  • A membership for your brand on one of our four 100-company Councils
  • 45 annual peer-to-peer collaborative calls
  • Summer and Winter Member Meetings (+ registration fee)

Key benefits you also receive:

  • A brands-only community exclusively for decision makers with substantial professional experience and social media sophistication
  • High-value content you can’t get anywhere else
  • Current, real-time information — before other sources can deliver it
  • Better answers to critical questions from private, off-the-record sources
  • Market intelligence and peer benchmarking
  • Risk avoidance
  • Vendor screening

And you also get some really important things that are a little harder to quantify:

  • A trusted place to ask about vendors before signing those big contracts
  • When a crisis happens, we’ll help you craft a better plan, faster
  • When new tools and technologies emerge, we’ll be the first to share hands-on experiences and strategies
  • The ability to benchmark your program against other big brands across a wide range of industries
  • You won’t get caught by surprise when big, unexpected changes happen
  • A network of social media leaders you can count on for support

Everything’s included.

Membership in comes with no upsells, ever. The only thing you’ll pay for are your annual dues and meeting fees. You’ll never get a pitch to buy a report, a trade show booth, or consulting services.

Space is limited.

There are four Councils in, and each Council is limited to 100 companies. This limit keeps the connections strong and the conversations candid.

With a membership you get:

A brands-only, vendor-free community
