Affiniscape Kicks Off Connections 2011

More Than 100 Associations Join Forces at Affiniscape's 7th Annual Partners Conference

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire - Dec 5, 2011) - Affiniscape, the only technology and services provider focused exclusively on serving state and local associations, has officially kicked off Connections 2011, its 7th Annual Partners Conference, running December 5-8, at the Driskill Hotel in Austin, Texas. More than 100 Associations representing over 20 industries are in attendance to receive training on the company's products and services, and to connect with their peers, share ideas, and learn the newest strategies for driving greater member value through their organizations.

Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in more than 30 educational sessions covering professional development, social media strategies, generational differences, emerging business practices, and how to more effectively leverage technology in the daily operation of their associations.

Erin Moeller, Director of Conventions and Marketing for the California Pharmacists Association, commented, "I attended the Affiniscape Conference last year and learned so much more than just the conference objectives! Without the conference, I would not have built the relationships with other pharmacy staff that I use all year, nor would I have learned about how other industries use the Affiniscape platform in ways that can also benefit my association and my members."

"The Annual Partners Conference is always the highlight of our year," added Affiniscape Founder and Chief Strategist Adam Weedman. "It's an invaluable opportunity for our staff to connect, learn from, and share ideas with our partners to ultimately design the products and services we offer and help them move the ball forward. We're honestly our partners' biggest fans -- and so we're thrilled to have them in town with us for the week."

The four-day conference swings into gear Tuesday morning with a keynote presentation from international best-selling author Tim Sanders, who highlights the importance of building strong relationships to drive success. Get the relationships right and "you will grow your organization in good times and bad." Sanders is the author of Today We Are Rich: Harnessing the Power of Total Confidence and Love is the Killer App.
