About Stuart Meyer

SM_12-4-12_edited-1In August 2008, I started the Association 2020 blog as a passionate senior-level association executive based in the Chicago area with twelve years of experience working with state, national and international professional and political organizations.  Almost a year later in July 2009, based upon my ongoing volunteer service to the association industry and the many wonderfully encouraging people I encountered along the way, I decided to launch Social Frequency Media Communications and Association 2020 Consulting to expand my conviction and purpose in helping associations build strong futures.

I initially started and continue to publish this blog to provide “thought space” for myself and others who are working today to build a strong future for associations.  My areas of expertise include:  Membership, social media strategy, communications, component relations, marketing, public relations and executive management.

Please contribute your own comments/thoughts to any posting.  If you would like to connect with me directly, send me an email at stuart@socialfrequency.net .  You can also follow me on Twitter @Stuart_Meyer.
