WORKSHOP - 7 Measures of Success, What Remarkable Associations Do That Others Don't
What distinguishes a truly remarkable association from the rest? The session will reveal the findings from ASAE’s best-selling book based upon extensive research conducted under the guidance of Jim Collins, author of Good to Great. Then, we’ll build upon the findings to discuss how your organization can develop its own path to becoming remarkable.

KEYNOTE - Fix it or Flee it? Proven approaches for dealing with failing, flagging and floundering association programs
Chances are that your association has at least one thing that you do that is facing dwindling involvement, underperforming finances, or sucking up staff resources. These programs often plod along year after year, maintained by the momentum of “but we have always done it that way.” Greg will share what he has learned from his involvement in the review of and intervention in nearly a dozen such situations over the past ten years. Come learn the key steps in evaluating such programs, and leave with an understanding of the steps you can take (and pitfalls to avoid) to revamp, revitalize, or even stop doing such programs.
