Associations Thrive Pilot

Available on

Welcome to the pilot of Associations Thrive, the podcast celebrating successful associations and their leaders. This podcast is hosted by Joanna Pineda, CEO and Chief Troublemaker at Matrix Group International. In this pilot, Joanna speaks with Leah and Ray from her team, talking about how this podcast came out of a regular showcase webinar that clients absolutely love.

Joanna also speaks with three association industry partners and asks them about the state of associations:

  • James Marquis, CIO of 501Works
  • Teri Carden, Founder of Review My AMS, AMSFest, 100 Reviews and Non Due-A-Palooza
  • Wes Trochlil, President of Effective Database Management

In future episodes, Joanna will interview association executives about the 1 or 2 things their organizations are doing differently to help them thrive, increase membership, generate revenue, and nurture member engagement.
