Featured Talks & Clients

We have an exciting line-up of featured talks and speakers for 2022, starting with keynote speaker Teri Carden of ReviewMyAMS. 

Teri Carden


Teri Carden is an association junkie and self-proclaimed girl geek in normal girl’s clothing. After several years of
experience in the association technology role, Teri answered a need in the association space by building, a trusted site for executives to provide end-user reviews of their association management systems (AMS). Teri still manages ReviewMyAMS all while tackling the day-to-day of building the software company, 100Reviews which is a tool that allows associations to spin up their own review sites to generate revenue and deliver value to their members. Teri is an early adopter, mum of almost 2 grown teens, disrupter, and explorer. She’s the kind of girl boss who does stuff others are too afraid to try.

Three New Ideas: Not Your Grandma's Non-Dues Revenue
While average associations get the biggest chunk of annual revenue from membership dues, reliance on dues revenue is waning. According to the last ASAE’s Operating Ratio Report, over the last 65 years, the percentage of association revenue from dues has plummeted. To continue to effectively fund operations while holding dues increases at bay, many organizations are focused on driving non-dues revenue.
But we can’t depend on our members to be satisfied with the same-old, same-old concepts. At the same time, millennials are taking over workplace buying decisions and have new expectations about engaging with the organizations they belong to. Plus, your sponsors and advertisers demand fresh opportunities that will keep them digging in their pockets to support your association. There’s untapped and unexpected value right at your fingertips. Let’s dig in on the possibilities!
