It's not easy to create an engaging digital experience. The Internet is evolving so fast that consumer expectations are always changing; they demand more from the organizations they deal with, including member associations. Going to meetings, reading paper-based content, that still happens, but what happens even more is visiting websites, and reading, sharing ideas and information with peers in social networks and communities. The digital experience is a critical component of the customer experience strategy for member associations.

We look at ways to address customer service with online tools that make customer service simpler and more efficient.
