VMAE Members Get Noticed!

Two VMAE members have been quoted recently about developments in two domains of association management:

  • In a thought piece authored by Bob Harris, CAE, of the NonprofitCenter.com, about key performance indicators in successful organizations, Bob included comments from Kim Brown Pokorny, executive director of the Wisconsin VMA. Kim stated “I don’t just want to improve it – I want to measure it long-term so we are able to identify areas of concern or question through the dashboards and then determine the ‘why’ there is a change.” Bob recently asked an audience of elected leaders “What should the board monitor?” and you can find their answers here.
  • If you’re thinking about how mobile apps might benefit your association, Amanda Meeks, executive director of the Oklahoma Veterinary Medical Association, has something to say! In a blog post by MobileUp Software, which provided a launch story about how OVMA leveraged its annual conference to introduce a new app to its members, Amanda stated “Our members liked the convenience of having the conference information available in the app, and we are looking forward to using the app all year by adding membership and other features. We believe it will provide a higher level of communication and engagement between our association and members moving forward.” Take a look at the full blog post here.
