Engage or die: The fate of nonprofits and associations
Pantheon
Could trade associations, trade unions and other membership organizations be going the way of the newspaper — a dying model struggling to keep pace with its customers/members? Several signs indicate the old model of membership no longer works. Those working in professions or on behalf of causes no longer join associations out of obligation or a need to belong. But that doesn't mean they aren't interested in their field or cause. They are constantly seeking information and networks in multiple places. Today and in the future, associations must have a value proposition that recruits and retains members with the latest news and information and a customized set of benefits.

Associations' board diversity challenge
Associations Now
In an ASAE benchmarking study, 77 percent of boards reported having no voting members under the age of 30; 39 percent had no board members of ethnic or minority groups; 7 percent had no female members. The research also shows that only 19 percent of associations have a written diversity policy for board members, and that the lack of ethnic diversity is more pronounced at smaller organizations and trade associations. But if we know anything about diversity, we know that numbers aren’t everything.
