If you’re like most association professionals, you may not think you have the staff, systems or stamina to create and execute a fully integrated communication strategy. But creating a strategy doesn’t have to be daunting if you just Take AIM (Assess, Integrate and Measure).
By William D. Pawlucy
Year over year, the priorities of a nonprofit organization change. As major planning takes place, why is it that committees and their composition often remain relatively unchanged? It would be the same as leaving the budget unchanged year over year regardless of the changes in the organization. Why are we not putting that same priority on committees as we do on our budgets, given volunteers are the single most important resource?
One association’s early success with a “Super Member” category shows how a premium, all-access offer can lock in high-volume members.

The event technology landscape is complex. There are almost too many platforms and apps to consider, and integration, interoperability and expense are consistent challenges. Event planners need a way to ease the pain of automation and bring down the costs. The answer is in the cloud.
It is often said that an association’s board of directors is the brain of that organization. Its committees serve as the central nervous system influencing all parts of the body. The conference planning committee is similar to our spinal cord, serving as the internal communication highway between the parts of the body and the brain. When the brain, central nervous system and spinal cord operate well, they accurately sense the environment, process information and provide valuable insight to the brain so that the organization succeeds. However, if our spinal cord—the conference planning committee—is damaged, the entire association suffers.
We love a good blog – especially one that consistently provides relevant and interesting convent. Fortunately for us, there are several of those in the association space. In fact, here are seven.
