Charting Success in 2024

Leading associations today has a unique set of challenges and opportunities. With the upcoming election year, uncertain economy, and the way employees work continuing to shift, today’s leaders need to navigate a rapidly changing world. Explore some common challenges so you can understand how to mitigate them, to lead your association into the future.

Kick 2024 off right by joining your association peers in an interactive discussion exploring the following topics and more:

  • Ensuring your organizational processes are as efficient as possible.

  • Attracting and retaining top talent by designing your organizational culture into a place employees want to work.

  • Developing and inspiring your teams to ensure talent is continuously nurtured and developed to engage and motivate others to work smarter and take pride in their jobs.

  • Leading and managing change by mitigating consequences, overcoming resistance, and reassuring staff by displaying empathy and understanding.
