Overall a really good use of time. The experts gave good advice and items to consider for banner ads, landing pages/microsites and email. The chat with other marketers was also helpful with suggestions and shared frustrations.

Great 4 week Masterclass on association marketing. Each week there was a guest expert who helped critique various aspects of marketing - landing pages, emails, images etc. Super way to get your own orgs marketing 'in check'. I highly recommend this as well as the Digital Marketing Certificate program by Association Academy!

The Association Creative Marketing Masterclass was filled with a lot of great information and was extremely helpful in working to expand marketing at any association with a large marketing team or just 1 to 2 people. There were so many key takeaways and I appreciate the time Chris, the sponsors, and class masters took to put on a very informative 4-week course!
