We will be launching our most recent book Managing Member Networks: Strategy, Volunteers & Funding at our Spring Conference on 14 May 2014 at Woburn House in London.
The research project
that this book is based upon was supported and shaped by six leading professional bodies. Written by Christina Williams and Andy Friedman, this book is a study of how a wide range of professional bodies are managing, financing and supporting their member networks with an insight into best practice and successful approaches.
The rise of social media does not seem to have diminished the importance of physical member networks offered by professional bodies such as regional branches or special interest groups. Our research shows that these kinds of networks are enduring and that participation is increasing for many organisations. However, they are not without their problems.
This book is intended to be informative for anyone responsible for managing member networks for a professional body. Our intention is to investigate the various challenges involved in running networks and the different approaches that might be taken.
