What about a series of “case studies” to reinvigorate your accomplishments story?
Consulting firms regularly develop case studies to document a particular accomplishment on behalf of a client and the steps that led to that success. Now is a fantastic opportunity to evaluate and get more specific about how you assisted a member.
Although, it’s important to offer general insight into legislative and regulatory efforts, it far more interesting and powerful to describe how you helped a member navigate new rules. Tell the story about how you helped a company draw thousands of visitors to their web site; generated hundreds of leads for another company through your exhibit program; trained a number of members of a company staff on a particular issue; and how you distributed weekly news briefings to more than 2 dozen members of that company. See what I’m getting at here? Tangible. Specific. Relatable.[et_bloom_inline optin_id=”optin_28″]
These types of detailed examples or case studies on how you helped members might be a bit more beneficial than the vague and generic “weather report” on advocacy, education, and networking. Hope this is helpful. Let me know if I can help you discover this new approach.
