The Association Insider: How I Booked 80+ Association Engagements in One Year
Been frustrated in the past trying to work with associations who have “limited non-profit budgets?” Not all associations are equal and navigating the waters to find paid engagements can be a challenge, but tremendous benefits come to those who crack the association code!
Former association meeting planner Cara Silletto, MBA, started her speaking career in 2014, became a professional member of NSA in 2015, and conducted more than 80 speaking engagements for association clients in 2016, which also brought in more than a dozen corporate events that year as well. Since she’s been on both sides of the planner/speaker relationship, she knows first-hand about what opportunities and limitations exist in this space.
Come hear Cara share the secrets she’s learned behind the scenes and along the way about the association conference decision-making structure, how to transition from local chapters to regional and national events, ways she works around limited budgets, strategies for capitalizing on industry education requirements, and more!
You’ll Learn:
  • Various Association Structures & How to Identify the Right Groups to Meet Your Goals
  • Development Ideas for Building Association-Friendly Programs
  • Strategies for Maximizing a Speaker/Association Relationship
Speaker: Cara Silletto, MBA – President & Chief Retention Officer for Crescendo Strategies
