The tech your association needs
XYZ University
The world is changing, your membership is changing and your association needs to make some changes too. Technology is not something limited to a single department anymore, it’s playing an important role in every member’s life.

You’ve probably heard this before, but social media and mobile marketing are must-have association tools. These are low-hanging fruit that many associations still need to catch up on.

Vital legal considerations for nonprofits developing a mobile app
Venable
Mobile applications or "apps" are everywhere. Mobile devices are outselling personal computers, and an increasing percentage of internet access is made through mobile devices.

Harvard Business Review Blog Network
