For more than 30 years, DMAI's Membership Summit has supported the evolving role and the impact of the membership professional. This community of partners, inclusive of both membership and partnership roles, targets discussions about changing trends in the destination marketplace, redefining membership and partnership responsibilities to maximize impact, and recalibrating the sponsorship value proposition, to name a few.
The Membership Summit offers:  

  • LEVERAGING SHARED RESOURCES, on-point discussions about developing advocacy, inclusion, non-dues funding models and more!
  • DYNAMIC PEER EXCHANGES, conversations guided by topical roundtables to collaborate and seek higher performance, for example, database management, partnership collaboration, evolving sponsorship opportunities, navigating a dynamic stakeholder group, etc.
  • SPEAKERS EXPERTISE, engaging practitioners to share their best practices and case studies to exemplify strengthening membership and partnership and sponsorship programs.

Who should attend?
DMAI's Membership Summit is designed for professionals who are in leadership and/or management positions within the membership department of their organizations. This event is not intended for general DMO leadership or management.
