2013 Roundup eBook
I started Association Mavens in early 2012 when I was an association newbie and eager to learn as much as I could about the industry. A full two years of association immersion has brought me interviews with 24 key players, which has helped me gain numerous speaking engagements at industry conferences, volunteer opportunities with the American Society of Association Executives, and new exposure to even more thought leaders. The Association Mavens class of 2013 boasts 11 individuals who each brought his or her unique perspective of the association industry—and where it’s headed.
From Stacy Tetschner’s interview on the new direction of National Speakers Association to Tom Morrison’s progression with member engagement at the Metal Treating Institute to Jeff Cobb of Tagoras discussing the limitless opportunities with online learning, Association Mavens has rapidly progressed into something remarkable.
Join me in the 2013 Association Mavens Roundup eBook, where we’ll uncover the many trials, challenges, opportunities, and successes faced by some of the industry’s foremost thinkers and teachers over this past year. You’ll get an in-depth look at how association leaders are evolving old methods and procedures by adopting new-age technologies and innovations.
I hope you enjoy this eBook and continue to stay tuned in the coming year. You never know who you’ll see in the Mavens chair!
2012 Roundup eBook
When I launched the Association Mavens website last July, I did so as a relative newcomer to the association industry. My goal was to connect with the association world’s foremost thinkers and teachers and then share what I found out with the greater community. Six months and 13 Mavens later, the Association Mavens site has covered a wide range of topics and trends, from author Mary Byers’ interview on how the industry is radically changing to a discussion with Wes Trochlil on AMS implementation to consultant Jeff Hurt’s pointers on captivating a conference audience.
Each Maven has brought a unique perspective of the association world, and together these interviews provide a snapshot of the industry as it was in 2012—its challenges, its evolution, and where it is headed in the future.
I hope you enjoy this Mavens Roundup 2012 and I look forward to providing you many more fascinating interviews in the coming year.
