|Title||Crystal Ball – Association Retrospective from 2020 and a Look into the Future|
|Date||Thursday, November 12, 2020|
|Description||When it comes to planning for the future, what better guide than a look back to the past. While 2020 has been quite the year, chalked-full of change and uncertainty, many industry trends and learning lessons have emerged along the way.
Join this all-star panel for a diverse, C-level perspective. We’ll discuss change management and case studies from associations and nonprofits working and thriving in the trenches, and their “crystal ball” predictions for 2021 and beyond.
