Workshop: Strategies to Drive Long-Term PAC Engagement

13 Dec, 2018

May 16, 2019
10 a.m.−12:15 p.m. ET
Washington, DC or Virtual

Incentivizing long-term political involvement requires a thoughtful, developed strategy that continually evolves. Does your program have a strong benefits and recognition structure in place to keep recurring donors engaged while attracting new PAC members? Does your existing incentive program need a refresh? Join a roundtable discussion on building a strong plan that both motivates PAC eligibles to engage and rewards more seasoned donors for their involvement.

This program is eligible for 2 PAC credits toward the Certificate in PAC & Grassroots Management .


10 a.m.             Engaging Valuable Stakeholders in Your PAC Strategy

When you have many stakeholders – association leadership, PAC board members, senior management and member companies – identifying where to target your time and resources can be challenging. In this session, we’ll explore:

  • The impact of various stakeholder groups’ involvement and how it translates into PAC success
  • Strategies for motivating different populations across seniority, age, industries and more
  • Building a peer network to advance your program and bring new donors on board

10:45 a.m.       Roundtable Discussion

Discuss your struggles and share your successes with association and corporate peers.

11 a.m.             Networking Break

11:15 a.m.         Boosting Your Incentive Strategy: Motivating Your Eligibles to Give

Motivating donors to give – and then to stay engaged – requires a thoughtful, developed incentive strategy that evolves over time. In this session our speakers will explore key tactics and considerations for building a robust recognition and rewards program, including:

  • Evaluating donor club and giving level requirements, as well as offerings to get the most bang for your buck
  • Assessing your eligibles’ priorities and determining what motivates them
  • The most effective ways to communicate the value the PAC provides to your eligibles and existing donors
  • Best practices for integrating your incentives program into solicitation campaigns and PAC communications

12 p.m.             Roundtable Discussion

Gain ideas from others about motivation strategies that work and what’s fallen flat.

12:15 p.m.        Adjourn
