Blogger’s Digest: September 2015

Wait! Before you sign that association software contract… Featured on our blog this month was a 3-part series by Kathleen McQuilkin, PMP, on contract review. Exciting? Well, that depends upon your proclivities. Absolutely necessary? You betcha! If you’re contemplating a software upgrade or partnering with a new vendor, study and apply these posts to get your relationship off to a good start.

We often talk about creating partnerships between associations and their many suppliers. Not the quid pro quo kind, but the kind where there’s a keenly collaborative approach to problem solving, tech solutions/integration, and advancing the organization’s mission. In our latest installment on this topic, Tobin Conley, CAE, hit it out of the park. If you haven’t read this—and thoroughly embraced this mindsight—don’t wait another minute. And then pass it on! The collaboration mindset is infectious.

Finally, there was Association Palooza IV, a gathering of the minds around all things digital sponsored by DelCor and Results Direct, and featuring speakers and attendees from across the local association community. We cover 2 popular topics from those conversations on our blog.
