ewengel: @deirdrereid not under name Mary McGary – anyone else know if she’s on twitter?
sterlingraphael: Why can Monte Blanc charge 200k for a pen? Because they’re not int he flower business (they’re ine marriage extention business)
ewengel: Mary is basically chief community officer for ASHA – how progressive! wOOt!
smartbrief: Follow + adjust to the life cycle of a member — parent, adviser, empower-er, legacymaker
peggyhoffman: perception is reality when it comes to making an investment of time … what’s your member’s perception? make it magnetic
ljunker: Key to customer experience is bridging gap between our perspective as producers and their experience as consumers.
ewengel: @MissLynn13 yep – the whole of @peggyhoffman meme was to get people talking about microvolunteering (I think)
misslynn13: @ewengel I see a lot of that in the responses to @peggyhoffman ‘s Volunteerism meme.
ljunker: If your members aren’t proud to be your members, you’re not delivering true value to them.
sterlingraphael: @SmartBrief Think you’re in the same session. Do you have a minute to chat after this session about SmartBrief?
ljunker: Lior: Your members want to talk to staff who love what they do.
ewengel: ah, the revenue question….
jeffhurt: @ewengel ive bn loosely following 2day. Will read all posts 2nite. Have several unexpected deadlines 2day. Thnx 4 sharing.
peggyhoffman: opportunity – perception – communication – experience — building internal marketing ability make it magnetic
eicdocket: @SmartBrief that’s because too many of them don’t have other revenue streams
stevenjs: Some assoc are even using second life to replace mtgs

smartbrief: Jason suggests ppl read The Innovators Dilemma — a book Smartbrief hearts
jkhewett: @ewengel can you expand on Mico-volunteering??
ljunker: : Audience: I think it’s evolving, but my group can’t go from where we are now to this completely different model.
ahissrich: Start from a position of trust says Maddie in social media lab
ahissrich: Scott Steen hits it on the head-giving up of control is the key issue; it’s not easy, but it is important in this space
smartbrief: A lot of the ?s are about having donors/fundraisers as members + how that impacts the “perceived value” of the assn
toellis1: Make a love connection with your Gen X and Y members by asking them to engage and supporting their caraar.
jkhewett: @ljunker If they are not paying dues .. how is the assn funded?
toellis1: You have 60 days to make a positive impression on new young members to positively impact renewal.
ewengel: “distrust tax” – things happen slower and cost more money if there’s no trust
ahissrich: I love this-Andy Steggles says “think social”
rrich: Share information beyond what feels comfortable. Openness -) trust -) speed -) impact
ljunker: : Comment from person at my table: Core members are really a kind of fundraising more than a membership class.
ewengel: transparency –> trust –> speed, which is necessary to shape future
ljunker: : Jason: let people self-associate based on the love of what they do.
ewengel: playlist 3 – be global – be of world, not just in it
rrich: @skneebone yes, and we’re on the same team.
ljunker: Lori: Impt to communicate the value of membership, the way benefits more than compensate for dues
sterlingraphael: @ahissrich How can you organize and keep persistent content and conversations during the event?
ljunker: Lori: Impt to bring in members related to core mission of assn, to keep focus on mission.
ahissrich: Q/A open in social media lab. Any qs from folks in twitter for Scott, Maddie, Andy or Randi ?
ewengel: @Jeffhurt unsession by the pool Sun – good idea sharing, no computers due to risk of water damage
jkhewett: @lindydreyer Tiered in what way?
heleeene: Mickie’s certification course: I think I Might be understanding!
smartbrief: Assn of Fundraising Profs: 30k members + seeing steady growthm why? Tiered dues system, diff categories of members
ahissrich: Scott S. tells great story of using social media in a smart way to increase revenue
rrich: The answers;embrace common purpose. Need to make hard choices and innovate for benefit of all
lindydreyer: If you start from scratch, would you build your organization to be the same as it is now? In the same way?
ewengel: leaders make hard choices and pursue huge opportunities
smartbrief: IGDA has 15k paying members and 125k non — lots of power from both sectors
smartbrief: But dues-paying members + his non dues paying members are treated the same; all of their web content is open to everyone
lindydreyer: Much larger audience is different, changes what we do, adds value to the organization on many levels.
ewengel: answers about to be revealed…
ahissrich: Your goal isn’t to start a blog, it might be to recruit younger members, etc. Maddie from soc med lab
ahissrich: Maddie’s up in social media lab
ljunker: Jason: We’re so optimized for the dues paying model that we’re blind to environmental shifts around us.
ljunker: @toellis1 I’d love to know the info behind that 2018 date–I’ve heard it before but never found where it comes from.
ljunker: Jason: Assns are trapped in the entrenched player’s dilemma: So entrenched in how we do things it’s hard for us to change.
ahissrich: Andy’s talking about the value of integrating traditional AMSs with social networking, leveraging the unique assets of assns
jkhewett: @toellis1 WHY?? What is the rational beyond the statement that assns will be dead?
smartbrief: Also: some of the session descriptions don’t reflect the actual content of the session itself — leads to walkouts/frustration
ljunker: @jkhewett Definitely! I’ll post as we go.
smartbrief: Nearly 100% of the room thinks that “membership is evolving”
lindydreyer: In 8 years, dues as a percentage of revenue has stayed static.
smartbrief: At session: Is membership dead? Tougher to get ppl inside after lunch it seems – about 20 in room
jphillmar: @maddiegrant why nixed?
maddiegrant: NEED A TWITTER MONITOR in soc med lab. Anyone interested?
csalomonlee: @maggielmcg you should check out @dshiao and his blog as he writes about his experience on doing that exactly
jeffhurt: RT @stevenjs Your members are not your customers they are your product. [gr8 advice for nonprofit associations]
randisumner: steggles reminds us all to use google.com/alerts to monitor the assn brand
desabol: @lindydreyer great statement. I think “we = assns” should provide the medium. Let the members take care of the rest.
maddiegrant: RT @toellis1 : Some of these social media ideas are so simple. Why is my org having so much trouble getting started? – Yep yep
smartbrief: Influence: if you can figure out who is a leader, a starter, a mobilizer — evangelists — you can tap into their power
bobprah: Computing” seen as Synergistic #AmazonEC2 EC2 , open source, SaaS, Synergy,

