3 Takeaways from Engaging Associations Forum 2019

 

  • There is power within you to make change. Chris Cummings said “There is a power within you to make change and it starts with small acts.”  We believe technology is a powerful tool to enable positive change.  But technology alone is not enough we must better understand human behaviour to understand how the technology will change it. Combining those two elements is the most impactful way to create change.
  • Choose the high Impact results driven activities. Erin said: “Don’t just add solutions or services increasing complexity.  Choose the high impact results driven activities your associations can offer members. Then be critical about activities that don’t provide value and remove them.” The same is true when it comes to AV, focus your audio visual budget on technologies that produce results.
  • Get unscripted. Jennifer Spear asked us to “Get unscripted, it might be a little scary, but all the uncertainty and ambiguity opens up many new opportunities that might not have been evident otherwise.” FMAV believes events are a never-ending prototype. An opportunity to experiment with innovative design strategies and technologies. Overtime that experimentation evolves your stakeholders experience.
