Associations Next: What’s Next? With David Ewald

In this episode, we are joined by our President, David Ewald, who gives us the rundown on what happened in 2020 and what we can look forward to in 2021.


  1. Associations have suffered alongside individuals and businesses all around the world during the pandemic. Without in-person events, there have been unprecedented challenges to membership and engagement.
  2. We need to learn from how we have adapted during the pandemic. Many of us are now pros at virtual communication. This is a skill that should not be lost once we can be in person again. Use your new skills to your advantage.
  3. Do not expect things to be the same as they were pre-pandemic. Many organizations undergone significant changes during the pandemic. Even once there is a widely distributed vaccine, the world will not look the same as it did before.
