It’s been a little bit since I posted, but I wanted to share an article that Maggie McGary and myself were quoted in for the Associations Now Interactive Extra. It’s all about building meeting buzz online; before, during and after the event. Check it out. Also, don’t forget the tips and ideas provided can extend […]


Back in March, I had the incredible pleasure of meeting Mr. Joe Gerstandt. He is an amazing person to converse with and an incredible speaker. I had the amazing opportunity to see him do the below Ignite presentation at ASAE Great Ideas. He’s probably one of the best speakers I’ve seen in awhile. Maybe it’s […]


The closing day of ASAE’s Membership, Marketing & Communications Conference (aka MMC) started off with Josh Bernoff. For those readers unfamiliar with Josh Bernoff, he’s the Sr VP – Idea Development with Forrester Research (full bio). Though I came in a little late (yeah traffic!), here are my notes from the session: 500 Billion impressions […]


So this is my second Ignite presentation I’ve been to in the past week (the other one being Ignite Baltimore 7). Since it’s kind of a firestorm of information, I’ve captured a key takeaway from each presentation. Enjoy! (btw, I will update with YouTube links when they are released) freak flag-flying (what, why, and how) […]


Today watching the #sweetspot something occurred to me… Can associations be all things to all members? There were ideas flowing everywhere during the broadcast (and on the blogs for the past week) about how ASAE Annual can improve. My question is, can we as a community do all of them? This is something that I […]


So my wonderful presentation partners Elizabeth Engel & Layla Masri just finished up our presentation “Plays Well With Others: Engage Your Members by Integrating Multiple Communication Channels”. In case you missed it (because it’s not like there were FIVE other social media sessions going on at the same time or anything….), I’ve embedded the Prezi. […]


It has been a long 24 hours so far. Well I’m lying slightly, I’ve been in L.A. for about 28 hours, but close enough I say. I’m not a west coast girl by nature. I’ve lived on the east coast most of my life though I did spend my college years (plus a little extra) […]


Today’s post was inspired by the exercise in censorship that recently appeared on the ASAE Acronym blog. There was a post entitled “Consultant Wasteland”. It was a really insightful post about the relationship between staff & the consultant. If you haven’t seen it yet, myself and Maddie Grant have shared the post on Google Buzz […]


There are three drives: Rewards/Punishments,  Instinctual Drives (Carnal, Hunger, etc.), Motivation We respond to rewards & punishment. Rewards encourage the behavior, punishments discourage the behavior. We also do things because they are interesting. Higher rewards lead to worse performance. Contingent motivators work well for simple tasks, rule based tasks, etc. The contingent motivators actually narrow […]


ASAE tried to draft the under 30’s awhile back to participate in their Association of the Future (AOTF) “program” (I guess that’s the word to use). I didn’t participate because I think if I had anything more on my plate, my head my spontaneously combust. So today at #Ideas10 they had a session about AOTF. […]
