My favorite technologies – # 1 of 5 – TextExpander and Keyboard Maestro

I recently had the opportunity to speak at the AMC Institute’s Summer Conference in Dallas, just prior to the ASAE Annual Conference. My general session topic was on using technology in AMCs. We discussed a broad range of technology issues, but one area that I did not get to cover was the list of my Top 5 Favorite technologies. So I’m going to cover each of those in these next five blog posts.

I’m Not Quite Done With ASAE 2012

It’s been a week since ASAE’s Annual Meeting ended and I’m not ready to close the book on this year’s meeting. If you attended the Annual Meeting in Dallas August 11-14 and saw the twitter feed – you know there was a lot of great information beind shared. There were so many great sessions that I wanted to attend but couldn’t. I couldn’t let all that amazing information dissapear into the twitter black hole of old tweets – so I spent a few days organizing, reformatting, and saving the tweets for future use.

A Conference for Professionals Who Know Conferences

A Conference for Professionals Who Know Conferences | #asae12 | Scoop.it

We all probably have that one conference that you know you should attend but always have an excuse not to make it. “Too close to my board meeting.” “We don’t have the budget for it.” “I’ve been to Springfield (name any other city) before; don’t want to go again.”

For me – it was the ASAE (American Society of Association Executives) annual conference. ...

I chose well in my sessions. I was privileged to facilitate a challenging discussion on diversity and inclusion with a panel of passionate, outspoken association CEOs. I had the chance to sit down in a flash session facilitated by Jeff De Cagna and share thoughts with a bunch of association professionals who share the perspective that our lack of innovation is killing us, and it's time we did something about it. ...

Creating Special Moments Through Social Listening

Creating Special Moments Through Social Listening | #asae12 | Scoop.it

Last week I attended ASAE’s Annual Meeting in Dallas, TX. This meeting brought about 6000 associations executives to this conference which had events in multiple venues around Dallas.

While I was participating in the Twitter stream, I stumbled into a discussion with ASAE’s community manager, Mandy Stahl (@MandyStahl), about how it’s always cold in convention centers. We joked about the temperature being 100 degrees outside, yet we needed to wear sweaters.

Short, Sweet & Easy to Repeat: cornerstone to association communications | #asae12 | Scoop.it

The opening general session at the ASAE annual meeting in Dallas featured a “duel” between political consultants Karl Rove and James Carville. For many attendees, the session fell short because it really didn’t relate to our day-to-day association management functions. ... This was disappointing to me because Carville offered some very insightful thoughts in his Associations Now interview leading up to the convention.

#ASAE12 Wrap | #asae12 | Scoop.it

My 5th Annual Meeting as a member of ASAE (American Society of Association Executives) was as memorable for many reasons however it is in keeping with many others that my wrap is kept to just five key takeaways. Arriving in Dallas TX for the first time and approaching the Omni Hotel Downtown Dallas gave me a sense of what we were about to experience. The Dallas CVB was really owning the convention and at every vantage point, like the lights on my hotel, making us feel welcome.
