Your Roadmap to Growth (Part 1 of 3)
Show Notes

It's your official welcome to Season 3 of the Joy of Membership Podcast!

In Season 1, you heard many interviews with membership leaders, exploring why they’re here, how they are being helpful to their audience, and what they’ve learned along the way.  In Season 2, we explored lots of different CAREpoints...where what you do and how you do it makes a difference.

And now, in Season 3, we’re embarking on the next leg of our journey together: your roadmap to growth. Just like a real-life road trip where there is an itinerary to plan, things that you need to pack in your suitcase, and adventures both expected and unexpected that come up along the way, the same is true about your road trip to growth.

The Journey is my signature program to help membership organizations boost member attraction without getting bogged down by internal conversations, lost in tech, or overwhelmed by change. The end result? Faster joins, more enthusiastic engagement, and renewals that happen without hesitation.

But beyond industry experience and education…
Joy Duling is the calm voice you want to have in the room when you, your team, or your board is overwhelmed by ideas and options.

She's a trusted resource at the other end of an email or phone call who knows the answer, or can find the answer, when it's not clear what to do next in your approach.
She's a planner of systems and driver of progress that helps your organization achieve stretch goals.

She's a gifted facilitator of conversation, collaboration, and constructive growth.

And she's approachable and results-oriented,  which makes it easy to shake loose of the old and start fresh on the new.
