Everyone talks about innovation, but making innovation part of an organizational culture remains a challenge for association leaders. This report captures findings from the ASAE Foundation’s Innovation in Associations study, which explored how different organizations across the association industry are approaching innovation. The report provides data on association successes and weaknesses in this area, and it examines:

  • areas of focus for innovation within associations
  • the components of innovation culture
  • leadership elements that nurture innovation.

This report offers strategies and practices based on the research findings, as well as insights from association-tested practices, to help you advance innovation and innovative thinking in your organization. With this report, you get the information you need to effect real change for your organization and your members.
