Senior Professionals Industry Network

SPIN Announces Big Change

Association Now Welcomes Senior-Level Suppliers

SPIN:Senior Planners Industry Network announces a name change – becoming SPIN:Senior Professionals Industry Network, along with the announcement that it now welcomes veteran suppliers into its ranks. SPIN was started in 2008 to fill a need for education and networking for senior-level planners. As the association enters its 10th year, SPIN now welcomes suppliers with at least 10 years of experience to join. Supplier membership will be capped at 33% of overall membership – the lowest ratio in the industry.
 
“We’ve had a 33% supplier ratio at our annual conference, SPINCon, since its inception, and it’s been a great environment for both sides,” said SPIN founder Shawna Suckow, CMP. “We’re looking forward to our membership reflecting the great environment – and participant ratio – we’ve built at SPINCon over the years.”
 
SPIN has grown robustly since its start as a LinkedIn group and now counts nearly 3000 planner members in North America and Canada.
 
“Our strict planner focus has resulted in some really one-sided conversations and education,” said SPIN VP of Communications, Carolyn Browning, CMP, CMM. “It’s time for us to evolve and bridge the gap, to be the place where the industry’s most experienced professionals meet, connect, and change the industry for the better.”
 
While SPIN welcomes supplier membership, it’s on-line community fosters a no-selling environment.
“We want to keep the focus on connections and conversations that build relationships, not just transactions,” said Tracey Smith, CMP, CMM, SPIN Advisory Board member. “Any of our supplier partners who’ve been to SPINCon know that the vibe within SPIN is really special, and we all want to protect that. SPIN is the place to foster real relationships.”

We are not all things to all people, we're just for you--for us--senior-level professionals. By ‘senior’ we mean you’ve been in the industry for 10 years or more. Over the years you’ve likely dealt with robust budgets and belt-tighteners. You’ve had a really good boss or two, maybe a couple bad ones, and now you might even be the boss - running your own company. You may have fretted about losing your job or maybe you’ve actually lost one… or two--it’s okay, so have some of us.

 

Here’s the thing: Whether you’ve got reason to celebrate or vent, whether you need solutions or have solutions, or if you simply want to be with people who get it,  SPIN is your place!
