One of the most important responsibilities of leaders is to have a vision for the future of their organization and to be able to communicate that vision in such a way that all stakeholders (employees, customers, members, investors, etc) share the vision. All stakeholders need to be able to see the same vision.
This week, I will be moderating a panel discussion titled, “Association of the Future” at the National Association of Manufacturers Council of Manufacturing Associations (NAM CMA) meeting.
The panel is made up of three well respected, visionary leaders in the association management space.
1. John Graham, CAE. President and CEO of the American Society of Association Executives (ASAE). ASAE is the professional society for association managers. ASAE conducts research, delivers educational programs and creates networking opportunities for its members. As CEO, John is the leader of the profession. Check out ASAE here.
2. Jeff De Cagna, FRSA, FASAE. Chief Strategist and Founder of Principled Innovation. Principled Innovation offers consulting and speaking services to associations. Jeff is a former association executive and has been delivering visionary services to associations for many years. Check out Principled Innovation and Jeff here.
3. Seth Kahan. Author and Change Agent. Seth is the founder of Visionary Leadership, offering consulting, speaking and advice and counsel to associations. Seth has authored several books on ‘change’ and ‘innovation’. Check out Visionary Leadership and Seth here.
I can’t wait to hear what the future of associations looks like to these three leaders and visionaries. I am confident you will find it valuable. Before participating, give some thought to your association and what it will look like in five or ten years. See if your vision of the future is shared by any of the expert panelists.
