Happy Labor Day: Last One with Boomer majority!

As you enjoy the day, take time to celebrate the final year of “Boomer domination” of the workforce.

That’s right. Starting next year (2015), millenials will be the majority of workers in the U.S.

Are you ready for that? 

The challenge for associations is that Boomers still dominate as board members and executive staff.

We are in the middle of the largest shift in talent in history. More than 79 million millenials are entering the work force. They are candidates for association membership. But, they are different and do not join for the same reasons as Boomers.

Is your association making the transition? Is the transition being led by Boomers or is your association finding ways to engage millenials in making changes?

If you have not yet read Sarah Sladek’s new book Knowing Y, grab it, read it, share it with board members.

Meanwhile, enjoy your Labor Day celebrations!
