The recent Non-Dues Performance Report concluded that a lack of internal interest is the primary roadblock to successful business endeavors. Let’s explore internal roadblocks and share potential solutions and ways to overcome these obstacles. Bring your ideas and examples to share and learn together.

PAR Member Meet-Ups are 30-minute sessions for industry professionals to collaborate on the ideas, skills and solutions our association teams need to move forward. What to bring: current work challenges and tips to share with our PAR community!
