CSAP Virtual Roundtables

CSAP is excited to be offering a series of roundtables for state associations during the summer/fall 2020. These roundtables will provide information as well as a place for members to discuss, share and network.

Membership Recruitment and Retention: A Never-Ending Project

Thursday, August 20, 2020
7:00 pm - 8:30 pm EDT / 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm CDT
5:00 pm - 6:30 pm MDT / 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm PDT
3:00 pm - 4:30 pm AKDT / 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm HST

Membership recruitment and retention are crucial to a state associationís success. The voice of a strong membership can invoke necessary change at the state level for the speech-language pathology and audiology profession. Change at the state level will affect the community we serve, clearly indicating the importance of state association membership. This roundtable will offer a multitude of strategies and tactics to help state associations retain members and acquire new members. For example, using current members to recruit new members will be examined. Shared discussion will include ideas, experiences and practices for successful growth and need for state associations. Additionally, the presentation will illustrate ways to keep current members feeling valuable and create interest among potential new members. Lastly, enlisting feedback opportunities for members who did and did not renew will be outlined as way to promote the benefits and value of membership.

At the conclusion of this session, attendees will be able to:

  • Identify three ways to incentivize new and existing state association members to sustain and increase growth
  • List and describe five recruitment strategies that will result in faster membership growth
  • Discuss how to reach different segments of membership to find out their professional career needs
  • Outline specific platforms to offer continued engagement to current members
  • Explain three benefits of joining your state association

Time-Ordered Agenda:
  • 5 minutes - Welcome / Introduction
  • 75 minutes - Facilitated discussion through guided strategic questions
  • 10 minutes - Questions and Answers
Moderators: Amy Rosonet LeBert, CSAP President; Lyndsey Zurawski, CSAP President-Elect; Debra Burnett, CSAP Past President; Beth McKerlie, CSAP Secretary; Mary Faella, CSAP Treasurer


Registration is FREE for state association leaders (current president, president-elect and immediate past president) if the state association is a current member of CSAP, as well as for current CSAP alumni members.
