Quick clicks: Thursdays with zombies
Good morning, and welcome to this week's Quick Clicks!
- Quite possibly the best thing I've ever seen: David Gammel unveils a wonderful cartoon on the Orgpreneur blog. Go see it. Don't worry, we'll wait.
- Laura Otten at the Nonprofit University Blog has a beautiful post on the many people who looked to her father as a mentor.
- A challenging post from Joe Gerstandt on what inclusion really looks like ("Inclusion is not giving everyone a trophy.")
- Shelly Alcorn has strong feelings about the importance of net neutrality for associations and nonprofits.
- Chris Bonney argues that the power of free is in the mind of the giver, not the recipient.
- Carol-Anne Moutinho at the Association Resource Centre blog considers what reverse innovation might look like in nonprofits.
- Jamie Notter is thinking through some very interesting ideas about cultivating strategy without traditional strategic planning.
- Eric Lanke at the Hourglass Blog ponders some potential implications of corporate social responsibility for the association sector.
- I continue to love Jeffrey Cufaude's "Wednesday What If" posts. This week, he encourages us to consider what our members would miss the most if it were eliminated.
- Peggy Hoffman considers ways to make chapters and components more effective.
- Jeff Hurt has a few suggestions for ways to encourage active attendee participation in learning sessions--even from folks who might not initially love the idea.
- Some helpful case study posts: Scott Billey at Associations Live on lessons learned from their first webinar, and Maggie McGary on what she learned on the way to 20,000 Facebook fans. (I guess technically now they're "likers," but as an editor I oppose that word.)
