John Graham of the ASAE on the Impact of Technology on Associations
Through the Noise #74
John H. Graham IV, CAE // President and CEO // American Society of Association Executives
In the 40 years that John Graham has worked in the nonprofit sector, the ways that associations have engaged the public, policy makers, and their members have evolved dramatically. With the advent of mobile technology, fundraising and engagement has become easier, faster, and more targeted – but will any technological advancement be more effective than face-to-face interactions? Mr. Graham joins us to explore this question and four essential elements that nonprofits of all stripes must employ in order to be successful.
John H. Graham has been the President and CEO of the American Society of Association Executives (ASAE) since 2003, and he has been involved in associations for more than 40 years.
