Ron Insana of CNBC to provide tailored economic outlook for associations
NEW YORK (March 5, 2014) — Kellen Company, the global leader in association services, conference planning and communications, announces Associations: 2020 and Beyond, a conference for trade association and professional society leadership that will explore critical issues facing these organizations. Executive staff and volunteer directors of organizations are encouraged to attend the conference, June 20, 2014 at Apella Event Space in New York City.
“Association leaders cannot afford to simply react to the ripple effect caused by changes within their industry sectors, national and global economies or social and political issues. Associations need to anticipate and be at the forefront of developments that could impact their organizations and members,” said Peter Rush, Chairman and CEO of Kellen Company. “Being uncertain about exactly what the future will bring is not a reason that associations cannot be prepared for what may happen. This conference will help bring into focus what lies ahead from threats to opportunities.”
Associations: 2020 and Beyond will feature keynote addresses by Ron Insana, financial analyst, senior analyst and commentator, CNBC and Sarah DaVanzo, futurist and chief cultural strategy officer, Sparks & Honey. A panel discussion with top association executives will present strategies for dealing with critical issues such as rapid advances in technology, membership retention and growth, industry consolidation, non-dues revenue generation, demographic shifts and more. Associations: 2020 and Beyond will provide association leaders with applicable case studies, specific strategies and tangible advice for tackling the challenges of today and tomorrow.
“Attendees will hear from peers within top associations who have begun addressing challenges such as distance learning, technology integration and alternate dues models,” added Rush. “Authorities with industry tailored views on major challenges will go beyond the usual overview on such topics.”
