Our nation is in the early phases of building a new version of itself. For the past six months, we have been in a perfect storm of epic proportions. No citizen has been untouched by dramatic changes to their lives. As multiple external forces continue to pull at the frayed threads that form the fabric of many American organizations, it seems as if evolution and revolution are arriving at the station on parallel tracks.
â€œShark Tankâ€ entrepreneur and Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban recently spoke about how the current business situation is both a challenge and an opportunity: â€œWhen things are all messed up beyond recognition, that's when the heroes step forward and create things, invent things, and develop things that change the world. And that's what's needed right now. If you have a vision for America 2.0, now is the time to act.â€ I believe Mark Cuban is right; association leaders need to step forward, create, invent, develop, and change the world. Now is their time to act.
