Blogger’s Digest: September 2013


30 days sure get crossed off the calendar quickly, don’t they? Alas, September is behind us, and so are a few intriguing posts from The DelCor Connection blog. Take a look at what you might have missed – and don’t be afraid to add your comments to this or the individual blog posts!

For starters, it was Hunger Action Month at the Capital Area Food Bank and at local food banks around the country. We’re big supporters of CAFB – they benefit directly from our .org Community Food Drive each spring. Loretta was invited to contribute to their #hungeraction Blog Carnival and happily obliged with a checklist for starting a community food drive.

Back on our own blog, we offered a variety of perspectives on technology. First up, long-time NSS Consultant Kevin Scudder fine-tuned his golf swing with benefits provided by technology – and offered a lesson in how technology can help your association connect with progress (just like those guys in plaid out on the green). Senior Consultant Gretchen Steenstra, PMP, picked up a different kind of game – Legos – and wondered why fitting business systems together isn’t as simple as, say, building the Millennium Falcon out of little plastic blocks. And to keep the workout upbeat, Senior Consultant Sarah Manwell, revisited some 1980s aerobic champions to develop a modern-day IT fitness plan.

All of these tactics help you keep your technology strategy fit, modern, and, most importantly, in line with your end game. Whatever your mission, whatever your business goals, your technology will be ready to deliver. Ready to get started? Read on!

And, finally, because your mobile devices are likely getting a workout these days, too (we know many of our association friends are road warriors), #deardel contributor David Johnson offers a tip for extending your battery life while you’re actually in the office (no iOS upgrade required to take advantage of this tip!):

Plus, stay tuned for what’s coming up in October!
