The COVID-19 situation is having a massive impact on the association community and as a result industry's future landscape is bound to transform.
On 9/11, Americans discovered they are vulnerable to crisis they thought could only happen in distant lands. The Global Financial Crisis in 2008 has showed us that we too can suffer the crisis of past eras like the economic meltdown of the Great Depression.
But every crisis has two sides - a challenge and an opportunity. As such, it's not just a matter of getting the association community engine restarted. The collective association ecosystem must understand what has changed, and what will be the best position for the industry to grow together and become a global force once again.
While the exact timeline of recovery is unclear the impact will eventually pass. Looking back at the history of two of the worst economic disasters in the United States, what are the lessons learned to understand how to better prepare Associations for the future?
