The COVID-19 situation is having a massive impact on the association community and as a result industry's future landscape is bound to transform.
Every crisis has two sides - a challenge and an opportunity. As such, it's not just a matter of getting the association community engine restarted. But also, the collective association ecosystem must understand what has changed, and what will best position the industry to grow together and become a global force once again.
What you do over the next months to position yourself and your association to your members could make a huge difference. While the exact timeline of recovery is unclear the impact will eventually pass. Now is the time to start thinking how to better prepare Associations for the future.
The Association community need to look forward into the future, how to survive and ready themselves for a revival.
