Association Business Solutions Launches “Creative Leadership Seminar Series”
First Program Focuses on Mobile Application Technology

Trenton, NJ—Association Business Solutions, a full-service Association Management Company (AMC) located in Trenton, kicked off its “Creative Leadership Seminar SeriesABS-w-tagtoday with an informative program on how associations can deploy Mobile Application Technology to advance their mission. ABS partnered with Tallen Technology Rentals in Iselin to discuss the timely topic, one that is gaining notoriety, particularly now in the nonprofit sector.

At today’s session, industry experts Kirk Saboda and Daniel Kralich from Tallen Technologies shared their insight into how the technology works; what apps associations are using; what the latest trends are; and how much associations can expect to pay for the service. They also provided real examples of how the technology is helping associations better engage members, bolster participation at events, strengthen brand loyalty, and drive sponsorship revenue.

“ABS could not be more pleased to partner with Tallen to share this pertinent information with our clients,” said Paula Hartman, principal of ABS. “Whether they are interested in deploying the technology now or perhaps later down the road, today’s seminar provided everyone with greater understanding of a trend that is only getting bigger.”

Today’s mini-seminar is one of several programs ABS will be offering throughout the year to help Association Executives stay on top of their game by exploring cutting-edge topics in technology, management, and organizational leadership. Each complimentary educational seminar is geared toward offering ABS clients specific tips and tactics centered on how they can best position their organization for growth in 2013 and beyond.

“At ABS, we know that CEOs and Executive Directors are pulled in many different directions, expected to do more with less, and faced with growing competitive pressures, ever-changing government regulation, and an increasingly distracted customer-base,” said Karla Pollack,” principal of ABS. “Our 2013 “Creative Leadership Seminar Series” is geared towards helping our clients get ahead in the face of these unprecedented challenges by focusing on what’s new, what’s better and what’s next in their industry,” she concluded.
