We think it’s important to ensure association and membership professionals can quickly and easily find information about leading commercial providers servicing the association and membership sector. We ‘walk the talk’ in this area and outline how we are doing this below!
Let’s get the ‘killer questions’ out of the way first:
Q: How do we signpost leading providers to membership organisations and associations?
A: Through our dedicated online MemberWise Recognised Supplier Directory hosted on the MemberWise website
Q: How does the online directory work?
A: The directory is categorised and fully searchable. It includes provider information, contact details and even features sector specific case studies in many profiles.
The directory has been a valued member benefit for the past 8 years and it features a range of providers from CRM providers to Direct Debit bureaus, and from printers to association management companies.
Q: How do I know if a provider has MemberWise Recognised Supplier status?
A: They are likely to display the MemberWise Recognised Supplier logo or badge on their website/promotional literature.
We thought it would be great to hear direct from current MemberWise Recognised Supplier, Aura Creative. CEO, Andy Jarvis, provides an overview of his thoughts to the programme:
“As marketing specialists with a focus on Professional Bodies it makes sense for Aura Creative to be a MemberWise Recognised Supplier. Since the MemberWise network was founded 8 years ago Aura have benefited from their Recognised Supplier status through increased exposure, improved credibility and direct introductions. We are pleased to announce our latest client, the European Society of Cardiology who discovered us as a direct result of the MemberWise Network and the Recognised Supplier Directory. I would recommend anyone providing membership focused products and services become part of the MemberWise Recognised Supplier scheme. You’re sure to benefit from more recognition – and business – as a result.”
The directory continues to be a practical and free tool to access via the MemberWise Network’s dedicated website – www.memberwise.org.uk
