      Assessing Your Organization’s Digital Maturity

      Most organizations understand the need for a digital transformation that involves adopting new processes and strategies to succeed. It’s also clear that technology must be embedded into the core of an association, but this understanding is only the starting point. Association staff must also be thinking about what it means to reach digital maturity. In this seminar, learn more about digital maturity, explore common IT maturity models that can benefit associations, and identify methods for using them to measure an organization’s digital progress.

      2:00 – 3:00 p.m.

      Collaborative Tech Tools for Increased Organizational Efficacy

      Technological advancements are transforming nearly every aspect of the association community, from virtual conferences to online member communities, newsletters, and everything in between. New IT initiatives are improving operational processes and products across the spectrum. Important innovations in collaborative communication tools allow staff to work seamlessly and efficiently. In this seminar, explore the latest tools and platforms that are crucial for association staff collaboration, and learn how to get staff buy-in for those tools.

      Thursday, June 25, 2020
      2:00 – 3:00 p.m.

      Ensuring Data Security Amid Technological Innovation

      Association leaders need to encourage creative thinking and technological innovation to keep their organization competitive and moving forward in the digital age. But innovation must be balanced with security needs. Data security is the responsibility of every staff member—not just the IT team—so it’s crucial to know how to train your (non-IT) staff about best practices for data security. In this session, you’ll also learn about the most important compliance rules of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and explore strategies for negotiating data security with new technology vendors.

      Friday, June 26, 2020
      2:00 – 3:00 p.m.

      Cultivating Your Staff’s Digital Mindset

      The 21st-century workplace requires a digital mindset that goes beyond specific technical skills and focuses on big-picture strategy and goals. For organizations to succeed today, staff members need to be able to approach initiatives and projects through a digital strategy lens. In practice, this means that they must be able to ask strategic questions, evolve their thinking based on real-time information, and evaluate tech projects against budgets to make sound financial decisions. Attend this seminar to learn strategies for enabling your organization’s staff to adopt a more digitally savvy mindset and skill set.
