy yourself a copy. And if you like, I can sign it for you.
