Your association is growing. It’s time to look at new membership management software to support your changing needs. Here are some helpful tips on how to convince your board it’s time for new technology.
As your association grows, its needs evolve. At the same time, advances in technology don’t stand still for associations, no matter how tight their budget may be.
Failing to keep up with the techno curve, can cause your organization to fall behind. In fact, it can cost you more in lost time and money than taking the step toward new technology.
But not everyone at your organization understands the challenges with your existing association management software (AMS), much less envisions the value a new solution could bring. You need to persuade your organization with a compelling case to consider new software.
The trick is to communicate how to balance the cost of doing nothing with the cost of spending on new technology in an environment where every dollar is allocated to supporting your organization’s mission.
Your ability to identify your organization’s biggest tech challenges and needs will help you better outline options to your board for their review and approval. Based on a clear understanding of these options, you can present a set of recommendations your board is more likely to approve.
