Based on tremendous interest by members seeking to construct a framework for delivering virtual educational events, VMAE | Summit 2020 was created – a virtual conference that will deliver the educational content you’ve requested, the interactive sessions you value in developing practical solutions, and the social experiences you love that connect you with your professional community!
While most of us would have preferred to introduce a virtual event on our own decision criteria and timeline, the uncertainty of knowing when face-to-face meetings will be possible has forced a new reality. Now is the time to develop your VMA’s strategy and implementation plan for delivering virtual learning experiences.
The practical opportunity is to mitigate revenue and reputation risks associated with meeting cancellations. This also represents an opportunity for veterinary medical association executives to affirm the brand promise of their organizations and to serve as learning leaders by maximizing the reach, revenue, and impact of your programs.
Jeff Cobb and Celisa Steele, the co-founders of Tagoras, have more than 40 years’ combined experience in the world of adult education and learning, and the majority of that time has been spent working with associations and similar learning businesses to set strategy, see the implications of trends, understand how technology might help them, and better understand their market so they can offer learning products and services that deliver greater reach, revenue, and impact.
Jeff and Celisa will be joined by Josh Goldman, MA, CAE, CTA, a Senior Consultant with Tagoras. Josh has held executive leadership positions in local, state, regional, national, and international membership associations and nonprofits with strategic responsibilities including education, membership, component relations, partner/business development, employer services, competency, credentialing, standards development, and global market entry. During the association pandemic response he has been working with clients who need to rapidly implement online learning tactics while often concurrently considering their overall learning business strategy and value propositions.