smartbrief: He is advocating open and closed networks — depending on the purpose.
katadhin: Getting some great ideas from all the tweets
stevenjs: Get your biggest critics be part of the process
smartbrief: Other big concern — no clear goals! Hence why everyone is here to learn about strategy
pinnovation: @sterlingraphael excellent…can u arrive at Palms South about 12:15 pm for rehearsal?
smartbrief: Discussion/questions already begun vs presentation — have heard a lot of the social media sessions go this way — a good thing?
smartbrief: Looks like about 40 ppl in the room — nearly 50% of respondants are using social media tools every few hours!
pinnovation: @pattidigh travel safely and have fun!
smartbrief: Huge bummer: “Making Communications Audit Work” session canceled — led by SB partner AABB. We hope all is well
pinnovation: hey twitterpals, if ur not otherwise committed, join McLovin & me 4 “Leadership Lessons from 80s Music” @ 12:30 pm in Palms South!
pinnovation: @pattidigh no matter the outcome in nyc, you’ve already won…best of luck!
cubanalaf: What would you do if you only had 37 days to live? Feeling very inspired after @pattidigh ‘s session.
rrich: It’s too easy to forget that everyone has the shared human experience to connect with
peggyhoffman: theme of the conference – redefine
jamienotter: @pattidigh made me cry. Again.
peggyhoffman: I had no childhood game – aaaaahhhhgggg
randisumner: trust yourself – calculate the risks and rock the boat
peggyhoffman: lesson to me is listen to my kids (okay a little more) be open to all voices
smartbrief: “Love more” — yourself and others! Knowing that there are rules against this … But consider “erring on the side of the hug”

ahissrich: Are we making decisions that are circumstance driven vs value driven? Patti Digh general session
smartbrief: We complain about society + the world (and our orgs) as if we are just visitors here — “we need to be part of the change”
randisumner: there is always always always time for toast! Rec kids (4-7yrs) “wow” books that celebrate toast anytime => mercy watson series
rrich: I’d like to celebrate the big bad wolves. See and enjoy the curves.
randisumner: had a “wow” moment yesterday when I saw a big lizard and a colorful butterfly on the walk to the Legends Ballroom
ahissrich: Patti asks “how do I hold space for other people” .
stevenjs: Simple problems, complicated problems, complex problems learn to identify what is which
ahissrich: We treat complex problems (like finding meaning) as complicated problems (like a launching a rocket)
smartbrief: 3 types of problems: simple; complicated (but ok if we have the rght ppl) and complex, which we often treat like complicated
ahissrich: Three types of problems simple, complicated, and copmlex from Patti Digh general session
ljunker: I wonder how different the story you tell yourself is from the story others see in you.
jkhewett: From Patti’s book – Always rent the red convertible – here’s mine! I did just that last year in SLC
ahissrich: We are story driven animals-so what’s the story we’re telling? Patti Digh general session
ahissrich: @jamienotter me too!
ahissrich: Patti Digh says its the little things that are important

randisumner: has met one of the resort cats and kittens both aptly named cat – any lessons there. I got three. 😉
consciousgovern: @pinnovation Definition of insanity-doing the same thing over and over the same way and expecting a different result
ljunker: Connect your members who are great at building community with others who have potential but aren’t there yet.
smartbrief: Does your members-only page help you recruit? Is there a call to join?
jkhewett: Take home for today: @SmartBrief Again — release control! Empower your members!
jkhewett: and … still stuck on email use!
ljunker: The myth of control is coming up in the discussion on community building in components. Hearing about this a lot today.
smartbrief: One org reports starting a linkedin group resulted in 3700 member updates in a week (total size 85k)
jkhewett: @SmartBrief I think for many it is too early to tell! I’m glad our members read our EMAIL!

