2021 Membership and Marketing Conference Update

Dear Students,

We received an amazing outpouring of support for SIEF’s Noble Academy Masters Class program with over double the number of registrants as prior years. The enthusiasm for learning through this program has been tremendous.

The capstone of this program, the in-person Membership and Marketing Conference, was to be held in a hotel that unfortunately is unable to accommodate the increased number of participants due to the available space/safety requirements required for our meeting. Therefore, the Membership and Marketing Conference will not occur in 2021, due to the ongoing Covid pandemic. While we share your disappointment in not being able to meet in November, we also share you enthusiasm for having a great in-person experience that will permit our 2022 Masters Class to safely share a great learning experience. Please note that for students previously enrolled in the 2021 Membership and Marketing Masters Class that completed the four virtual events in the timeline established are eligible to receive their Master Class designation upon attending the 2022 Conference, without having attend another round of virtual events.

The unpredictable trajectory of the pandemic has created a lot of inconvenience for all of us over the last 18 months. Rather than becoming discouraged, we are looking forward to making a new set of plans so that we can accomplish our shared goals. We remain committed to making sure that the Membership and Marketing Conference is better than just “good” but is meaningful and memorable in equipping leaders.

As soon as we are able to complete our arrangements for launching the 2022 class along with the exciting in-person Conference, you will be among the very first to know.
