Imagine starting a new job with a gamut of responsibilities and there is no orientation or manual. Volunteers accept a role but may not understand their duties as trustees and a fiduciaries on behalf of the membership. 

The best relationship with new directors starts with the statement: “Welcome to the board, here is the leadership manual which includes everything you’ll need to govern.” 

Yet some organizations don’t have a manual for the leadership and many don’t provide board orientation.

Have you registered for #NESAETECH? This conference is your opportunity to join your association management colleagues, industry partners, and thought leaders for a day of technology-focused education, networking, and product demos. Online registration is OPEN here.

It’s time to re-imagine everything! Do you know what’s new in Association Technology? If not, then Reggie Henry’s presentation during the afternoon general session is where you will want to be. This session will highlight the effects of recent shifts in 21st-century technology. Now is your association''s time to have full access to world-class technology. Not having it, and not providing the kinds of products and services that it enables, is now a lack of strategy, not a lack of resources. Take the necessary steps to further develop a technology plan that works for your organization.