smartbrief: @Jeffhurt its their daily, e-newsletter — we create RSS feeds for all partners; auto update daily + drives subscriptions
jeffhurt: RT @ljunker Absence sumthing of value 2 accomplish, [assoc membs] turn 2 minutia 4 something 2 do. Give them work of value
ljunker: In absence of something of value to accomplish, groups can turn to minutia just to have something to do. Give them work of value.
jeffhurt: @SmartBrief Is CTAM SmartBrief news feed online or something yr Cing onsite
ljunker: Frustration with components that spend most of their time on elections and awards …
lindydreyer: @jeffhurt Talking about SEO – I’m really comfortable with SEO, so I guess I zoned out a couple minutes. All good stuff. I approve.
jeffhurt: @SmartBrief re Google, and Twitter Search is for real-time, current search topics.
cliffallen: @jkhewett @lindydreyer I use a personalized URL for each member to see non- confidential content “behind the wall” w/o loging in
jeffhurt: @SmartBrief @jkhewett Yet, members are looking 4 free content, not ed/content they have 2 pay 4. Content should be member benefit
jeffhurt: @SmartBrief Can u expound on decision made to go behind he wall? I didn’t understand.
smartbrief: 58% said their orgs don’t have a content strategy for behind-the-wall materials
smartbrief: Biggest issue? (Sample size of around 40) majority say increasing value of membership + staff time/resources
lindydreyer: @jkhewett – Exactly. If they’re not going to bother logging in to see it, it must not be valuable enough to protect. Thoughts?
jkhewett: I find that many members DON’T log in as they would rather just email me for info. Keep track of login info is problem
smartbrief: Social networking has been part of all 6 sessions I’ve attended tho only central focus for 2 – what a shift
jkhewett: RT @jsfrankel you’re never going to be able to turn off the info stream so you might as well embrace it.
ljunker: Sharon Kneebone, Cynthia D’Amour starting component session: Looking at how components can build community for assns

pinnovation: @pattidigh my vacation home is there…btw, the cockscomb is the jester hat, in case anyone is curious.
pinnovation: @pattidigh no question there are problems to solve, but they can’t be solved @ the same level of thinking…Einstein knew his stuff
pinnovation: @rrich no question that’s true…my concern is that we haven’t raise the level of the conversation to really reflect new realities.
pattidigh: @pinnovation the seeing jester lives outside the village so can see more clearly. most orgs minimize ppl at the edges to be safer.
peggyhoffman: sessions out and lots of chatter – hearing hints of great ideas
pinnovation: is there something in the dna of our orgs that makes it okay for us to expect so little of our most senior leaders?
jeffhurt: 2 Ideas for next Tweet-up by @melaclaro
lindydreyer: RT @FrankFortin – Using Bloglines to follow . Definitely a time saver. – We miss you, Frank!
peggyhoffman: @lindydreyer biggest take-away from the haystack?

frankfortin: Using Bloglines to follow . Definitely a time saver.
pinnovation: @maddiegrant @jamienotter or anyone at the pool tell tom to put his shirt back on…no one needs to see that. :>)

smartbrief: Majority of the room’s assn profs (50+) think that they have a role to play in providing resources to cope w economic downturn
smartbrief: How assns are helping members stay competitive: diff dues scales, help with those out of work — in some cases waving dues
lindydreyer: Heard in the Needle in the Haystack session-need to start moving the needle to a new model, because the age old model is broken.
jeffhurt: RT @SmartBrief [Assoc] Membs C their assn as bing impt 4 networking during downturn not seeing value in assoc helping them 2 cope

jeffhurt: @ljunker How do you get Assoc CEOs 2 listen & stop talking, or 2 consider other’s perspectives?
smartbrief: Members see their assn as still being imp for networking during the downturn, but not seeing the value in assns helping them 2 cope
realtimetrends: – is now the #8 trend on twitter. Follow here: – twIRC Channel:
pinnovation: RT maddiegrant yes i know, but it’s harder 2 do from my bb &i didn’t want their gift of attention 2 go unacknowledged for 2 long.
ljunker: New CEOs should find out why they were chosen (and others weren’t); that helps you understand where board wants to take org.
mickierops: Think of speakers as content contributors to your field’s body of knowledge.
jeffhurt: @pdonahoo What session are you taking?
smartbrief: At session on value of assns in challenging economic times; ow, our ears (sound tech issues)
jsfrankel: this s a study of people who belong to associations – not association professionals
jamienotter: @maddiegrant Want to be at the pool, but will do session and work instead. 😦 Maybe I can finish work and get down there.

