Why every meeting could use some editing
Associations Now
You may hear the word “editing” and think it only applies to writing and communications. But the truth is that every good conference could use a little streamlining and cleanup. That’s because in a world of information overload, attendees want the clutter removed and different aspects of meetings streamlined in order to have an experience that they feel is not only custom-tailored to them but also easily digestible.

Innovation or evolution in your organization?
By William D. Pawlucy
How important is innovation versus evolution? Do nonprofit organizations today innovate or evolve? Successful organizations recognize that both innovation and evolution play a similar role and define it as "deliberate evolution." As we look at our own organizations, can we deliberately evolve them to take something already done or in existence and make it better rather than falling into the trap of always creating something new in the name of innovation?

Aside from contact at association meetings and conferences, how do they interact with each other? Increasingly, it’s via a private online social community, especially if your organization has lots of millennials as members. Surprisingly, though, too few associations have made the leap to implementing their own private online social communities.

Association Adviser
Sure, your inbox is stuffed to the gills. But if you think you’ve been getting more text, tweets, updates and posts than ever before, you’re not alone.

In fact, 28 percent of respondents (vs. 12 percent in 2013) think that more than half of their members will not be email regulars within the next half decade.

What is the social character of your organization and its customers?
The Demand Perspective
Most associations, and in fact most established organizations, are set up as efficient bureaucracies not as customer-centered, interactive organizations. In his book, The Leaders We Need, respected leadership expert Michael Maccoby argues that to bridge such gaps — understand today’s and tomorrow’s customers and build an engaging organization around them — you must understand and align the “social character” of your leadership and organization with that of your stakeholders.
