Well, I'm pleased to announce today that I am going in an important new direction in my continuing effort to engage the association community in dialogue around the major issues facing our organizations today and going forward. Beginning May 25, I will be hosting my own Internet radio show called "Inside Associations" on the Association Internet Radio Network. I am very excited about this great opportunity to chat directly with listeners across the association community every other week about how we can work together to build stronger associations and a stronger association community.
Here is the description of the show:
Inside Associations with Jeff De Cagna
Every other Tuesday from 1 pm-1:30 pm EDT beginning May 25, 2004!
Opinion. Perspective. Insight. It's what association staff and volunteer leaders need to successfully navigate their organizations through today's fast-paced and turbulent business environment. Join your host Jeff De Cagna--the association community's leading voice for innovation--for intelligent talk that will challenge prevailing association orthodoxies and expand the scope of what is possible "inside associations."
As loyal subscribers to The Association Innovation Blog know, I will use my radio show to be provocative with a purpose, namely to challenge associations and their leaders to shed outmoded ways of thinking and embrace new and even radical possibilities. I hope you will tune in beginning on May 25 and make the show "appointment listening" on every other Tuesday in the months ahead!
And to get "Inside Associations" off the ground, I need your help. One of the show's original segments will be something I call "Quick Hits." These will be brief commentaries on items or issues that have recently captured my imagination or that of the listening audience, such as a compelling newspaper article or perhaps a book. If you'd like to submit something for me to talk about on May 25 or on any future show, just post it as a comment here on the blog. (For the May 25 show, please post your item by this Friday, May 21.) Be sure to include a link if possible and any information I need to know. If I select your item, I'll mention your name on the air! I'd also love to have your feedback on the show, even before it begins and certainly once we get going. For now, you can post your comments in response to this message.
I'm really looking forward to talking about the issues on which I focus my attention in this new format. I'm also excited about the future possibilities of the show, which will include regular guests and thought leader interviews. Thank you in advance for joining me "Inside Associations" beginning in just NINE DAYS!