greatideas09: Enjoy the sunshine and join us at the Spa Pool for lunch at 12pm.
smartbrief: 1300 of their 7000 members are participating via Facebook — ACEP offers incentives for that (tshirts)
peggyhoffman: extreme speed in engagement seen on SM – no assn is matching that!
maddiegrant: bloggercon: generational issues in focus – only time ever that four generations operating at the same time in the workforce
smartbrief: Created a “chart of needs” – “painful” to develop, but critical to their work today
smartbrief: ACEP learned that depending career life cycle, needs changed — helped them to segment + target
smartbrief: Then asked: how are we doing to meet those needs?
maddiegrant: bloggercon: can we help make a shift from “member” to “citizen”?…
smartbrief: However, 60-80% of members say they are satisfied right before they jet!

jkhewett: If you wait for something to be “perfect” you will miss the opportunity to communicate
jeffhurt: @peggyhoffman Social Media Skillset for an organization, sounds like a great blog post in the making!
maddiegrant: bloggercon: still not clear skill set for finding people who are capable of operating well in this space
maddiegrant: bloggercon: we need to be transparent and we need to ATTRACT people.
jeffhurt: Love this quote: RT @peggyhoffman “we’re all media organizations (yes Virginia associations are changing!)’
maddiegrant: bloggercon: we’re all media orgs now! many associations have no idea how to be that
peggyhoffman: @jkhewett we’re all needing to reset as we see an overhaul of the economic system … some assn/prof are going away ;9
peggyhoffman: controversy sells tickets! if they see in blog you are willing to host controversy then they come to the meeting to continue
maddiegrant: bloggercon: control issue – fear of losing control of the conversation still exists

smartbrief: Final tip – Guarantee it. “If you’re giving a lot of money back, your conference sucks”
jkhewett: @maggielmcg I work where ever my computer is! The office, home, airport, Walmart 🙂
maggielmcg: I hate that people assume that teleworkers don’t work and in-office workers do–couldn’t be further from the truth!
jeffhurt: @maggielmcg I agree! My bad. Should said we looked for anyone who could do it. Only 1s that applied that could were younger.
smartbrief: Marketing tip No 6 – No wild goose chases – pre conf messaging should be focused on getting them to register, link to landing page
jkhewett: @SmartBrief One of my assn clients offers a $ discount if you renew early 🙂
lindydreyer: @maggielmcg Way cool! I think some folks are doing that already on second life.
lindydreyer: @jkhewett What platform do you use to present your webinars?

tweetingtrends: New Twitter Trend :
maddiegrant: well over time but conversation still going. nicely done Lindy and Scott!
agnewfarms: @peterhutchins @maddiegrant I think this is the most Twittering I have seen at a conference so far :
randisumner: try – a tool for creating a daily digest of your twitter that sends to email or to other socialmedia tools

ewengel: twitter as platform where updates can update other platforms in one (blog, FB, etc.)
rrich: Cool, another assn. with a committee on committees
jsfrankel: it’s really not that difficult!
randisumner: @maddiegrant and @jamienotter ? to take the analogy one more step — is there a respected version of “neilsen ratings” for twitter?
ewengel: @jamienotter twitter enforces brevity 🙂
maddiegrant: good analogy from @jamienotter to cable channels – there are hundreds, it’s not about watching every single show
smartbrief: YALSA also handing off duties for other social media (facebook etc) to member groups to take load off staff + engage + keep current

greatideas09: you can find free wireless internet is available in the social media lab.
ewengel: @Jeffhurt show others covering profession/industry – we need to be able to compete – increase SEO
jamienotter: Answer: don’t stress that it is social media. Just talk about how it will help you get content out to stakeholders easily
peterhutchins: @ewengel it’s actually warm in the social media lab.
maddiegrant: sum of voices = brand.
ewengel: RT @ewengel : ? about voice, frequency of posting (keep forgetting the hash to ideas!)
maddiegrant: they plug the blog in Associations Now a little bit but mostly the other way – blog promotes really good article more deeply
ewengel: ? on integrating trad media with socmem
jeffhurt: @ewengel Go Scott! Actually, yr passionate members will support you! You can live n fear or positive attd.
maddiegrant: @Jeffhurt you think so? they can’t not talk about it at all, but I’d say it’s very high percentage about other stuff going on
maddiegrant: They don’t moderate comments before they go live – use captcha to stop spam
jeffhurt: @maddiegrant Really? Seems they have talked about ASAE, frequently.
ewengel: Scott Briscoe debunks the myth of socmed will lead to people trashing the org! Go Scott!
