As a senior consultant in technology management at DelCor, he helps associations achieve progress through technology strategic planning, digital strategy, system assessments and selection, e-learning strategies, and more.
“My work for and with various associations over the years, as well as my volunteer experiences, were particularly helpful in bringing the subject matter to life, which helped me apply the CAE body of knowledge effectively, and will continue to serve me—and my clients and cohorts—well in the future,” said Conley.
Mr. Conley is a member of ASAE and a course facilitator for ASAE University. He is a frequent author, speaker, and presenter in the association community.
