ASAE Technology Section Roundtable: Digital Transformation

When:  May 18, 2017 from 15:00 to 17:00 (ET)
As Netflix CEO Reed Hastings pointed out “companies rarely die from moving too fast, and they frequently die from moving too slowly.”

Associations are not immune to competition and disruption. According to recent research conducted by the ASAE Foundation, "association members expect technology to support and enhance all aspects of their member experience." The question is: how do you transform your organization to operate as a digital business?

Please join the ASAE Technology Section Council for an interactive roundtable discussion on digital transformation. Hear case studies from the Food and Drug Law Institute and the International Trademark Association. Then join in on the discussion as we discuss how association technology leaders can transform their associations to conduct business successfully in the digital world. Come ready to share the changes you are making within your organization and your own questions about digital transformation.
