Frequently Asked Questions

2nd Annual Membership & Marketing Conference and Masters Class

The Shriners International Education Foundation (SIEF) Noble Academy presents its 2nd Annual Membership & Marketing Conference and Masters Class scheduled for 2022. Students have the option to enroll in one of three certificate programs, each representing a different learning level, allowing students to select the learning path that corresponds with their level of experience.

Which path is for you?

"I am looking for it all! I am pursuing or already in a leadership role and want to make sure I am equipped with the skills and best practices so that I can implement these strategies at my organization."

  • We recommend the Strategic Learning Path. Students will attend four (4) virtual events and the in-person Membership & Marketing Conference to establish a well-rounded knowledge of membership and marketing. As an added bonus, students who choose this program will become a cohort that can be leveraged for sharing and implementing best practices long after the education has concluded. Students who complete all the virtual events and attend the in-person Membership & Marketing Conference will obtain a Masters Class Certificate. (Enrollment for the Masters Class Certificate is now closed. If you wish to attend the four Virtual Events and the In-Person conference, please select Fellow Certificate and Apprentice Certificate on the enrollment form.)

"I have been in a leadership role for a while and need opportunities to compare best practices and network with other leaders."

  • We recommend the Applied Learning Path. Students will attend the in-person Membership & Marketing Conference to learn how to apply best practices and network with their peers to compare what works. Students who attend the in-person Membership & Marketing Conference will obtain a Fellow Certificate.

"I am thinking about pursuing a leadership role or I am a new leader and need some hands on information to get started."

  • We recommend the Introductory Learning Path. Students will learn membership and marketing concepts with opportunities to build on skills by attending four (4) virtual sessions (see dates below). Students who complete all four virtual sessions will obtain an Apprentice Certificate
