    Kyle Sexton
    Kyle Sexton is an award-winning marketing strategist and international speaker and author on the topics of membership development, marketing and innovation. He was recognized in 2011 by Chamber Executive magazine as one of the most influential innovators in the chamber of commerce industry.
    He is the chamber industry's foremost authority on membership tiers, and guides organizations through the transition from a traditional dues method to value-based tiers. His research and methods have been featured in industry publications, as well as national conventions and regional conferences. 
    Kyle's innovative social media accelerator has been featured in The Wall Street Journal and is the author of Follow You Anywhere and ReMembership - New Strategies for Remarkable Membership Organizations. 
    Kyle's presentation will be based on his book, Remembership. Kyle says, "In the five years since first publishing Remembership, I've been working with chambers and associations across North America, implementing effective new tools and strategies that help boards and executives make better decisions about their future. The ideas in this book are important for membership organizations, membership development professionals, and their board members. The tools I've added in this edition are critical to the strategic direction of your team."
