Upcoming Presentations

I’ll be speaking at 2 sessions at ASAE’s Annual Meeting in Minneapolis next month.
The first is a preconference session called Building Bridges: IT as a Strategic Partner. The portion of the session I am involved in will focus on how to get IT involved in the overall strategic planning and execution of the organization. The second part of the program will take a detailed look at the current state of the association management system industry, which is the biggest technology investment for most associations (just slightly ahead of the web these days).

The second is a concurrent session called Web Technologies for the Future. The session is built around William Gibson’s quote: “The future is here. It’s just not evenly distributed yet.” Non-profit organizations are typically the last on the technology distribution list, so there is lots of stuff we can talk about that have not penetrated our industry yet.
