What Does the Young Professional Say?
(The Semi-Official Officially Official Video of ASAE NextGen '13 ;))
One of the things the ASAE NextGen '13 group was adamant about was making sure we developed and distributed takeaways so their work could be shared with the association community as a whole. And here is the centerpiece of that effort - a free downloadable e-book - "Assocations, Generation Y and Millennials: What You Need to Know About Your Next Generation Members." We hope you enjoy the contents. We tackled everything from current shifts in society, to challenging the association model, to blowing up myths about younger members and more. The most important outcome was a sense of optimism and energy around the future of associations.
What this means, is NextGen '14 has their work cut out for them :) (and so do I for that matter!). If you are a young professional (or you know one who should attend this all-expenses, flat out, generative think tank) you still have time to get your application in. There are a limited number of slots, so the application process is being used to narrow the field. (By the way, I am not involved in the selection process so please don't contact me in the hopes that I can influence the final list in your favor...however if you have other questions about what the experience was/is all about, I'm happy to give you my perspective - email@example.com )
Thanks to our event sponsors - Reno Tahoe USA - your airfare. accommodations are covered. (And if past is prologue we are going to work hard and party hard...well maybe just you as I drag myself around with a caffeine IV trying to keep up.... :D.)
In the coming weeks, I'll be blogging about individual pieces in here but for now I'll sign off and just say gering-ding-ding-ding-dingeringeding.....
