Ways to improve your association's email communication
MemberClicks
Email communication is not only the norm, it’s outright expected. But when your members open their email inboxes they’re buried under work notes of varying importance, blog subscriptions, social media notifications, message board updates, dozens of newsletters, ads, spam, and then maybe some personal correspondence, too. How is your association communication supposed to get through all that mess?

Time to end term limits?
Associations Now
According to Beth Gazley’s 2013 ASAE Foundation book, “What Makes High-Performing Boards?,” 89 percent of associations have a policy on term lengths. There’s a little flexibility within that: 27 percent of organizations have a stated policy of no term limits or require a break between terms. But by and large, boards are structured to bring in fresh blood and, hopefully, fresh ideas. There’s a downside to that structure, though: The potential disappearance of institutional memory, inconsistent engagement, or just the loss of a very smart and dynamic board member.

Where will your next big idea and new revenue stream come from?
The Demand Networks
It strikes me that in the frenzied hunt for the next innovation or great idea that will bring in new sources of revenue and reverse decline, most organizations across sectors often turn to the outside, for the proverbial magic bullet. What they leave on the table is the rough diamonds in their own resources that are hidden or disguised before their eyes. And yet it is by discerning and unlocking unconventional, “unofficial,” sources of value, rather than more and newer programs within the same categories, that organizations today leap to new levels of growth and relevance.

How to stand out in your next meeting
By Deborah Wipf
Communication isn't just what we say. It’s how we say something — our tone of voice and our nonverbal cues, including facial expressions and body language. Sometimes our nonverbal cues can betray our intended message. One example that sticks out to me involves our beloved cellphones. Let's face it; we're addicted to those things. Don't believe me? If you've ever experienced that moment of panic when you couldn't locate your phone, you're addicted. Cellphones are great, and they're intended to facilitate better and faster communication, but sometimes we misuse the tool.

Why it's so hard to turn fickle millennials into leaders
Inc.
Among the starkest data points in Deloitte's 2014 Global Human Capital Trends report is this one: About two-thirds of companies around the world consider themselves weak in developing millennial leadership. Meanwhile, only 5 percent of companies rated themselves as "excellent" in that field. The data comes on the heels of other reports showing trouble in leadership development programs. Among those findings: Companies are hurting themselves by failing to differentiate between high-performance and high-potential employees, and though they recognize the importance of talent development they're not putting their money where their mouth is by investing in development programs.
