The Association Engagement Index is a global benchmark study that measures the performance, relationship strength and outcome of engagement tactics as seen through the eyes of associations’ members and customers. It allows associations to evaluate their performance against likeminded associations across multiple sectors and develop new activation strategies to enhance engagement.

Fifty-eight associations participated in the 2024 Association Engagement Index generating more than 15,800 responses from members, customers and stakeholders in 120 countries providing their evaluation of the effectiveness and performance of their association.

Association Testimonial
“We were pleasantly surprised by the strong engagement index and NPS. The engagement was a new metric for us. We’ve shared the results of the AEI report with our senior team and Executive Committee. It was validation to the trajectory we are on and some of the new plans in the pipeline. Thank you very much for providing us this unique insight with the benchmark perspective.”

“The AEI report for ESCP has been highly valuable to understand how members perceive the association as an expert voice in the field and how they wish to engage. Data doesn’t lie and the statistics are a really useful conversation piece.”

"Our community grew over 10% in 2022 due to the membership campaign and the many activities we have launched this year. We learnt that tracking the behaviour of our members and participants at our events is not enough. We are now listening to our young community on social media and involve them more in projects and initiatives."

The timing of this benchmark study will enable us to measure and evaluate how our members want to engage moving forward. ESAE is proud to be a partner of MCI and will encourage all our association leaders to grasp this opportunity now and actively participate, so that the index includes as much relevant data as possible.”
