Why going global is critical-and inevitable-for your association's growth and survival

Multiple case studies of associations that have entered the global arena will be included.

  • Underscores how the advantages of changes outweigh the risks
  • How adapting to new market trends is an act that cannot, and should not, be avoided
  • Offers a problem-solution guide to potentially intimidating questions about the process
  • Explains how small associations may often have an advantage over large corporations due to flexibility

Avoid mistakes made by other organizations by going global and ultimately following the paths of those who accomplished their goals.
