During a session at ASAE’s Great Ideas Conference, I had the pleasure of hearing Tracy Todd, PhD, CEO of the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT), talk about how his association is integrating Mixed Reality Simulation (MRS) into their training efforts to gain greater effectiveness.
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!).
When the title of the meeting is Learnapalooza, you attend the program with anticipation of gaining insight to changes in expectations of how association members want to gather information and learn new material. The two-day program didn’t disappoint. Topics ranged from understanding the changing landscape of today’s learners to dynamic evolution of digitally marketing your educational programs.
I was fortunate to have been able to join 6,000+ association colleagues and professionals in Chicago for the ASAE 2018 Annual Meeting this past summer.
