How does an art museum grow a membership base when admission is free? Angela Pritchett, digital marketer at The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, will reveal how the 85-year-old organization re-branded their membership campaign in 2018 to emphasize why people are members and how much they value that shared community.

In this session, you will learn:

  1. How The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art created a culture of philanthropy by pivoting from membership perks to member impacts.

  2. Communicating a “manifesto” of united beliefs.

  3. Listening to the front line helped shape content across all channels.
