ASAE 13 Follow Up - Gaming in Association Management

My interview with Personify about my session at ASAE 13 in Atlanta, GA -

Wow, my schedule has been nuts ever since Atlanta and I am just now getting around to sending follow ups and resources out to everyone who was able to attend the session as well as my readers here at the Association Subculture.  In the coming weeks I have a lot to say about membership engagement and professional development but for right now, I just wanted to shoot out some resources for those of you who are interested in learning about how gaming and gaming techniques can be used in our associations to make us more fun, more engaging and "stickier."

I hope you enjoy some of these videos, websites and books!

Gaming in general - Jane McGonigal, Gaming Can Make a Better World - Seth Priebatsch - Building the Game Layer on Top of the World - Tom Chatfield - 7 ways video games engage the brain - Fun is the Future - Gabe Zichermann

Gaming for Health - Jane McGonigal - The Game That Can Give you 10 Extra Years of Life - Game Helps Children Escape Realities of Burn Unit

Gaming for Good - Brenda Brathwaite - Games for a Change - World Without Oil

Gaming Sites

Gaming Books

Plus, there are lots of new apps too for health and fitness. The Nike Fuelband and Jawbone Up is based on game mechanics and there are lots of fitness apps out there to choose from.  So gaming and gaming mechanics are expanding to every area of life.  Associations can't fail to take advantage of this trend.  If they do, they will remain static and boring and nobody wants that...

Enjoy your week and don't forget to have a little fun along the way!
