There would be no progress, innovation or knowledge transfer without associations. The best way to provide secondary education and innovation? Through in-person meetings and events.
But we have to go a step further and be intentional about where and why we meet. Ask yourself, where can we go to boost the economy? How can we help develop the city?
Seek out unlikely partnerships by connecting with cities and centers that support your association’s mission. If you feel stuck, use that mission to guide your event planning.
Events and in-person meetings allow your organization to positively impact the world around you.
