PRESENT YOUR IDEAS AT FORUM FORWARD 2015
Have an idea that will challenge association professionals to think differently? Or a business solution to share? Help your colleagues overcome the sentiment, “We’ve always done it that way,” by presenting at Association Forum’s revamped annual meeting--Forum Forward 2015--taking place June 16-17 at Chicago’s McCormick Place®. The Forum Forward™ Working Group is looking for unique, high-impact education content on marketing, expanding revenue, technology or future association models. All submissions must be received by Dec. 31. Review the criteria and details before submitting your proposal.
DONATE TO THE DIAPER DRIVE
Did you know that an adequate supply of diapers for just one child costs around $100/month? For families experiencing financial hardships, this expense can be a tremendous burden. Please join Tourism Vancouver and the Vancouver Convention Center in supporting families in need of essentials bydonating a pack of disposable diapers at Holiday Showcase® 2014 (there will be a bin in the registration area) or at the Association Forum office. Donations, which are currently being accepted, will benefit ChildServ.
GLAMOUR AND GIVING
It may be cold, but it’s not too early to consider the community’s hottest tradition of the year: Honors Gala.

Key industry leaders are presented with the Association Forum’s Honors Awards (we will begin accepting nominations for the 2015 awards very soon). Suppliers: Host your top clients and prospects. Association professionals: Reward and celebrate your staff. Don’t miss the 2015 event, happening June 18. Sign up to receive notifications on Honors Gala 2015.
