A recent discussion thread on the ASAE Collaborate Executive Management Section explored the topic “Wanted: Entrepreneurial Thinking.” We’d like to invite executives and thought leaders in trade associations and individual membership societies interested in exploring entrepreneurship/change management to come together and form the Associations Catalyzing Entrepreneurship (ACE) group. We can meet and swap ideas and experiences to help tackle the challenges we face. This is an in-person meeting but a conference line is provided so participants from outside the DC area can dial in.
At our first meeting on Jan 17, we’ll lay out the barriers to entrepreneurial thinking in associations. At future meetings, we can discuss how to break these barriers and create a culture that supports entrepreneurship.
These association leaders will briefly share their experiences to catalyze the group discussion:
