The pandemic created great uncertainty in all the areas of our lives and affected as well the associations and their relations with their members. During such a crisis, your members have concerns about the future of your association. Having a crisis communication plan in place will keep your members engaged during crisis, and help you carry your association through any crisis with a renewed sense of purpose and trust.
