ASAE Annual Meeting Hits a Home Run

ASAE Annual Meeting Hits a Home Run | #asae11 | Scoop.it

Attending ASAE Annual is a big deal for me. ASAE is my professional home and I have made many wonderful friends through ASAE, many friends whom I meet up with at Annual. Sure, sure...now that I work as a consultant for DelCor, there is some awareness of meeting potential clients at Annual, but let's be clear. I attended Annual before I "went to the dark side" and the meeting is always going to be more like a summer camp for association folks like me.

ASAE – Connecting With Associations and Their Stories | #asae11 | Scoop.it

Last week we exhibited at the ASAE 2011 Annual Show in St. Louis, MO and had the opportunity to meet many great associations and partners, and listen to inspiring and motivating speakers like Tina Brown and Peter Sheehan.

Fizzle Out or Follow Through?

Fizzle Out or Follow Through? | #asae11 | Scoop.it

At the end of a professional development event, you have a choice: Let the program spirit fizzle out, or follow through on all (or at least some) of the commitments you made, stretching the value of the program. I choose the latter!

What Is Generative? | #asae11 | Scoop.it

Last week Maddie and I had our first public conversation about the Humanize book at the ASAE Annual Meeting in St. Louis. We did an unofficial session in their “flash learning lounge” with about 15 people during the last time slot at the conference. It was really fun, I must say, to be talking about it.

“Takeaway for Barnes” – My ASAE11 Post-script | #asae11 | Scoop.it

In my mildly post-tour depressive state I find myself compelled to share my thoughts on ASAE11 if for no other reason than I think I need to in order to process everything and clear my head for real life and back to work. Like many, I travel a fair way to be with ASAE annual meeting every year and if I don’t get some of this out of my head now I will be in a foetal position mess on the flight home.

Innovation and Competitive Advantage

“Innovation” and “Competitive Advantage” – how often are these terms thrown around in any and every business setting? We expect it in San Jose. We expect it in Manhattan, but in St. Louis…really? At ASAE’s recent annual meeting, that’s exactly what we heard. Multiple educational and breakout sessions spoke to these topics, but the one that truly nailed it was the closing session by Peter Sheahan.

Are Some More Equal Than Others?

Yep, it's another post about Joe Gerstandt's awesome How to Fly Your Freak Flag session as #ASAE11. One of the exercises consisted of Joe reading a variety of statements and asking us to stand up, purely voluntarily and only if we wanted to share that information about ourselves, when any statement that was true about us was read. Some of them were fairly obvious, about gender and race/ethnicity. Some were less obvious, like being raised in a rural community or by a single parent.

Are You Ready to Fly?

Are You Ready to Fly? | #asae11 | Scoop.it

Without a doubt, the best session I attended at #ASAE11 was Joe Gerstandt's How to Fly Your Freak Flag. [...] His basic point is that the pressure on humans to conform to whatever group we're in is enormous, but conformity makes us “radically incomplete.”

Meetings reality check

Most of us who attended the ASAE Annual Meeting were awed. Almost everything was spectacular. There will always be criticisms of one kind or another, but overall, it was a great meeting (see, we're still talking about it!). Unfortunately, many attendees now want to emulate the ASAE event in their associations. That won't always work.
