Message from the Chair
It is the holiday season. Yes, we have made it to the end of another challenging year. As festive decorations and lights begin to pepper our neighborhoods, it is a reminder that despite all we have been through, this last month of the year is one of joy, light, celebration, and thanks. So many different holidays are celebrated now. This year, we will tentatively welcome back our friends and extended families for dinners and parties. When we remember where we were last year, the holiday lights shine a little brighter.

Q: I’m pulling my hair out trying to figure out how to counsel my board on 2022 programming. I thought we’d be out of the COVID woods by now, but we’re not. I don’t want to financially commit the organization if people aren’t going to show up. Some board members have suggested hybrid but the A/V costs are astronomical. What are other organizations doing?
A: Unfortunately, no one can predict in this COVID climate. Plus you cannot make a decision based on other associations’ outcomes because culture, member profiles, locations, etc. are different. Only you and your leadership know your organization and your community. Are your members asking for live events? How’s your attendance for virtual offerings? Talk to your board, consider surveying your leadership and membership but understand that what is happening today in the pandemic world may change pretty quickly in a month or two.

The association industry is reeling from the impact of the global pandemic, social injustice, the great resignation, and fundamental shifts in business models, industries, and value propositions. Today, and in the future, the association workforce deserves—and increasingly demands—inclusive leadership. The lure of superficial perks to attract and retain top talent are giving way to more meaningful social priorities like equity, belonging, wellness, and justice. Executive womxn in the C-suite are taking note and leading from the front.

Evidence shows most employees value leaders who speak up on social issues, and increasingly look for inclusive leaders who advance diversity, equity, access, and belonging internally and within the industries they serve when deciding where to work. The language we use, from interviews to board meetings to job descriptions, is deeply intertwined with our success. But, maybe fear of saying the wrong things has prevented you from fully engaging in this work? Let’s explore language and DEI together in a safe, interactive, community designed for executive womxn leading in associations and nonprofits.
