Who Needs Audio Books When Association Chat Is Around?
Long commute? Kiki L'Italien and her team are lively company as they examine trending issues and innovations affecting nonprofits and associations. Although you can watch them live every Tuesday afternoon via #AssociationChat, I often listen to the podcasts later as I'm driving. A nice mixture of topics often crowdsourced by her growing number of followers.
As a guy who owns a business dedicated to helping associations deploy review sites, clearly my endorsement of AssnChat is credible and legitimate!
One of my favorite podcasts...
...and I listen to dozens of podcasts. Whenever a new episode is released, it goes to my "play next" list. KiKi brings in fascinating and relevant guests. I love her questions and commentary--deep and real. A must-listen for the association community.
