A Message from Erin Higgins, JHI Marketing Manager
Effective marketing takes a combination of strategy, experience and creativity to effectively achieve marketing goals and show results. This year, the Headquarters marketing team focused on launching initiatives and member communication pieces to further enhance your experience as a member, and provide additional benefits from JHI.
Headquarters supported the vision of the Board of Directors and the Committees to create various marketing pieces, such as the revitalised website, which has become the essential hub for member communications and updates. JHI Connections and this monthly e-newsletter, JHI Assets, were also introduced to help keep members updated on new developments from JHI and provide valuable industry information. We are currently working with the committees to launch educational webinar sessions—branded “JHI” so you know they are credible speakers—updating you on the most relevant topics for your membership and industry.
These are just some of the many ways we’ve launched marketing pieces to help facilitate more member benefits. I look forward to supporting JHI achieve more marketing successes again this year. Our team stands ready to support new initiatives, and maintain and improve existing programs as the global business climate evolves.
Please reach out to me with any comments or questions.

JHI Members Relax and Recharge in Austria
