Understanding the needs, challenges and opportunities for associations is everything at Social HubSite. Without it, we would just be developing software and not turning it into a solution for associations. Most of our team has work in a management capacity within associations.
Recently, we decided to create a top list of association experts to follow on Twitter to assure we are always staying on top of the latest trends, gaining new insights and simply understanding the challenges that a variety of associations face on a regular basis. As you know, sifting through Google to find quality and relevant information that’s useful can be a job in itself.
We’ve spent a few months, researched, followed and solidified a list of top Twitter handles (accounts) to follow if you are managing an association. Their Tweets demonstrate a focused and consistent effort toward improving associations and sharing useful ideas.
So without further ado, here’s the list:
@wired4ldrship – Helping good leaders become great leaders
