CEO Conference

Different by Design: A Master Series for CEOs
Wed., July 12 | 10:45am - 12:00pm & 1:30 - 2:45pm
Today the world is more complex. Competition is everywhere, even from members. Change is occurring faster than we can consume. Innovation and disruption are two of the biggest factors today affecting an organization's success and failure. Associations need to evolve into being the most valuable resource for the industry. 

In the past, MSAE has featured the newest author featured by ASAE publications, research or consultants to lead your discussion. Not anymore, 2017 is different.

This Master Series will offer a CEO round table with other association thought leaders. These are the leaders who balance risk and innovation to make amazing things happen in their organizations.

Discussion will cover:

• Trends in today’s world
• Inspiring innovation at all levels
• Playing to win
• Being tolerant of innovation and the risks that result
• Understanding your risk tolerance and that of the board of directors 
• Importance of talent & community culture
• Alignment

"Lives are changed when people connect. Life is when everything is connected."
Qualcomm Motto
