Future Jobs: Solving the Employment and Skills Crisis

by Edward E. Gordon

More than 30 million Americans are unemployed, underemployed, or have given up on looking for a job. Undoubtedly, the massive economic downturn after the financial crisis of 2007–2008 is a key factor in this situation. But the U.S. job market has stalled because our nation is failing to produce workers with the right skills, not because we cannot create enough jobs for the workers.

Thirty years after women became 50 percent of the college graduates in the United States, men still hold the vast majority of leadership positions in government and industry. This means that women’s voices are still not heard equally in the decisions that most affect our lives.

Race for Relevance: 5 Radical Changes for Associations

by Harrison Coerver and Mary Byers

Race for Relevance provides a no-nonsense look at today's realities and how associations operate and what they need to do to remain relevant in the future. Based on more than 40 years of combined experience working with more than 1,000 organizations, the authors examine 5 key areas where the traditional approach that organizations have taken in the past needs to be altered. (ASAE/Jossey-Bass Series)

Whether you are considering an entirely new direction for your chamber or you just want some guidance in asking the right questions to make sure you stay current, Race for Relevance provides a thought-provoking framework.  In covering governance, staff empowerment, market awareness, program alignment and technology, the book takes on business-as-usual by building a strong and provocative case for change.  From the start, it had me hooked; so much so that we have used it at both a committee and staff leadership team level to shape meaningful (and ongoing) discussions about our chamber’s future.  A must read for any chamber evaluating their business model.
