Online chat

Have you tried Blab yet? Blab is a live-streaming video platform that’s really taken off in the last several months. A lot of its user-generated content, like on every social media platform, is self-promotional garbage, but there’s good stuff if you know where to look. For example, every Tuesday at 2:00 p.m., consultant KiKi L’Italien hosts Association Chat on Blab. This is the same chat (#assnchat) that used to take place every Tuesday on Twitter – it’s moved to Blab.

Blab is easy to use. You can watch and listen to the hosts and guests who appear in four large boxes on your screen. You can chat in the sidebar with the hosts and other viewers. And, you can even request to go on camera yourself by taking someone’s seat. Social Media Examiner explains Blab in more detail.

This Tuesday, February 9 at 2:00 p.m., the chat topic is: How Associations are Attracting Millennial Members. This time, consultant Amanda Kaiser is hosting with association execs Karen Hansen and Amalea Híjar who, according to Amanda, are doing some really cool things and will bring both small and large association perspectives to the chat.

You can see (and suggest) future topics on the Association Chat Facebook group.

That’s it until next week! If your company or organization is hosting a professional development opportunity for the association community, please let me know by giving me a shout-out on Twitter.
