Association Foresight

We are excited about the impending launch of our new Medium publication, Association Foresight!

Association Foresight will explore foresight as it pertains to associations and non-profit organizations, their boards, CEOs and other decision-makers and contributors. Posts will include perspectives on plausible futures for associating and associations, actionable insights on the future of governing and advice and guidance on how association and non-profit boards can embrace the duty of foresight.

Follow us on Twitter @dutyofforesight to access foresight content for associations and non-profit organizations, and to find out when Association Foresight will launch!
