Getting the Most Out of
LinkedIn-June 1
With more than 450 million users, LinkedIn is the premier
social networking site for business professionals. However,
most users sign up and then wonder, "Now what?" Discover
practical ways to leverage LinkedIn for your association, to
connect with potential sponsors and members, and create
meaningful business relationships.

Write like a Rock Star-June 20
Let's face it-you are what you write. Are your member
communications topping the charts? Or do your members
hear elevator music when you appear in their inbox
and social feeds? Association communicators often
dis-proportionately try to sell the association and its
strengths, rather than helping the member realize "What's
in it For Them?" If members aren't reading what you
send, your messages may be the problem. You can fix
this! This workshop will inspire and teach a few proven
steps to have you writing content to sizzle, not snooze.
Additional fun fact: Up to half of your CAE renewal
hours (40) or CAE application hours (100) may be
completed online with qualifying courses. Visit
education.gsae.org to view the full catalog of upcoming
live webinars and more than 90 self-study courses!.
