Unleashing the Power of Data: Debunking Myths and Maximizing Impact

Play Video

When it comes to association data, advice abounds on how you “should” collect clean, leverage, strategize and of course capitalize on your data.  

Your data IS valuable but what do you REALLY need to do to use your data to power your organization and not take it over?

To answer THIS question, the CIO Hour has brought in our own “Data Myth Busters” to help you make sense of your managing and realistically using your data to power your organization.  See how a data analytics expert works with an association executive to make it all happen.

Key Takeaways:

  • Discover how the live data you have on hand now is worth MORE per record today than any other time in your organization’s history.
  • How good data management is driving member-led product improvement.
  • Get a mindset that data is truly an asset – and its appreciating!
  • How data can be your crystal ball to success. 

EXTRA 30 ​

Due to the popularity of this topic, we’re adding an EXTRA 30 minutes with the panelists from 3:00 to 3:30. This is your opportunity to ask questions, share ideas and ask your specific questions around managing data with the other participants and panelists.

Happy 2nd Anniversary to the CIO Hour!

It’s also our second anniversary of the CIO Hour – We’ll virtually celebrate somehow, some way during the Extra 30! Join us and see!

How to Submit Questions

The CIO Hour will be recorded each month in case you miss it. However, we hope you attend and engage with the industry experts and other participants regularly so you continue to boost your IT-IQ.

The event is finished.
