The 2020 Census has been in the news for many reasons. Many are talking about. And some are taking that talk to action. The Alabama, Illinois and Texas Chapters of American Academy of Pediatrics are among those taking action. They have been working hard to promote participation in the 2020 census. And that’s good for children.
For many the new year brings new resolutions most of which are about change. While we focus on the need to change, we sometimes skip over setting ourselves up for change. This can be doubly so when we look at change in our associations and in our chapters.
We opened Mariner at the start of 2002. It was a bold new year’s resolution. We set out to build a business that catered to association chapters and their volunteers.
While more is still written about membership, events and technology, chapters did merit coverage in 2019 from a couple of the association’s leading sources. In case you missed some, here a few articles worth a look (or maybe a second look). As you peruse, just maybe there is a tip or strategy for 2020.
Sit back and enjoy this new series of posts from Billhighway decoding crises we see (and feel) in chapters. The series covers all kinds of troublesome scenarios from chapter financial mismanagement, fraud and cybersecurity attacks to AWOL or unprepared chapter officers and everything in between.
