April 2019

My Perspective, from .orgSource Founder, CEO and Managing Director of Digital Strategy, Sherry Budziak

For a host of reasons, many of which my business partner, Kevin Ordonez, and I are exploring in our consulting work and our research, the freelance economy is changing the way people and businesses work. Associations are being characteristically cautious about embracing this new trend. But freelancers aren’t just a solution to an unforeseen situation. With a strategic and informed approach, they can take your association to new levels of productivity while improving the bottom line.
