Don't just take our word for it. See what some of our subscribers have to say about the MemberWise Network.

The Anatomical Society
Mary-Anne Piggott, Executive Administrator

'Rich presented the MemberWise Network's recent 'Harnessing the web' research summary report at a recent ACEVO Professional Association Special Interest Group meeting. His presentation was superb and he provided strategic 'food for thought'!

British Association of Occupational Therapists
Beriah Chandoo, Senior Membership Development Officer

'MemberWise has proven to be very efficient, supportive and addresses the needs of member organisations such as the British Association of Occupational Therapists. MemberWise provided resources that ensure that we are utilising the most comprehensive tools and guidance as we compile our new Social Media policy and engage with members using web 2.0. Joining MemberWise has been a true asset.'

Chartered Institute of Housing (CIH)

Mary James, Head of IT


'MemberWise is the brilliant idea we all wish we'd thought of ourselves. We all want to promote and share good practice and MemberWise has provided an easy way to do this via forums, newsletters and a comprehensive website.'

Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management (CIWEM)
Jenny Dyer, Membership Development Executive

"I recently attended a Memberwise Meet (Optimising Member Engagement). I just wanted to say that I found it really helpful, and we used some of the outputs in a brainstorming session as a team, which was really interesting. There is so much that we haven’t previously thought of. The website is brilliant as well. I have been looking at some of the advice sheets and presentations and have made some notes on these as they are really interesting and such a good resource to use!'

Health Care Financial Management Association (HCFMA)

Amanda Sampson, Marketing Executive

‘MemberWise was incredibly helpful when I was seeking advice on the development of the HFMA Annual Report. Not only did the MemberWise Team contact me out of hours to assist me with the despatch of my initial message to the membership of memberwise, the team also suggested I approach sister network, MemNet, to access an even wider audience. The replies from both memberships have been very helpful. I would therefore highly recommend joining both organisations and utilising the services on offer.'

Institute of Administrative Management
Abby Wright-Parkes, Director of Membership

'MemberWise has helped me numerous times. I have benefited from discounted services, such as the great event elephant online booking software. In addition I have found the large online community of those working in membership bodies as a valuable source of advice and also fresh perspectives on membership issues. It is one of my most useful and helpful Linkedin groups'

Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM)
Hilary Hall, Director of Customer Service


'MemberWise was useful for understanding the variety of CRM/database providers supplying the sector.'

Institute of Parking Professionals (IPP)
Linda Austin, Development Maanger

'I have been a MemberWise subscriber for a number of years and I have found the resource of great value in terms of establishing good practice information and advice. I would recommend any developing and forward thinking membership professional to join.'

PODi, the Digital Print Initiative
Tony Hodgson, Director

'We had a really useful best practice session with MemberWise. We received some great tips that will certainly help our organisation run better conferences in the future!

Feedback from the 2012 MemberWise Recruiting and Retaining Members During Challenging Times conference:


'Thank you very much for a really lively day where you engaged really well with the delegates. I learnt a lot and now have a lot to digest!'


ASI Europe

Clive Funnell, UK Marketing Communications Executive

'There are many excellent networking and event groups in the Charity sector, but not in the Associations sector. MemberWise is the exception

Steven Grieve, Chief Executive Officer

'Membership Plus would like to stress the value and awareness the MemberWise Network has brought to us in the Membership Sector. We would most certainly recommend that other suppliers looking to develop their profile utilise this great resource.'

kevin Rowdon, Head of Client Services

'We work with the MemberWise Network because of how established and professional the Network is set up and run; it gives us a great opportunity to be able to communicate and engage with many like-minded membership bodies/organisations that our registered with MemberWise and be able to offer our services to them as and when required. It also keeps us up to date with what’s going on: Training, Conferences, latest news stories and any networking opportunities.'


'We recommend engaging with the network (from a supplier perspective) because MemberWise is the only network of its kind set up that gives you the opportunity to communicate and interact with organisations within the professional membership sector.'

Marketing Manager, Cheryl Pearce

'Richard and his team really understand the issues and challenges facing other membership professionals, being membership professionals themselves. Not only that but the network offers well researched information in a variety of ways, through resources, social media and events, so there is a lot of choice as to how we can engage and add value.

We recommend engaging with the network because it is on the cutting edge of relevant hot topics for membership organisations, and as a supplier we are proud to be part of the ongoing conversation.'

This award is granted to the top 10% of organisations (of over 500,000
