Society Street Webinar Series


Society Street brings together leaders and future leaders of professional and academic societies to look holistically at their organizations, and to foster discussion, learning, and the sharing of insights and experiences of transforming learned societies into modern and relevant organizations. COVID-19 put a temporary stop to in-person conferences – and instead, Society Street implemented a program of webinars. Thanks to our sponsors, we are able to offer these webinars at no cost to attendees.

How To Approach Income Diversification for Societies


Revenue diversification is likely already in your society or association’s current strategy, and clearly the key to a healthy future. But where do you start? Society Street’s first event for 2021 covers: how a society can approach revenue diversification; a case study; a conversation with panellists who are product creators.
