Have you ever wondered how to use networking, collaboration, influence, negotiation, and leadership skills to improve individual and team performance? Opening General Speaker Adam Grant, author of Give and Take: A Revolutionary Approach to Success, will illuminate how by introducing three fundamental styles of professional interaction and demonstrating their implication for individuals and collective performance on August 10. He will also give advice on how leaders, managers, and employees can use this knowledge to build richer networks and more innovative teams.

For the Closing General Session, August 12, Noreena Hertz, an international bestselling author and professor and identified by The Guardian as one of the top British Public Intellectuals, will discuss how attendees can make smarter, wiser choices in a more complex environment. These steps include: hiring a Challenger-in-Chief, becoming a digitally-attuned information hunter gatherer, encouraging dissent and difference, and thereby uncovering your organization's wisdom within.    

New this year are Master Mind sessions - high-level conversations around professional development and education, technology, marketing and communication, membership, and meetings and exposition. ASAE will have more than 120 learning labs, which include Game Changers, Snap Learning Spot, Green Safari Tour for Meeting Planners, and an Ignite session. 

The three Game Changer sessions, which are given by influential leaders in business and innovation, are:

  • Kenneth W. Gronbach, demographer-futurist, generational Marketing expert
  • Rafi Mohammed, author of the pricing strategy book, The 1% Windfall
  • Sarah Trahern, CEO of Country Music Association

"As association professionals, we are constantly trying to enhance our skills, inspire innovation within our organizations, and look for new ways to navigate our ever-changing environment," said ASAE President & CEO John H. Graham IV, FASAE, CAE. "Grant and Hertz are smart, lively, strategic thinkers who give new perspectives on building effective networks and making smarter decisions that will give attendees strategies to enhance their organization. These and other education sessions will provide participants with forward thinking ideas."

For this year's community service project, ASAE is working with Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee, which helps feed children, families, and seniors throughout a 46-county service area. Participants will take a tour of the working facility and help sort, pack, and prepare the distribution of food.

For housing this year, attendees will need to register first and receive a confirmation code in order to book a hotel for the annual meeting. For more information, please visit 2014 ASAE Annual Meeting & Exposition website

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain.
A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, whic...
