Association Chat: Associations and Globalization

As the world seems to get smaller with the aid of technology, many associations have already expanded internationally or are looking to grow overseas in the future. But what makes an association a "global" organization versus a national organization with international ties? How do associations balance growth in their home countries while investing in growth internationally? What considerations do associations need to take when going global?

These are some of the issues we'll be discussing in this week's Association Chat. 

Questions for this week's chat:
  1. When should an association consider globalization?
  2. What might be some red flags for organizations looking at globalization indicating they shouldn't proceed?
  3. What are some considerations that need to be taken for leadership opportunities within an association attempting to go global?
  4. How would globalization potentially impact an association's delivery of services and benefits?
  5. What are some approaches that global associations use to make sure dues are fair for all members, no matter their location?
  6. How would marketing and communication plans be affected by an association becoming global?
  7. How might you develop strategic partnerships in other countries to support your organization's expansion?
  8. What are the keys to long term success with globalization efforts?
