Every association uses technology to manage and engage their membership.  Every nonprofit cultivates a community through technology in an effort to take their mission and keep it front and center in their constituents lives. With membership and community being cultivated and supported on a day-to-day basis, certain upgrades might need to be made and products developed in order to keep up with the fast-paced life of the average person.
