Are You Ready To Compete?

Open Source is out there. Anyone with a few hundred bucks in their pocket could be coming to steal your members. Are you ready?

Good Afternoon,

I'm not sure I agree with the tagline of anyone with a couple hundred bucks could steal your members. And if this is true then the association has some serious problems outside of just technology.

While it is true I could easily challenge my own association by developing a social network, blog and series of podcasts, I won't have any content, thus providing little to no value. I imagine I might get some inital responses, but no long term members.

Instead I would advise associations to utilize the new technologies to increase the value of current offerings to ensure noone sneaks up behind you and steals your members because they provide an overall better experience (Delivery and Content)
