  • Explore how Sidecar can assist your association

At Sidecar, we create the professional development tools a leader needs to grow their career and their purpose-driven membership organization, like associations and nonprofits. The skills you’ll learn within our growing community, interactive workshops and from our step-by-step courses will drive innovation, empower strategic thinking and institute cultural changes wherever your career takes you.

We publish educational and inspirational content aimed at encouraging growth, leadership and innovation in purpose-driven membership organizations by learning from creative innovators, and we host virtual workshops to dive deeper into these ideas. We host two annual events: SURGE, is a three-day virtual conference where we bring together the best and brightest to explore the leadership ideas that will create change for the better, and digitalNow, the best idea generator for C-level association leaders where we tackle today’s most critical issues with action-based strategies, transformative technologies and an innovative community

At Sidecar, our values drive us to help provide you with the tools you need to lead your membership organization with purpose.

  • Keep moving forward. We didn’t come here to be complacent. We get it done, but we do so while sweating the small stuff, recognizing mistakes and knocking down goals anyway.
  • Seek diverse opinions. We see problem-solving as an opportunity to hear new voices, which helps us find new answers.
  • Push limits with understanding. No one ever got anywhere worth going without getting a little uncomfortable. We push boundaries, and we find new ones — but respect the time and effort it takes to get there.
  • Ask ‘why?’ Experiment, fail, learn. We ask the first question to learn the next one to ask. We seek lessons from our failures and our victories.
  • Communicate fearlessly. We say what we mean, and mean what we say. We look for the right way to make a point, not the way it’s always been said.

But it’s within our membership where true leaders really grow. Think of Sidecar as your best friend riding shotgun: You’re in the driver’s seat, but we want to help you get where you’re going — smarter and faster. That’s why our membership, individual and team, includes access to step-by-step courses, eBooks, toolkits, videos, virtual networking opportunities and a private networking group where our members learn from each other. 

We would love to connect with you and work together to help fulfill your association’s mission and goals. That’s why we say, if you want to go, go. But if you want to go far, go with Sidecar.
