To better serve the association community, I made it my mission (well, okay the ASAE Technology Council might’ve had something to do with it) while attending ASAE 11 in St. Louis last month to video bomb the brightest technologists in the association world. And boy, did I hit the right reception.

Tech Tip #1 – Cynthia D’Amour on Navigating your Mobile Device

Well, yes, that pesky power button is important after all. (Thanks, Cynthia for having fun with the video bomb!)

If you haven’t had the chance to meet Cynthia or see her speak, she’s the incredible Leadership Strategist behind People Power Unlimited, LLC and Founder of the Chapter Leaders Playground.

I’ll be video slamming tech tips from various thought leaders in the community in the upcoming weeks leading up to the ASAE Technology Conference in December. Wanna be bombed? Contact me at kyleecoffman[at]


Okay, so end of Summer (at least psychologically) and post Labor Day celebrations. My own holiday included a hell of a lot of wedding invitation stuffing & mimosas. Case in point:

Acronym Soup blogger, sister, & calligrapher to the stars - KiKi L'Italien

After several trips to PaperSource and far too few mimosas, I have to admit that my family, future family, and friends are really an incredibly talented, supportive bunch. Rebekah Sasek designed our invitations and save-the-dates and spent hours cutting paper with us into the wee hours of the night. If you’re in need of a creative designer (or just want to see a really cool Teddy Roosevelt tattoo), definitely check her out! I’ll add some better photos of the full design soon.

Aside from the five week count-down, I’ve been hard at work developing mobile apps & social media campaigns for our upcoming conferences, prepping for an SEO and social media training course for my colleagues, and moved into a new office today. I’m debating if some of this Holler & Squall housed taxidermy featured on the Hollister Hovey blog would be too much for a politically charged trade association. Thoughts?
