It’s hard to believe that it’s that time of year again. I recall writing a membership update just before last Christmas - and being profoundly proud of the membership community we had built together. In December 2018 I was reflecting on the build and launch of the MyDMI membership offering earlier that year, and I was totally taken aback by just how much appetite our (then) 36,000 members had to invest and engage in our member offering.
I closed out the year with a promise and a resolution, that we would bring lots more great content and benefits to members in 2019, and I am delighted to announce that we have delivered above and beyond that - as we change the game and support you, our esteemed members, in being the heroes and leaders in this ever-changing digital landscape.
2019 The Promise vs Our Delivery

This year, I’m excited about what is now our 47,000+ strong member base. We are a thriving global community. We started the year still in the phase of building out our membership offering - adding great content, live webinar sessions, doing system upgrades and building our community forum - we close out the year with a community that is transformative and transformational.
