Such attendance marks a 161 percent increase from the 2011 event.

“Avectra Social CRM is fundamentally changing how organizations collaborate, share and manage information to drive bottom line results and enhance their member experience,” said Patrick Dorsey, Avectra vice president of marketing. “The market’s desire to transform the member relationship from a transaction to more human, relevant engagements is reflected in AUDC’s record growth, popularity and is proof the conference offers real value to our customers and partners.”

The goal of the 8th annual Avectra Users & Developers Conference (AUDC) is to assist Avectra customers in deriving maximum benefit from the Avectra Social CRM suite and the partner community, as well as to promote forward thinking and best practices in the evolving usage of association technology to achieve organization objectives.

In addition to discussing the latest updates on netFORUM and MemberFuse, Avectra will introduce social member profiles, a member renewal center, enhanced automation with the A-Score™ and new social media monitoring features as well as new deeper fundraising and moves management functionality.

“The conference is an annual ritual celebrating our customers’ ability to leverage Avectra technology to fulfill their mission,” added Dorsey. “At each of the seven preceding conferences, our customers surprised us, amazed us and inspired us with their creativity and innovation. I anticipate this year will be the same. To say we are excited about the conference and the future of membership management is an understatement.”

AUDC 2012 will be keynoted by David Nour, author of Return to Impact: Leadership Strategies Every Visionary Association Needs to Stay Relevant in the Social Media Age.
