Will associations become filters for digital overload?
The Huffington Post    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Steve Rosenbaum, a New York City entrepreneur and author, writes, "Chances are you're a member of what may be the most powerful curation club you could ever imagine and you don't even know it. They are the backbone of virtually every profession. Doctors. Accountants. Engineers. Even turn-around specialists have them. 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 curation." More

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. Perhaps the best aspect of this discussion is that associations are questioning their existence and purpose. Policy writing, when done strategically, helps an association clarify who and what it is (or wants to be) for its members and other stakeholders. More

What do benefit corporations have to do with associations?
Association Subculture Blog    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
What do benefit corporations have to do with associations? Everything. Those companies who are becoming benefit corporations are required to select and demonstrate compliance with a particular independent third-party standard that measures their commitment to good business practices, as well as social and environmental performance. The question for associations is — who should be setting those standards for those companies in your industry or profession who want to be benefit corporations? The answer is — you. More

Conference season: Learning for more than members
Social Fish    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Spring conference season is upon us. Across the association industry, staffers are packing supplies, charging mobile phones and polishing their "Trade-Show-Walking-Shoes." Soon there will be days filled with registration badges, session evaluations, food and beverage orders, and – most important for anyone working in a member driven organization – spending time chatting face to face with members and industry experts. And just as association staff packs up, so will the association's vendors and partners. More

Association membership: A millennial's perspective
bXb Online    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Lauren Mulherrin, project coordinator for bXb Online, writes, "Jeff Hurt's post, 'Today's Youth Are On A Quest For Authenticity And Community' focused on the amazing research conducted by McCann Group about the millennial generation. Having written a previous blog post about the millennial generation, my own generation, I was intrigued to see what Jeff had to say. My typical reaction to millennial generation articles written by somebody outside of the generation is, 'How did you draw these conclusions?' In many cases, it appeared that summations were drawn from other articles written by those not in the Millennial generation. Jeff did it right." More
