What We do

Consulting at the speed of thought.
Eyes Fixed on the Future

Here at the Association Forecast we do things differently. Trade associations and professional societies are full of promise and potential. We are unapologetically idealistic and obsessed with the idea that associations can and should make a significant difference in the world around us. We work with associations who are committed to positioning themselves to succeed in an era of exponential change. We combine deep learning experiences with disciplined future forecasting. We push boundaries and live for dancing on the edge. Each experience is custom designed to help your volunteers and staff unleash their creative capacity, face challenges head on and create permanent, lasting change. The world no longer plays by the old rules...and neither do we.

Our focus

Standing at the intersection of technology, education and the association of the future.

Advances in artificial intelligence, the advent of the blockchain and the Internet of Things are poised to impact all of us. We explore, imagine and help associations put these changes into actionable context.


A crisis is brewing in in the global education-to-employment system. We challenge associations to see themselves as powerful change agents, uniquely positioned to help solve these wicked problems.


We focus on generational differences refracted through a life-stage lens. We help young professionals develop leadership skills, direct their careers and learn how to create positive change without the “millennial” hype.


New breakthroughs in neuroscience are leading us to re-examine what it means to be human in a living universe. We believe true innovation depends upon blending cutting-edge knowledge with deep, genuine empathy.
