How Do You Get Guests to R.S.V.P. to an Event?

From Kori Gorman, Tom Stulberg, Ruby Sohi 

From personalized invites to registration landing page links, here’s how event pros across Canada push guests to show up.

“We have been most successful sending invitations via an email that is linked to a registration landing page. We employ a professional designer who makes our invitations look attractive to set the tone of the event. Guests are able to add the event to their calendar and receive reminders closer to the date. If a guest has not responded in a timely manner, they receive catchy reminders leading up to the event.”Christina Lupkoski, director of operations and accounts, Substance Group, Toronto

Planning to Run a Vote Online? Here's What You Should Know

From Lawrence Lewis, CSAE Blog

Associations depend on elections and other kinds of voting activities. Board members must be elected, bylaws amended and financials ratified. However, it’s not always easy for associations to conduct these votes.

It can be quite costly and time-consuming for associations to plan in-person votes. Mailing ballots to the membership is also a labour-intensive activity. And, even after putting in a lot of work, the end result may be low voter turnout.

However, by paying attention to these best practices, associations can help their membership cast votes in order to get an accurate and fair result.
