Web 2.0 Tools for Associations

Social media and Web 2.0 tools are all the buzz in the association world. Rightly so. The rise of social networking sites threaten associations with disintermediation. The tools simultaneously offer associations that adopt them new ways to grow and strengthen their community of members.

The American Society of Association Executives (ASAE) is taking a leadership role in advancing the use of Web 2.0 tools and social media by associations. I'm a member and find value in my ASAE membership. Members get special access, but there is plenty of free stuff on their site. Their association wiki is open to view. Here's a link to their wiki page that provides a great introduction to Web 2.0 tools.

I use ASAE stuff all the time. Are you going to San Diego this year?

Thank you for your kind words about our website and wiki (and your membership)! It's great to hear that you find them to be valuable. If there's ever anything you can think of that you'd like to see more resources on, that we're missing, please let me know--we're always looking for new ideas and feedback.

Thank you again, and have a great morning!

@Steve, I won't make it this year because of conflicting schedules. It sounds like it will be a good meeting. San Diego is fun. Lots of good bars and restaurants. The corner around Croce's is good with a nice jazz club on the south corner and a great dive bar with live music everynight just a few doors west of Croce's.

@Lisa, Thanks for stopping by and for your comment. I'll keep in touch. Have a great day.
