While some of you already know this, the other night on Twitter, an impromptu conversation started about whether or not professional associations in Higher Education should invest money in development of Conference Apps versus providing free access to WiFi at their respective national conference locations. Here is the “Storify” of that conversation. I’m interested in your feedback and hope the conversation and information is shared with those planning events next year. Thanks to all those who engaged with me and answered the questions so thoughtfully.
The big takeaway is to make sure you ask your respective membership what they are more interested in and if you can do both, then do so!
After reading the tweets below, what do you think? Should professional associations be investing their time and money in developing a conference app or finding a way to provide free access to WiFi?
