How to Run More Efficient, Secure Elections

Elections require a delicate balance of transparency and privacy. You want your members to know and trust the process and the results. But sometimes you also want to protect the privacy of individual choices. There's also the chance of human error if making a group decision the old-fashioned way: by a show of hands, or by counting scraps of paper.

That's why Pete Westerhaus and Tony Hoff are with us today to talk about the benefits of using an electronic balloting system like the one Survey and Ballot Systems offers. Their DirectVoteLive platform is a cloud-based system of conducting elections or voting on initiatives.

Pete, an account manager for Survey and Ballot Systems, and Tony, their marketing director, explain how software like DirectVoteLive makes balloting in any size association easy, quick, and most importantly, secure.

This is a topic we've never broached before, but given the larger climate these days, we felt it was important to address, if only to get associations thinking about the integrity of their own elections and decision-making processes.

ASAE's Annual Meeting is Aug. 13-18! While we're disappointed we can't meet everyone in person this year, we hope the online format means many of you will be able to tune in again for a few days of education, networking, and fun. We'll have a team in attendance online and we hope to chat with you about our member engagement and non-dues revenue solutions.

Our Chief Revenue Officer Walt Phillips will lead what's sure to be an intriguing Q&A session with the dynamic Baratunde Thurston for the opening keynote. Join us for an Action Lab to talk about how your association will strategically plan in our next normal.

If you're going to be there for the education sessions, check out Digital Summit's Senior Sales Director Cedric Fellows's Express Talk on Monday, August 16 titled, "Will Your Sponsors Succeed at Your Next Virtual Event?" It's a 20-minute talk about ways you can improve your sponsorship offerings for virtual and hybrid conferences.

We'll see you online August 13-18!
