CTI Meeting Technology solutions make it easy for your program committees to collaborate on session building, themes, acceptance criteria, and definition of desired learning outcomes. The easier it is for them to work together, the higher quality content you’ll curate and be able to use in the future to attract attendees to your meeting, gain press coverage from ground-breaking research, and create sustainable revenue streams with your post-event libraries.
Two: Free your staff to make the best possible decisions using real-time data.
Instead of managing and tracking correspondence, creating data bridges between systems, and aggregating spreadsheets, let your staff focus attention on analyzing the stories told by the statistics shown in their personalized admin dashboards.
With exams associated with each abstract or presentation record, eligible sessions can be highlighted in your online and printed programs, included in search parameters, and even taken by participants from the comfort of their own digital devices. Real-time reporting is avialable through our dashboards, and assessments are scored and reported to the test-takers immediately. They can even re-take exams (based on parameters) and both view and print their certificates of achievement post-event.
Four: Integrate your systems for collection and dissemination.
When you connect your abstract collection process with your onsite presentation management process and your post-conference resources library, you leverage the power of all three systems to their fullest. You stop thinking of your content management as steps on a ladder and begin thinking of them as segments of a wheel.
The ultimate content wheel never stops moving. Instead, it revolves ever onward, supplying the best content you can curate in an effortless flow through its lifecycle. Even content that only lives for one year within your educational system is more efficiently handled when it spends its entire year within a single management solution.
If your systems are integrated, at the end of the conference or event, what you are left with is a seamless record of the entire life of that content within your system. You can view the abstract itself, you can see the presentation slides, you can see any associated hand-outs, you can review the comments and feedback from the reviewers, you can see the evaluation data from attendees, you can review the learning outcomes relative to the assessment scores, and you can even see an actual recording of the presentation as it was given.
And perhaps most importantly, any part of this content record is available for further review and discussion as plans for future years and program quality assessments are made. It is available for publication in a printed proceedings, an online proceedings, an executive summary, research reports, and an online video library like ESIR’s.
Five: Feed your engagement and education strategies.
CTI Meeting Technology knows that the final segment of your event content management strategy includes options for repurposing and leveraging the content generated by your events. Whether these are testimonials that you collect through your evaluation process, are direct exports of abstracts and research to your website, or online libraries that include related whitepapers and other knowledge capital, everything that matters from your events and conferences is potential material for your marketing teams to leverage.
CTI Meeting Technology systems begin with this end in mind and are configured to guide staff through the various workflows required to shepherd your content though its entire lifecycle. Libraries can be searched across years, can include free and monetized content, and offer single sign-on access for members if desired.
According to a recent ASAE-published article, the final rule, announced by the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) in May 2016, raises the threshold for employees who are exempt from overtime pay to $47,476 — more than double the current salary threshold of $23,660. In late September this year, ASAE joined the US Chamber of Commerce and other organizations in filing suit to block the ruling from taking effect Dec. 1, 2016.
