2. Some tools and techniques you can use to collect good data
3. What types of data can provide which kinds of insights
4. How to use data to drive innovation and decision-making
5. Using data to evaluate progress and measure success
6. How to use data to segment your members

During this interactive session, led by Jack Shand, CAE and Geoff Thacker, Partners with The Portage Group, you will balance sharing better practices with group activities and case studies to learn and engage with peers from associations across the province.
