Are you ready to take member engagement and retention to the next level? We’re excited to invite you to our upcoming virtual workshop, “Planning Your Member Calendar Around the Member Lifecycle,” where we will delve into strategies for aligning your engagement efforts with the different stages of the member lifecycle.

Join us on August 9th at 2 pm Eastern Time for this insightful session that could transform your approach to member support.

As an AmeriCorps program, you understand that each member brings unique qualities and experiences to the table. Yet, there are patterns to the ups and downs that members go through during their terms of service. Our workshop will equip you with the tools to proactively plan member engagement and training, ensuring you meet their needs when they need it the most.

Why is this workshop essential, you may ask?

Well, during the recruitment and orientation phase, members are in the honeymoon stage, brimming with excitement about starting their service. They view your program and their supervisors through rose-colored glasses, creating a positive impression. It’s crucial to savor this moment and leverage it to lay the groundwork for long-term member retention.

However, reality often hits hard and fast during the next phase of the member lifecycle. If you’re not prepared, members can feel blindsided, leading to disengagement and attrition. But don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! Our workshop will teach you how to anticipate and respond to your members’ needs as they navigate these different lifecycle stages.
