Equation

This + This + This + This + This + This + This = Really, really, really, really, really, really, really sad.

I don't mean the bloggers are sad in any way, just the state of affairs.

Please add This to the list.

Oh, and Dave's two posts on this topic were awesome. I'm glad to have Dave among the group of bloggers that no one is reading. :-)

Ben,

You hit the nail on the head! I appreciate the warm welcome and find myself in great company being counted among the ranks of some really strategic thinkers that are trying to make a difference in the association world.

I guess the obvious next question is where do we go from here?

I look forward to the dialogue that with any luck will proceed and the solutions that are out there waiting to be found.

What's next? 3 words: Guerilla Marketing Campaign. I'll set up a stunt in DC when I'm in town Thursday that'll get everyone talking about. Oops. That might get me put on the watch list.

Seriously, though, the saddest part about this whole discussion is that it's just us bloggers commenting on each others' stuff. Here I go commenting on my own post -- sheesh!

I have some more thoughts on this to share, eventually, if anyone's reading.

Well, at least we have identified a / the problem and have started a dialogue. If it were only you commenting to yourself, you'd have to change your blog title to "Certifiable Association Executive".

A Guerilla Marketing Campaign isn't a bad idea...but I don't know if our collective pockets are big enough to bail you out of the slammer if your creative thinking goes bad. Then again maybe it's exactly the type of infusion of energy and attention that we need.

I look forward to hearing your thoughts and I suspect others do as well...lets keep the dialogue going and see where it leads us...
