How's your association attitude?
Avectra    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
You can have the biggest technology budget on the block, but if your association's culture and attitude is stuck in the 20th century, that slick AMS or online community is only going to take you so far. More

Preparing members for change
The Common Thread Blog    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Most people, members and organizations are resistant to change. It's up to us as association professionals to come up with a plan to make sure members are not only capable of dealing with an upcoming change, but that they buy into it and see the value it will bring to them as a whole. More

Why leaders should practice forgetting
Wired 4 Leadership    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
When it comes to common knowledge, leaders have a lot to learn about forgetting. Why? Because forgetting is essential to finding new, innovative solutions to long-running problems and challenges. It's easy to reach into one's memory, grabbing a solution that worked well on a similar problem years ago. Guess what? It's probably not a similar problem in today's world. More

Will associations become filters for digital overload?
The Huffington Post    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
They are the backbone of virtually every profession: Doctors; accountants; engineers. Even turn-around specialists have them. They are professional associations. Their members are a veritable who's who of thinkers and doers, which puts associations squarely at a powerful crossroads of content and curating. More

XYZ University    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article

As economy revives, nonprofits need better workforce planning
ASAE    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Nonprofits expect their voluntary turnover rates to double in 2012, according to the newly released Nonprofit Employment Trends Survey. And since the same survey shows that three-quarters of nonprofits do not have a formal strategy for retaining staff, some organizations may be sailing into danger as the economy picks up steam. Not only may they see their top talent walking out the front door, but they may also be faced with skill and competency gaps, particularly at the entry- to mid-level career mark, that can affect the organization's mission.

Policies and strategies
Risky Chronicles    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The association industry continues to discuss the future of associations. Some believe the social revolution has made associations unneeded or superfluous. Others think associations must undergo a massive shift with a new business model. And some believe associations are just as vital today as years ago.
