How to create an approachable atmosphere at your next association meeting

One of the privileges of working with ASAE was contributing to their national publication, Associations Now.

Before my speech in May, the editor and I got together to talk about how organizations and associations could foster approachability among members and guests.

The piece came out great, even if they did use a picture from when I was 22! (Click on the image to view a larger size.)

Also, sorry it took so long to get it up here. Here's page two with all the "meat" of the article. We included lots of use-tomorrow tips for your organization, applicable ideas, do's and dont's of approachability, and of course, a nice pic of the ol' nametag tattoo to reinforce the value of commitment.


What's the best way to encourage approachability during an association meeting?
