Springtime Expo

Have you heard of ASAE’s Springtime Expo?  Yes, it’s an event for meeting planners.  However, the expo is also a great place to visit technology vendors that specialize in that area of association managment: think software for distance learning, expo management, registration management, abstract management, and audio visual needs.  Last year, I attended for the first time and was amazed at the number of tech vendors to visit.  It’s happening on April 28th at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center and the tradeshow only registration option is a bargain.  If you’re looking for technology solutions around meetings and events, check out the expo hall search to see if it might be worth a visit for you.


ASAE Tech Council kicks off #ASAETech chat

The ASAE Technology Council kicks off #ASAETech chat today at 3 pm ET on Twitter.  Maddie Grant, the Chief Social Media Strategist at SocialFish and co-author of Open Community will moderate today’s topic, How to get more engagement in your online communities/social media sites.

These monthly chats will focus on hot topics for technology leaders in the associations and non-profits and will be moderated by volunteers in our industry.  Flag your calendar now for the 2nd Friday each month at 3pm ET.  If you’ve never tuned in for a live Twitter chat before, you can follow along simply by using Twitter search .  However, participating is easier using a site such as TweetChat.

In the interest of full disclosure, I’m a current member of the ASAE Technology Council and a big supporter of their efforts.  Let me know if you have a suggestion for a future topic or would like to volunteer to moderate.
