54% of associations report their membership has either decreased or not grown at all with the primary reason being that members don’t feel engaged.

YMCA of the Rockies

The YMCA of the Rockies built a branded mobile app with two guides for the several thousand internal staff and guests who needed information throughout the year. With Guidebook, they built an internal staff guide as an onboarding resource and to better inform and communicate with employees. For their external guests, YMCA created a guide to house hotel information, links to local attractions, maps, and even included a communication channel for their guests.

American Marketing Association

The American Marketing Association provides learning opportunities for marketing professionals to collaborate, network and grow professionally. With Guidebook, they were able to build a mobile app for their internal and external events, including their annual conference, symposiums, trainings, and company summits. The mobile app keeps their members informed with up to date schedules, interactive maps, push notifications, and more.

American Massage Therapy Association

The American Massage Therapy Association has used the Guidebook platform to power its national conference app since 2013. Since its inception, the app has been a valuable tool for its 1,500+ attendees and has helped the association nurture its community and drive more member engagement by keeping conference attendees informed with up-to-date information.

Los Angeles Philharmonic Association

With over 2,000 artists and 120 hours of entertainment featured during their one-day event, Celebrate LA!, the LA Philharmonic Association needed a modern way to showcase it all. With Guidebook, they were able to create an event app that enabled attendees to select their schedule and create custom agendas. Sights, activities, and musical performances were also highlighted to give event attendees the best experience possible.
