ASSOCIATION NEWS


Export-Import Bank of the US needs your immediate support
MTBC
The charter for the Export-Import Bank of the United States — the federal agency that provides export credit to businesses — will expire Sept. 30. If lawmakers don't take action this month to extend it, the trade financing or loan guarantees that helped facilitate $37.4 billion in U.S. exports in 2013 will cease to be available. The 200,000 American jobs that the Ex-Im Bank supported will be threatened. Businesses that depend on the bank's financing in order to export will be out of luck. And a federal agency that actually pays for itself and generates a return for taxpayers will become a needless casualty of a political fight.

The 2 C's of agile
Pragmatic Marketing
Mark Lawler writes: "One of the most frustrating things I've heard over my career is that 'agile is something that software developers do.' It is said dismissively by those who are happy with how things are today and see no reason for changing how they operate. It ignores all the success agile teams have had in software the past decade and in other industries including architecture, marketing, video production and even the auto industry."

Women, you don't have to be loud to be good leaders
Mashable
It was a Friday afternoon in New York City, chilly inside the auditorium. Women crowded toward the front of the stage, their goodie bags spilling Luna Bars and lipstick samples into the aisles. For the first few hours of the conference, a parade of charismatic executives in color-blocked dresses had urged attendees to "speak up," "sit at the table," become vocal members of the C-suite.
