Interview with Joel Block, CPA, CSP about how the system is rigged and how association executives can “rig the rules” to serve the organization. From making points like “Don’t let attorneys kill your deals” and “Use a CPA but don’t expect magic.” Joel recommends to association executives to “sell to the pain” and realize “how badly members need the association.” Contact Joel at http://bullseyecap.com/ or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Ed is the Founder and CEO of the 501(c)(3) non-profit public charity, Cigar PEG Philanthropy through Fun, and president at Rigsbee Research which conducts qualitative member ROI research and consulting for associations and societies. He has been called “the dynamite that broke up our log jam” by association executives—rarely politically correct and almost always provocative—and from a dozen years as a United States Soccer Federation referee, Ed calls it the way he sees it.
