Ask Your Members to Hit Singles, Not Home Runs

Recently, an association leader who was on a call with our team re-stated the challenge of association member communications with a baseball analogy.

Welcome, Our New Intern, Robson!

Conversation is what brings people together. It’s what brought me closer to my fellow Brazilians, it’s what made the residents in my hall get engaged, and it’s what got me this internship at PropFuel. Communicating without engaging is just broadcasting, and is less impactful in bringing disconnected people together. PropFuel has given me a chance like no other and I can’t wait to engage with them.
