Broaden the membership base

We have a growing membership. We reach out, connect and dialogue with future members to actively engage with them.

Here for you

No matter how much we grow and change, we’ll never forget the seeds of where we came from.

We reach out, connect and dialogue with future members to actively engage with them. As we welcome new members, from new places, with new needs, we’re finding we share the same values. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. A bigger, better, healthier and happier retirement? We’re here for that.

Increased digital outreach

21 chats about wellness

Our focus on well-being ramped up during the pandemic. Our actively employed members and their colleagues were facing extraordinary challenges in education. So, we called on our network to help us develop a digital wellness series. Our CEO Jim Grieve chatted with seven wellness and leadership experts to create 21 short videos about personal and professional wellness. To date, 3,174 people have signed up to receive the 21-week series.

Virtual conference booth

Each year our team attends dozens of conferences—but not since the pandemic! We missed connecting and felt empathy for the folks who would typically stop by our booth. So, we did the next best thing and created a virtual booth! We had [how many] visitors to the virtual booth since it launched in January 2021. We look forward to getting back to in-person, but the virtual booth is here to stay too.
