Every Tuesday at 2 pm ET, an intrepid band of association leaders convenes on Twitter (using the hashtag #assnchat) to engage in conversations about the future of the association community – conversations filled with substance, serendipity and spirit. This week we participated in ASAE’s Innovation Talks and focused our chat on innovation. Some highlights of the chat are included for you here.
