JUNO Addresses Elephants in the Room for Event, Community Professionals

Online Gatherings Begin in May to Support Association Execs Struggling with Value Proposition of Digital

April 19, 2022Washington D.C. -- Ever sat with elephants in the room? They tend to get in the way.

Intent on clearing the way for new ideas and approaches to bringing people together, JUNO presents a new online discussion series designed to address the big issues head-on.

“People are forever changed, and how we bring them together online and in-person must also change,” says Josh Hotsenpiller, Founder and CEO at JUNO. “We are hearing a lot of struggling, a lot of people faced with that big problem in the room -- the elephant they’re afraid to admit is there.”

“I have no idea how to engage people online.”

“I don’t know what to do with all this data I keep hearing about.”

“Are online events really necessary?”

“How do I attract new members?”

These “elephants in the room” will be tackled starting with transparency from some featured leaders sharing how they are handling their community, event and membership growth with digital tools. The dearest elephant, “I don't know where to start” is another topic that will be addressed as association professionals come together to share and learn.

All the roundtable discussions will take place on connect.junolive.com, a free online community.

“The pandemic was a catalyst for change across events and across industries,” Hotsenpiller said. “But it can be tiring. We know humans crave connection, they seek it online and in-person, so JUNO wants to help everyone understand how it can be achieved.”
