Silverbear was delighted to sponsor the second financial review of the largest 100 membership bodies in the UK (The Influence 100 List). This benchmark report was launched at Membership Excellence 2021 last week by Helena Wilkinson Partner and Head of Charities and not for profit at Price Bailey LLP.
This report is based on The Influence 100 List for 2021/22, which is a new list that only covers individual membership organisations. The analysis in the last year’s report included both individual and corporate membership organisations. Corporate membership organisations are now on their own separate list. Therefore the data for this year now only looks at The Influence 100 List for 2021/22 and their latest set of financial statements and the prior year set of financial statements so as to make the data more comparable. The report considers how the financial resilience, sustainability, and emerging trends have changed amongst the sector’s most high-profile membership organisations and associations.
The results in this report have been categorised by membership body type to help senior management team members evaluate and benchmark activity with similar organisations, especially now that the corporate membership organisations have been removed, which tend to have higher membership fees. Some organisations have also been reclassified in their category type, such as a professional body that is also a trade union/regulatory body.
Jeremy Jalie, Business Development Director at Silverbear commented:
" Silverbear is very proud to sponsor this year's benchmarking report and we hope it will be of great use to senior leaders in membership organizations, especially at a time where benchmarking financial data and norms has never been more important."
