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.
