Discover how to use the design thinking process to approach problem-solving and encourage innovation. "Shifting from Informal to Intentional: Pathways to Innovation," presented by Carol Hamilton of Grace Social Sector Consulting, LLC, is a seminar that will show you that by focusing on empathy and iteration, you can create solutions that are grounded in the experience of your stakeholders and informed by their feedback. This helps protect your organization from costly program development that ultimately has no audience. The luncheon presentation is "What Organizations with Healthy Cultures Do Differently." Learn what organizational culture is, explore different styles of it, and review what healthy organizations do to engage their employees.

VSAE’s vision is to be the best at making our members and their associations the best. This year’s annual conference focuses on that goal by highlighting four main content pillars: Data & Risk Management, Marketing, Leadership, and Networking & Sales. With three educational sessions per topic offering the knowledge and training you need to excel for your association and its members, this is one conference you do not want to miss. In addition to top-notch educational content, this year’s event is full of networking opportunities for you and your colleagues. Enjoy receptions, golf, hiking, zip-lining, or archery as part of your conference experience. This year’s pre-conference activities are a great place to unwind, have some fun, and meet fellow association leaders as well.
