There’s a saying that goes, “You must walk before you can run.” It’s wise advice, but it’s hard to follow when there are members to engage with and goals to reach!

Still, it’s easy to crash and burn when associations dive in too deep and too quickly when purchasing or upgrading their technology.

But we have a few tips for that will ensure that your association’s decision to implement new tech gets you started on the right foot and off to the races.
