Digital Now 2009 – The Future of Association Leadership in the Digital Age

April 18, 2009 at 5:18 am 2 comments

I’m pleased to be writing this post from the Fusion e.Comm.unity Center at the 2009 installment of Digital Now .  To those of you who aren’t aware, Digital Now in my mind is the leading edge conference for association leaders navigating the rapidly evolving opportunities presented by the social web.

Digital Now is presented by Fusion Productions and the Disney Institute.  This is my third year at Digital Now and in addition to attending, I had the good fortune to co-present a session on Increasing Membership through Social Media using case studies of the progress we’ve made in my present association.    

I will be sorting through thvoluminous notes I’ve taken over the past couple of days and will be sharing many thoughts in the days to come.

Since launching Association 2020 I’ve devoted much of my energy and focus toward leadership, change management, innovation and people issues.  This has been rather purposeful as I believe strongly that before any association or organization can really begin to seize the transformative opportunities associated with the social web and new technology, they must first build a strong organizational foundation that is primed for change.

With that said, moving forward I’ll be talking much more about the most exciting leadership challenge we face as association executives today and that is transformational leadership and practices here in the age of social technology. SM
