3rd Annual Membership & Marketing Conference and Masters Class

Don't Miss the 3rd Annual Membership & Marketing Conference and Masters Class

The Shriners International Education Foundation (SIEF) Noble Academy presents its 3rd Annual Membership & Marketing Conference and Masters Class in 2023.

The Membership & Marketing Conference and Masters Class is composed of an in-person conference plus four virtual events that take place throughout the year. Students have the option to enroll in one of two 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 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 above). Students who complete all four virtual sessions will obtain an Apprentice Certificate
  • Strategic Learning Path: Students obtain a Masters Class Certificate upon completion of four virtual events and one in-person conference.
    • Students are auto-enrolled in the strategic learning path upon registering for both the applied learning path and introductory learning path.
