Dean West, FASAE will address the Council of Education and Scientific Society Executives Annual Meeting this July in Baltimore, MD. The program, titled “Explicit Content (Strategy) Warning” discusses the creation and monetization of content strategy. In Looking Forward™, the nation’s most comprehensive scan of the association business environment, 53% of association chief staff officers indicated they were pursuing content strategies to improve information impact and 85% were creating more robust content. From thought-leadership strategies to content-based revenue models, Content Strategy is the most innovative tool being pursued by professional societies to create deeper, more meaningful relationships with members to improve Mission impact and business results. This presentation, built on research into association content strategy, lessons highlighted at the recent Association Laboratory Content Strategy Summit and case studies from professional societies will introduce best practices in creating, sustaining and monetizing content strategy.
