2018 MASTERS CONFERENCE

NEW DATE - April 25, 2018

Regional Learning Alliance

850 Cranberry Woods Drive

Cranberry, PA 16066

EVENT INFORMATION

This year’s conference will focus on leadership and finding the next generation of members using social media and other marketing tools. 


Coloring Outside the Lines: Lessons Learned from Steve Jobs – Jeff Tobe, Coloring Outside the Lines 

This fast paced, fun, and content-rich program combines Jeff Tobe’s presentation on how to go beyond service to consider the customer experience, with lessons learned from Steve Jobs on creativity and innovation.  Interspersed in Jeff’s presentation are clips from a never-before-seen 1995 interview with Steve Jobs.  Jeff inspires thought and discussion with participants on the future of the association profession, considering where it has been and where it is going.  Jeff ties it all together by getting people to think like Steve Jobs thought.  No matter what your past impressions of Jobs might be, he was a master of ‘disruption’, and Tobe provokes audiences to think about how they might disrupt the association profession AND become more “customer-centric”.  We now have to consider our member/customer ‘touchpoints’, take ownership, and tweak them to change the customer experience…leading to attaining and retaining members/customers.


Strategic Planning Round Table – Led by Angela Stengel, Executive Director, American Society of Regional Anesthesia and Pain Medicine 

Join 4 local association leaders as they discuss their Strategic Planning Process including how often they revise their plan, who is involved in the process, and how the strategic plan is implemented.  The attendees will be encouraged to share their questions and experiences with our panel.


The Essence of Self Leadership – Michael Kumer, Boards Made to Order

Join your colleagues for a “brain tsunami” and learn the fundamentals of self leadership.  You’ll leave the workshop with a treasure chest of self-improvement tools, tips, and techniques, which you can start to apply immediately. The best part?  Enhanced self leadership is the necessary prelude to effectively leading others!  Sample topics include: spotting opportunities in every challenge; a new definition of success; moving beyond guilt and worry; an antidote to "blame and complain"; attitude is everything; the incredible power of choice; inspiring others; and changing the world as you change yourself. 

Optimizing Social Media for Recruiting – Christie Knott, Predictive Synergistic Systems

Recruiting talented staff is challenging.  This session will discuss the recruitment landscape, job design, and candidate interest.  The attendees will then be given strategies to attract the talented staff they need using social media – job boards, career communities, and search engines – to optimize their recruiting efforts.


Marketing to the Next Generation of Members – Led by Michele Feder, Materials Research Society

Every association struggles with getting the next generation of members involved.  Join our marketing leaders from associations and our vendor community as they discuss ways to reach that generation. Expect to hear about new ways to communicate including social media as one tool to reach them.


We look forward to seeing everyone 

on April 25th.
