This year’s Convention Theme, "The Engagement Experience" is a topic that really hits home for me. I have been working for Naylor Association Solutions for about four years now and even though my job is the same as it was at my previous company, it feels completely different. And that’s a good thing. I think engagement, like culture, is something that can’t be faked. Companies can talk all they want about how great their culture is and how engaged their employees are but it doesn’t take long for customers and employees to see if the reality matches the hype.
