It's Been Way Too Long

I feel awful. I haven't written on here in ages. I left the association world a year ago this week. It has been a crazy year, but it was great. Lots of new beginnings. I will do my best to do a little more on here in 2013. Happy New Year!

Google TV Ads Revisited

In case you didn't catch it last year, I did some Google TV ads testing.

Looks like they are doing a little more now.

Voting for Sessions

I got an email from ASAE asking me to vote for sessions for the 2012 Marketing, Membership and Communications Conference. What a great idea. Crowdsourcing at its best. Having been involved in session selection for ASAE before, I am sure that the ones presented to the masses were a vetted list, eliminating the obvious ones that didn't fit/work. But why not ask the very folks who would be going to such a conference to pick their learning opportunities? Now the only problem is scheduling, so that people don't miss sessions they really want to see. I like choice in a time slot, just not TOO much choice.

Update on mobile website for workshop

Our mobile site is mobile.scranet.org. We had it for our meeting that took place last week. It didn't get much usage, but I attribute that to being new and us not publicizing it enough. I think we will see increased growth in usage as we roll it out at our other meetings and increase marketing of it. Having it run wordpress was really nice and flexible. Hopefully we can see more usage sooner rather than later. Any thoughts?

Rain Rain Go Away - What do you do when disaster strikes your members?

This is getting a little out of control. I measured 6 inches of rain last night that had accumulated in a 24 hour period. My grass is happy, but this is nuts. Took me 90 minutes to get home last night from work. I really wish I could divert all this to Texas.

Which leads me to today's Friday question - what do you do when disaster strikes your members? Do you have a plan in place for contacting them, reaching out with aid, etc.?
