Intro to AI Webinar

You might know where we’re headed – spoiler, it’s New Orleans – and a little bit about our topic areas, so what else could we possibly have left to tell you?

Well, a lot. 

From new pricing options to added strategic sessions, there are plenty of reasons why this year will be the year to attend digitalNow

Pricing Changes

If you’ve already looked at registering for digitalNow 2022, you might have noticed some changes to our pricing – and that’s not a mistake. At digitalNow, our goal is to ensure you get the most value possible, which is why we’ve added new ticketing options to help you achieve your goals as an organization. 

What is the All Access Pass?

The first significant addition for 2022 is the All Access Pass. This pass not only gives you access to General Admission sessions, like keynotes and breakouts, but it ups the value with a whopping four strategic workshop sessions. 

During these keynote-led workshops, you’ll dive deeper into topics, work through any questions you may have and work creatively and collaboratively with attendees from other organizations. This ticketing option is also capped, ensuring attendees get focused time and the highest value from these interactive and solutions-based conversations.

It’s also important to note that individual All Access Passes are non-transferable —unless when purchased as part of a group package, which empowers teams on the ground in New Orleans to identify the person from their organization who will get the most out of each session. 

Should You Bring a Group?

Yes! At Sidecar, we’re committed to finding and empowering leaders at every level, which is why we added a group option for digitalNow. Plus, attending as a team means you can divide and conquer the digitalNow schedule before gathering together to discuss the lessons learned and potential impacts on your organization and membership.

  • Silver Group Access – Two general admission tickets, one All Access pass
  • Gold Group Access – Four general admission tickets, two All Access passes

So who should you think about bringing? While we ultimately leave that up to each individual organization, we believe this is a fantastic opportunity to gather together your top-level C-suite decision makers while also extending invitations to the rising leaders in your organization who can benefit from and contribute to higher-level strategic conversations. Best of all, with your full leadership team in attendance, you’ll be able to start working through the strategies needed to tackle our content topics (more on that later).  

The Rising Leaders Program

Remember that commitment to bringing new association professionals to the table? This goes hand in hand with our Rising Leaders Program (formerly known as Leaders of Distinction).

Designed to introduce up-and-coming leaders into the digitalNow community, winners will be awarded complimentary registration to digitalNow 2022, mentorship and networking support during the event, and a reception to recognize their achievements.

Nominations for our Rising Leaders program will open in late June, so stay tuned and start thinking about the rising leaders in your organization! 

More Keynotes & Strategic Programming

The 22nd edition of digitalNow will bring even more programming and value to our attendees. As you already know, we’ll be tackling some big topics, including Web3 and artificial intelligence, along with association management strategies aimed at integrating and leveraging those technologies to move your organization forward. But we won’t just stop there. 

Hands-On Workshops & Breakout Sessions

With an All Access pass, you’ll have plenty of opportunities – four a day – for strategic planning aimed at answering the most pressing questions and solving the most urgent problems association executives face today. 

Our keynotes also lead these workshops, giving you a unique opportunity to tap into their expert knowledge of applications and implementation strategies for these new technologies.  

Don’t have an All Access Pass? Not to worry. Each day will offer different Breakout Sessions tackling many of the topics that will define the next era of association management. 

Understanding Your “One Thing”

We know that we’re tackling some pretty big topics. That’s why we’re structuring Day 3 as our most important day – the day you identify your association’s “one thing.” 

During a panel discussion with all our keynotes, we’ll focus on bringing these ideas together and developing an action plan to answer the most crucial question – what’s next? 

Whether that means identifying the skillsets you’ll need to look for from future staffers to industry-wide changes that could usher these technologies forward; this session is your opportunity to identify the “one thing” you’ll be focusing on for the next year. 

We’re Keeping Things Fun!

We know that association leaders are coming to digitalNow 2022 to get their organizations ready for the future. And we’re ready to help! But that doesn’t mean we’re skimping on the experience either. 

So, in addition to innovative sessions and un-missable workshops, we’re also making space to create an enjoyable experience with: 

  • The NOLA Experience – New Orleans is our home, which means we have the insights and connections to give you a uniquely local experience. Happy hours at our very favorite spots, delicious eats, and plenty of surprises inspired by our favorite city – you’ll have no shortage of memorable moments. 
  • Team Incentives – As the African proverb goes, if you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together. That’s why creating a team dynamic at digitalNow was a top priority for us. Not only do you have the ability to start formulating a strategy on the spot, but also you have an opportunity to empower new leaders in your organization. 
  • Family Add-Ons – If you’re anything like this writer, conferences are often a great way to spend time with loved ones. We’re making it easy for you to bring a guest to our receptions and happy hours – just look for the Spouse/Partner Pass when registering. 

Registration is now open, so be sure to book your tickets today. And don’t forget: Early bird pricing ends May 11!
