The event from September 27-29 will bring together over 450 association executives and partners for innovative discussions and expert-led education sessions.

Heather McNair, Higher Logic's director of client success, will lead the session, "Innovations in Volunteerism". Heather will highlight emerging trends, including:

  • Building a program to support new models
  • Tracking and rewarding volunteer participation
  • Leveraging engagement for improved retention

Higher Logic recently launched its new Volunteer Manager system, which completely streamlines volunteer management and replaces manual solicitation, selection and tracking of volunteers with automated processes, to save staff time and yield better results. It includes extensive reporting and executive dashboards that show member participation and a direct ROI calculation of true dollar value for every volunteer activity.

The system makes it easier to manage any volunteer program, of any size. Organizations can embrace different types of volunteerism to become more inclusive, improve member satisfaction, increase retention and ultimately build a greater sense of community.

TSAE is a CAE Approved Provider, and the New Ideas Annual Conference is good for 8.5 CAE hours. For complete event details, please visit TSAE's annual conference site.
