Welcome to Millennials to Members! In this course you will learn several strategies for growing membership among younger generations.
The Millennial generation is unlike any other generation, in that they have never known life without technology, they are the most debt-ridden, diverse, and supervised generation in history, and they have always been rewarded for participation and not achievement. This generation is the first generation of the Post-Industrial Era and the largest generation in history.

Needless to say, the Millennials are a changed generation. They will want to engage in your association in new and different ways, and they offer more opportunity for growth than any generation that has come before them.

So, let's get started on this journey towards more relevance, more members, and more impact! You'll find your Membership Building Plan Toolkit and Course Roadmap below, as well as a video explaining the course in greater detail.
