ATLANTA, Sept. 16, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- ASAE and The Center is driving innovation in the association world with their InnovationTalks initiative. Over the course of 5 days, associations around the world will be participating in discussions and conversations with the focus on advancing innovation in their organizations. ASAE has charged their members, volunteers and industry partners to:
- explore what innovation might look like for their organizations and efforts
- make an innovation commitment they can complete in the next 30 days, and then
- share the takeaways and commitments from their innovation conversations with the entire association community
Although the initiative begins on Sept 19, 2011 and runs through the 23rd, ASAE has selected September 20 to host InnovationTalks Day on site in Washington, DC. Six facilitators will drive in person discussions on topics including Innovation specifically related to Technology, Membership and Online Learning, and more on running an organization with an innovative philosophy.
To increase participation, this series of discussions is offered free of charge, and ASAE has selected Peach New Media to video record and host the on-demand content from the Innovation Day for others to view around the world.
Peach New Media CEO, Dave Will, was selected to facilitate a session on Social Learning and comments, "We are so pleased to be a part of the ASAE InnovationTalks Day. The whole initiative shows ASAE's creativity and commitment to Associations. Kudos to ASAE for initiating the idea and turning the content over to the community."
ASAE expects hundreds of conversations to ensue over the 5-day window of discussions. Anyone is welcome to participate and your discussion can be submitted in the ASAE InnovationTalks Resource Center. Alternatively, there is a list of several discussions you may want to participate in. Here are a few to consider:
