Participants in my first Hackathon prepare to hack it up!

Association #Hackitup
Friday, May 12, 2017
9:00 am – 3:00 pm
Location: Endocrine Society

Be inspired by the thought-provoking, presentations by the graduates of my current Visionary Leadership Academy as they present their final projects to kick off my second Association Hackathon. You and your team will have the opportunity to get creative together, collaborate with teams from other associations – all to come up with new ideas and strategies for your organization, and earn CAE credit.

“I enjoyed the peer-to-peer discussion and hearing what people are doing in their association, their struggles, their wins.”

Jeremy Figoten, National Apartment Association


“There were so many great minds with brilliant ideas in the room. I liked the agenda and listening to the presentations. I enjoyed tackling specific issues that need to be addressed at my association. I am a results driven person who strongly prefers to leave meetings with action items rather than just participating in a brainstorming session so it was a great structure for me.”
