I recently read a blog by Samantha Whitehorne in Associations Now about several groups using a “plus-one” strategy to bring more attendees to a networking event.
Of course, my first thought is how could this work for our CBs and LNGs at their meetings? As we look to encourage early career healthcare professionals to become diabetes educators — what better way than have an AADE member who is registered to attend an CB or LNG event, invite one of their colleagues to the event for free?
It's a great way to introduce them to your CB and LNG members, diabetes education and the AADE community!
As you plan your next events, why not include a "plus-one" option?
