We’re seeing some awesome results as of the end of 2022: our retention rate is at an all time high, and membership growth is up 5% over last year and double digits over the past three years. A big THANK YOU for your guidance. We really wouldn’t be here without your help along the way.
Thank you again for all of the work you did on behalf of NSCP. It has been tremendously helpful for the board of directors and staff during our strategic planning process.
Just wanted to let you know that there was a great deal of appreciation expressed yesterday regarding your report – it was timely, concise, on point, and exactly what we needed. Thanks once again for jumping in on short notice, and for providing such an excellent recap.
I really appreciate the support you have provided to IHGOA over the years. Your landscape report was spot on and very insightful. I appreciate your efforts pulling it together!
I’ve known Elizabeth Engel for 20-25 years now. She gets good results, cuts through the BS, and balances short-term activities with longer-term strategy so you can do better working within your current constraints but can chip away at the bigger obstacles that associations often have to achieve much greater growth.
It has been a pleasure working with you. From day one I knew I made the right decision to go with Spark Consulting!
Elizabeth was great and gave real life examples to help put each topic into perspective. I would definitely recommend to my colleagues. One of the best workshops I have been to in my professional career.
Thank you for a wonderful presentation on membership development this week at ASAE! Your presentation was incredibly informative and eye-opening, especially for a professional relatively fresh on the association scene like myself.
You did a great job connecting us learners to the content. I truly appreciated how well you were able to integrate your experiences into the course and provide guidance. It was wonderful that you truly supported an open forum environment where we were able to learn from each other as well as your incredible repertoire of past experiences in developing association membership bases and plans.
Membership is an ever-changing environment, and it was comforting to hear from you that there are productive ways to “go with the flow” by keeping your strategic goals and mission in mind.
Great speaker – very engaging and wonderful content. I came to ELEVATE based off wanting to attend this session and it did not disappoint.
Spark helped NICSA redesign our membership dues structure to a simpler, more logical format that has made it significantly easier for firms to determine where they fit on the membership spectrum. Elizabeth Engel modeled several potential options for us – using real dollars – and helped us pick the best new structure for us to not only be financially secure moving forward, but also to grow membership revenues overall. Since implementing this new structure, renewals are up and benefits package sales are going through the roof. We couldn’t be happier with the work of Spark Consulting – the results are speaking for themselves!
