I encourage you to check out the blog, We Have Always Done it That Way. Several of my colleagues (David Gammel, Jeff De Cagna, Jamie Notter and Amy Smith) and I are writing a book by the same name about the 101 things about associations we must change, and we're creating our book in blog form to gather feedback and stories to shape the final version.
Check out the blog and please do comment with your thoughts and experiences. Also, be sure to check out the two certification-related posts: Reasons Not Good Enough to Invest in Certification and Time to Stop Thumbing our Noses at Curriculum-based Certification. And keep checking in, as there will be many more thought-provoking posts to come.
