MEMBER BENEFITS

Convening the Conveners Membership is designed to help you meet valuable strangers, connect with industry leaders, and deepen your working relationships with peers. Membership offers you the resources and opportunities to engage in meaningful conversations with fellow conveners that can help you to understand each other's unique strengths, as well as current challenges; identify areas for collaboration; and co-create resources to advance the greater field. In addition, member tools are designed to build an organization’s internal capacity to design and implement effective convening.

Member benefits include:

CONVENING PLAYBOOK

Members have access to our “Recipes for Success,” which includes recommendations sourced from leading conveners around the world, as well as our “Facilitation Encyclopedia,” an online resource available only to members that provides recommendations for facilitation activities with detailed instructions on how to implement each one. Members also have access to our “Member Directory,” and special discounts.


MONTHLY MEMBER CALLS

A series of monthly calls during which members may connect with and update each other on convening initiatives. The regularly scheduled opportunity is designed to make reaching out to peer community members easy and ongoing and deepen working relationships with peers.


MONTHLY WEBINARS

These hour-long virtual convenings are designed to build capacity for member organizations’ teams related to a specific convening topic. The dynamic nature of the webinar encourages peers to share success stories, as well as tips on overcoming challenges. The advice shared is intended to be practitioner-friendly, as such they are often led by peers from the field and structured to provide advice and strategies that staff can easily apply on their own. Topics have included everything from “Disaster Preparedness for Your Convening” to “Best Practices to Build Effective Partnerships.”

"When the Kroc School of Peace Studies at the University of San Diego became a member of Conveners.org we were looking to expand our collaborations everywhere. Soon after joining, their Executive Director came to share with our Women for Social Impact group how to design convening for greater impact, and showed us by example how to deepen connections and collaborations through intentional meeting experiences."
