Oct 1, 2018
Welcome to Association Chat News! I’m your host, KiKi L’Italien, and let’s talk about this Association Chat News flash briefing for the first week of October – October 1, 2018.
This is the 4th quarter of 2018 and this is about the time we start to see a few predictable things happen in the association space.
If you are in any kind of communications or marketing, you are already looking at the “How to End 2018 Strong” or “Top Trends to Know About for 2019” types of content.
As much as I like to smirk at titles like this, I click on more of those types of items than anyone else. Here’s what I’m thinking are my “Top Three Ways to End 2018 Strong for Association Chat”:
So that’s my Association Chat plan for the last three months of 2018. What’s on your agenda? Share your plans with me by tweeting me @kikilitalien using the hashtag #associationflash. I’m curious to find out what others are planning and I think sharing our goals can sometimes lead to better outcomes.
On this week’s Chat interview I talk with American Mensa Ed/CEO Trevor Mitchell about how Mensa is leveraging cultural influences to enhance its brand through new partnership and licensing opportunities, as well as discussing how the membership is shaping the perception, our perception, of high intelligence.
You can hear all that and more on Tuesday’s chat live at 2 pm EST.
Be sure to visit the Association Chat Facebook Group and if you love this flash briefing and live interviews, please consider becoming an Association Chat Patreon patron. You can support these efforts for as little as $1 a month.
