Association peers often ask what resources I scan to the find information technology best practices or macro trends which impact association business now and into the future. For best practice information, I compiled links under “In the Box” resources list; for trends and cutting edge information, check out “Out of the Box” and lastly, because much of what drives business information technology comes from users and consumers (think BYOD), I follow lots of gadget and consumer electronics websites which are gathered under “Consumer Sources.”
