As a Baby Boomer who spent her entire career in the world of membership-based nonprofit association management, you can just imagine the changes that I have experienced during my almost 40-year career. During my self-introduction when delivering any presentation, attendees chuckle when I share that I’m old and “B.C.” – (Before Computer!).
We can all likely relate to that feeling of being overwhelmed and out of control when it comes to dealing with the many issues that come our way each day in the association world. Our email inboxes are perpetually being bombarded with items that require action, issues that require decision making and requests that require consideration. This is particularly true for our board presidents and executive directors.
