This year, Fusion Productions teamed up with the Southeastern Institute of Research, Inc.

The Social Media Honeymoon is Over
Remember how excited you were when your organization first adopted social media? We all started blogs, opened Facebook accounts, and Twittered to our hearts’ content. In fact, the latest research indicates that the average corporation has 178 social media accounts, yet has no idea whether they are receiving a return on the time and energy they’ve invested. Getting quantifiable results from social media is a key issue for you as an association leader.Susan Etlinger, Industry Analyst at Altimeter Group is regularly interviewed and asked to speak on social strategy and best practices for business, and she has been quoted in outlets including The Wall Street Journal, Businessweek, The San Francisco Chronicle, and FastCompany.Susan has a deep grounding in interactive marketing and social technologies, advising start-ups to Fortune 500 companies on social media best practices and strategic plan development. She has launched dozens of companies and products and counseled businesses through crisis born out of the Big Bang and large-scale organizational initiatives.

Is Technology an Amplifier or Disruptive Force for Associations?
Emerging technologies such as mobile devices, social networking, and cloud computing have already had substantial impacts on associations - and those impacts will expand both in number and in severity. While some are enablers and accelerators, others are disruptive to associations’ business models. How will they affect the value of membership? How will they impact operations? How will associations need to evolve because of them? Learning outcomes: See how emerging technologies fundamentally shift the value of membership and explore what associations can do about it; Understand how the focus on core competence directly impacts IT strategy;Hear how IEEE shifted the culture of its IT staff to better address the adoption of emerging technologies and its partnership with business units.Who should attend this session? Executive Directors, Chief Information Officers, and Membership Directors.

The convergence of technology, design, and leadership
John Maeda's work includes examining where design, technology, and leadership merge. He is a world-renowned artist, graphic designer, computer scientist and educator whose career reflects his philosophy of humanizing technology. For more than a decade, John has worked to integrate technology, education and the arts into a 21st-century synthesis of creativity and innovation. At RISD, in his books, and on stage, Maeda champions the necessary role that artists and designers play in the new creative economy.Formerly a professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, John has been President of RISD since 2008 - the same year that Esquire magazine named him one of the 75 most influential people of the 21st century. As RISD President, he seeks to connect his students to the political, economic, social, and business spheres where artists and designers will make a difference. At digitalNow, John will bring the community to a richer understanding of how the convergence of design, technology, and leadership both affect and empower associations.
