For associations, technology plays a uniquely prominent role. Yet when surveyed, many association executives indicate a lack of planning and confidence in the area of strategic technology planning. With member recruitment issues continuing and a massive generational shift in membership, having a strategic technology plan is more important than ever.
Newly released results for the 2013 Technology Leadership Survey have given us a first-of-its-kind glimpse into association executives' use of technology. Join fellow association CEOs, CMOs and CTOs as leading experts discuss findings from the study. Over 400 association leaders weighed in to help you discover the decisions and practices that will yield the best results. Open only to senior association and nonprofit professionals, this is the ideal setting to openly discuss issues surrounding technology and concerns facing the association and nonprofit community.
The speakers and expert panel will offer insight on the report’s findings including answers to the following questions:
- What are the emerging trends in technology for associations?
- How is association leadership dealing with new issues surrounding technology?
- How are social media and mobile apps being used ineffectively?
- Why is engaging younger members the most important task for associations in 2013?
- How are generational divides impacting the use of technology?
