Recruit New Members with This New Association Member Benefit

Do you want a new association member benefit that will help you recruit and retain members?

Give your members information that will assist them in their business or career with the award-winning Best Association® Index.

The Best Association® Index allows you to track the key questions for your association’s industry or profession:

  • All associations: Salary trends.
  • Retail associations: Retail traffic trends.
  • Service associations: Pricing trends.
  • Professional societies: Skill trends and job openings.
  • Apartment associations: Occupancy rates and turnover.

“Can’t we do this ourselves?” No, because members are hesitant to share confidential information inside the association where it could be leaked. We are your trusted partner who will safeguard the identity of your members. This puts members at ease and encourages participation.

How does it work?

Each month, the Best Association system generates a questionnaire that can be answered by your members quickly and easily – even on a mobile phone. The questions are consistent so the answers can be compared over time, creating the index. You’ll share the link to the questionnaire with your members.

When that month’s deadline is over, we generate the index and charts for you to post in your member area. We also write a monthly press release that features a top line number to attract attention for your association. This will drive traffic to your association. Even better, it will build membership because you must be an active member to see all the results!
