What is the Best Association Confidence Index? It’s your association’s own benchmarking or sentiment system.

With the Best Association Confidence Index, you can easily create indexes specific to your association’s area of focus. Imagine having your own “State of the Industry” index!

The basic version is free and includes:

  • Current and predicted business conditions.
  • Current and predicted employment conditions.

Imagine the value you could add to your membership if you had a custom version. For example, you could track and report:

  • Apartment associations: Occupancy rates and turnover.
  • Retail associations: Traffic and sales per square foot.
  • Service associations: Leads and closing rates.
  • Professional societies: Trends (technology, skills, etc.) and job openings.

The possible customizations are limitless. If you would like to explore a custom version, contact Dave Stevens at 317-726-0788 x200, or send us a question. Learn more below.


How does it work?

Each month, the Best Association system automatically generates a questionnaire. The questions are consistent so the answers can be compared over time, creating the index. You’ll share the link to the questionnaire with your members.

Below is one of the questions in the basic version. Click here to see an example of the basic questionnaire with all four questions (opens new window – close it to return). You can also have us customize the questions to meet your members’ specific needs.

At the end of each period, the Best Association system automatically generates your charts. You can then share these with your members via a special link.

Below is an example from the free version which helps your members see the current conditions and the trend: “100” is when everyone is reporting “Excellent” conditions, while “0” is when everyone is reporting “Poor” conditions. With this information, members can plan their business and career moves thanks to your exclusive member benefit! Learn more below.
