Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue

Something old: An article I wrote for the REALTOR AE Magazine in 2004 (when AE Committee Chairman) explaining how being a Sambo's breakfast waitress prepared me for association management.

Something new: After his thoughts on my Twitter post, Kevin Holland's take on what drives the social media disconnect; i.e., how finding the upside to social media (it's specific and direct value) is the approach that can work in getting or expanding association adoption of it.

Something borrowed: NAR's online guidelines/policies for their education and conference speakers. Obviously policies vary from organization to organization, but think how easy to be really specific about details that may drive you, your attendees, and even speakers crazy when not communicated clearly? (such as, to do list, mandatory requirements for handouts, handling promotional materials, bio length, the audience, etc.)

Something blue: Willie Nelson - You Tube. Wishful thinking lyrics: "Blue days, all of them gone - Nothin' but blue skies from now on. Blue skies smilin' at me. Nothin' but blue skies do I see."
