Join us on Thursday, August 22, 2019, at 4:00 pm EDT for a webinar featuring IMC USA’s newest Chapter Marketing Toolkit, version 3.0, and get ready to get inspired and motivated for your next Chapter program year!
Our purpose is to give chapter leadership and members tips and ideas for successful program planning and marketing as well as outreach marketing to create awareness for your IMC USA chapter, attract attendees to your events and convert potential members.
The information will be presented menu-style, so each chapter can choose what makes sense for their specific needs, budget, and volunteer resources.
Suggestion: Consider inviting many or even all of your chapter members. You may find some are either curious or even “chomping at the bit” to get more involved and get more value from their membership in IMC USA.
Background: IMC USA created a new Chapter Marketing Toolkit in 2017, and in 2018 it was updated with addenda including marketing personas, a sample Chapter Performance Assessment, eLetters, social media profiles and more.
Now, in 2019, we’ve added the following to the Toolkit:
- Meetings-in-a-Box PPT’s and program descriptions
- How-to include Academy classes in your program line-up
- How-to record hybrid virtual and in-person meetings
- A list of member attributes to expand upon the Personas in v. 2.0
- Reason for Being statement, description and brief history
- Logo use and specifications
- More sample emails
- More sample Chapter Pages
- Sample ads to promote your Members and Chapter Directories
- How to leverage Social Link on the IMC website and other social media to benefit your chapter
- Suggested Technology Stack for Chapters with prices
Copies of the Chapter Marketing Toolkit will be available in advance, so attendees can download and review the document before the webinar. Chapters are invited to ask questions in advance and make suggestions for additional Toolkit information and sections. Send your questions and suggestions to Jennifer Beever at firstname.lastname@example.org with a copy to Don Matheson at email@example.com.
