2010 Association Technology Survey

BY Jeff Cobb

On April 16, I will be speaking at the Association Executives of North Carolina (AENC) annual Technology Showcase. For the past two years, I’ve provided all of the content for the three-hour seminar portion of the day. This year, I’m thrilled to be joined by Deirdre Reid and Laura Dorner who will be talking about social media and Webinars.

In addition to expanding the range of speakers, we decided that it would be great to collect data on how associations are actually using technology these days – not just within the AENC member base, but to the greatest extent possible, across the U.S. and internationally. So, we’ve launched the 2010 Association Technology Survey.

The survey takes anywhere from 10 to 15 minutes to complete and covers essential topics like Association Management System (AMS) usage, how services are being provided through association Web sites, social media usage, and general planning and budgeting for technology. We’re already getting a good response rate, and all organizations that respond will get a free summary of the data collected.

To encourage participation, respondents will also have the chance to enter into a drawing for one of five $50 Amazon.com gift certificates will be giving away to Tagoras research participants during the month of April.

All survey submission are anonymous and we’re asking that only one person per organization respond. If you represent a trade or professional association, we encourage you or the appropriate person from your organization to complete the survey as soon as possible. (As of right now, we plan to keep it open until end of day on April 14 April 30.)
