Virtually every association, both large and small, struggles to keep its data clean.  Yet data is your most valuable asset!  It powers everything that an association does, and dirty data can have a very tangible cost.  In this session we will explore data hygiene: why it is important for operational and staffing efficiency, how to organize your team and create a data cleanup plan, and discuss some modern approaches to addressing data cleanup using automation.

Learning Objectives
