Social Snapshot: March 2013
What people are saying in association social spaces: Including issues on members, career advice and making new hires.
“I have staff who work very fixed hours and others who have a lot of variability in time and place. That’s the great thing about being results-oriented: Either way or something in between is fine with me so long as we are achieving what we need to achieve.”
—C. David Gammel, CAE, executive director, Entomological Society of America, on AssociationsNow.com
“Members care about advocacy but some members are more ready to engage than others. Helping members prepare and appreciate the long-term advocacy ROI are important association services.”
—Amanda Batson, CEO, ADB Partners, on the Associations Now LinkedIn group
“Somebody once told me that it’s time to leave when you’ve gotten enough, when you’ve given enough, and when you’ve had enough.” —Edward Bernstein, president, Industrial Research Institute, on ASAE’s Collaborate network
@robertmbarnes: Don’t ever hire someone who is good technically, to whom, as part of their development, u are going to teach “people skills.” @managertools
