Money Game: Beyond Dues/Investments KAED

Money Game: Beyond Dues and Investments for EDO and Chamber Funding


Doing more with less is a way of life in economic development and chamber organizations. Yet, organizations run on money. At some point more money is needed. This webinar is about both with a hard focus on new revenue sources.

No organization has enough money even in good times. With the down economy, many organizations have lost or seen significant reductions as key investors have cut back or withdrawn support. All the weaknesses show in a down economy.

In other words, this webinar is about ideas that should have been implemented yesterday… little changes and big moves that can make a difference in the top-line revenue.

This webinar is about an entrepreneurial approach to organizational funding. Non-dues revenue should kick 15-30% to the organization’s top-line revenue.

When was the last time you went on a search for trapped value or crafted a strategy to monetize an asset?

Now more than ever, chambers and economic development executives must be creative in finding revenue to support the organization’s mission.

David Rumbarger and Barbara Smith have created a culture of creative revenue development. Learn from their mistakes as well as their successes.

It is never too late to begin a revenue diversification process.

    • An entrepreneurial approach to funding
    • 18 funding strategies beyond membership dues and investments
    • Monetize valuable assets
    • Big three non-dues sources
