About our Programming


Yes, all our events and programming are free! (In the future, there may be a charge for in-person events to cover costs, but we’ll cross that bridge when we come to it.) By joining our community, you get access to so many benefits, including:

  • Discussions on Guild—the secret sauce that binds our community
  • Regular monthly roundtable meetings – currently marketing, events, content/product development, and “On the Offense” interviews with people who are moving their businesses forward
  • One-off topics meetings and webinars – discussions of timely, topical issues of importance
  • Member benchmark surveys
  • Coming soon: In-person and online conferences and retreats, peer-to-peer groups (think Vistage but without the hefty fees), and more.

  • De-Risking a Risky Process: Renewd's New Product Development Masterclass

    October 19, 2021  11:00 am - 2:00 pm

    95% of new products fail… but if we don’t innovate, we die. So what gives?

    Over the past five years, we’ve studied hundreds of new products launched by Associations, Membership Organizations, Publishing Companies, Event Organizers, Media Companies, and Industry Brands. There’s definitely a “right” way and a “wrong” way to go about launching a new product.

    How would you like to see what works and what doesn’t so you can maximize the impact of your new or re-launched product?

    Join us for Derisking a risky process: Renewd’s New Product Development Masterclass to take the risk out of building and scaling a new product for your audience.
