Program Description:

Foresight Works Drivers of Change:  A Strategic Approach to Membership Recruiting and Retention

The ASAE Foundation established ASAE ForesightWorks to be a deliberate, evidence-based research initiative that assists association professionals in environmental scanning and planning for change. The program provides a continual stream of research and resources to empower association leaders to create a culture of foresight in their organizations, leading to a vibrant culture of foresight across the association community. The program envisions a future in which association leaders not only are aware of potential changes ahead, but they are actively engaged with their organizational leadership, their staff, their members, and their peers to plan for and create opportunities from these changes.

Foresight is a critical component of business leadership, but foresight practice can add value and strategic insight to all levels and functional areas of association management. Foresight is not the same as “trends.” Trends knowledge is helpful but can only tell you what people are doing now—not what you may need to know to prepare for the future. The ASAE ForesightWorks research takes a longer view, identifying drivers of change that are or will be important to the future work of associations.

Current Business Priorities:  A Research Review

To help businesses better understand the current landscape and set strategic priorities, PAYCHEX conducted their fifth annual workforce trend study of 450 businesses with between 5-500 employees from various industries across the US.  Learn more about the initiatives that shift the employer/employee relationship and gain insights to strengthen the connection between happier, more engaged employees and volunteers and better business results.

Understanding The Profession's Next Generation

“They think they know everything and are always quite sure about it.”  Aristotle, 4th Century BC
As far back as Aristotle, there was misunderstanding, frustration and concern over the Next Generation.  Join SLSAE to hear from a GEN Z about their philosophy, their work goals and life plans and how they can fit into your organization – both as Volunteers AND Employees.
