Associations stand at a crossroads. We have more types and greater
amounts of data readily available to us than ever before, and the cost
of the tools needed to process all that data has declined dramatically.
In fact, the combination of data and tools available in 2014 should
allow us to move beyond the standard operational dashboards we’ve been
using for years and get to the “good stuff,” where we can start asking
the kinds of meaningful, mission-driven questions that allow us to use
data to inform our decisionmaking processes. But how?

We’re knee-deep in interviews with volunteers from a cross-section of associations as part of a number of volunteer strategy projects. There’s still lots of passion. There is also less time, less patience with volunteering that doesn’t move needles, and a sense of a lack of reward for effort. On one project, we had a task […]

When the ASAE Foundation debuted its initiative ForesightWorks, an evidence-based research initiative which identifies critical trends and issues on the horizon for associations, volunteering wasn’t specifically listed as one of those the drivers. Volunteering was officially named a driver last summer.
