Talented Learning Lead Analyst John Leh and Community Brands SVP/GM Tamer Ali presented strategies for continuing education success.

BLOOMSBURG, PA — September 14, 2017 — Independent research and consulting firm Talented Learning today announced that it will team-up with association technology innovator, Community Brands, at a webinar designed to help association professionals learn how they can fuel stronger growth by modernizing their member learning programs.

The Power of Professional Development: How to Succeed with Continuing Education will be hosted by John Leh, CEO and Lead Analyst at Talented Learning, along with Tamer Ali, SVP and General Manager of Education Solutions at Community Brands on Thursday, September 21, 2017, from 1-2 p.m. ET.

“Research shows that 60% of members consider their association a ‘go-to’ source for continuing education. But digital innovation has given rise to many viable alternatives that pose a legitimate threat,” John Leh explained. “We want to help member-based organizations more effectively leverage learning technology as they move forward in this disruptive environment.”

What Webinar Participants Can Expect to Learn

Drawing upon their combined experience, John and Tamer will explain how associations can ensure continuing education success using strategies that retain existing members, win new members and support them throughout their careers. Specifically, they will discuss how to:

  • Strengthen an association’s position as a relevant, trusted source of continuing education;
  • Add value by helping members stay ahead of accreditation requirements;
  • Develop and deliver useful content at members’ convenience;
  • Offer pricing that appeals to diverse audiences, while optimizing revenue streams;
  • Market programs in ways that differentiate an organization, while increasing response from members and non-members, alike.

Throughout the session, they will illustrate how innovative associations are leading the way in professional development best practices.
