Yes& is Bringing The Possibilities of "&" to the ASAE Annual Meeting


We're bringing the possibilities of "&" to the ASAE Annual Meeting
August 20 - 23, 2022

Can you believe it has been three years since ASAE has had its Annual Meeting in person!? Yes& is so excited to get together in Nashville from August 20-23, enthusiastic as ever to listen, learn, and share our own thoughts on how to inspire associations and their members with a creative spark.

If you’re attending the ASAE Annual Meeting, come “see how we roll”… We’ll be at booth #851. Visit us for a lively discussion & let us put a little Yes& in your day.

Associations need big ideas. We can help.

Now in our 17th year of producing the general sessions at the Annual Meeting, we continuously search for ways to make it more personal and reinvigorate the conference experience. We deeply understand the association experience and have worked closely with many over the years to help them realize their full potential through creativity, empathy, and curiosity.

Yes& is inspired by an improv technique, and our goal is to always deliver on the promise of “&.” We’re bringing the possibilities of “&” to our booth through an interactive giveaway that will challenge you to try something new, get out of your comfort zone, and lead you to discover new possibilities.

Is content strategy top-of-mind for your association?

This year’s ASAE Annual Meeting schedule is packed with great sessions to learn from. If you’re specifically looking to operationalize your content strategy, we have a session you won’t want to miss.

One of our Yes&ers will be co-presenting with our client, the American Forest & Paper Association, on how to take your association’s content strategy and create governance and structure around it to produce flexible and scalable content to meet your goals.

Join Chrissie Koeppen, Yes& Digital Strategist, and Lindsay Murphy, VP of Communications for the American Forest & Paper Association, on Monday, August 22, from 4:00 – 5:00pm for the session, “A Hands-On Guide to Effectively Operationalize Your Content Strategy.”

Strong website content serves as a foundation for any brand's communication strategy, but there's an often-missed crucial step between strategy and delivery: operationalizing your content. Chrissie and Lindsay will review a case study showing content before and after the content strategy was operationalized, including some of the data insights that were used to make decisions. Join for a hands-on guided lesson on how to operationalize your content strategy within your own organization.

Yes& is the Washington, DC-based marketing agency that brings commercial, association, and government clients the unlimited power of “&” – using a full suite of branding, digital, event, marketing, public relations, and creative capabilities to deliver meaningful and measurable results.

Let’s talk about what the power of "&" can do for you.

The creative process is inherently nonlinear, and there’s certainly no right or wrong way to get to a final design result, but there is a ton of opportunity along the way to discover new possibilities. Diving into the process of research, ideating, sketching, and refining is unique for every creative and every project. There are no set rules or guidelines to the creative process that we can share with you to guarantee success. However, there is plenty of structure in what we do at Yes&. We are always thinking and working with the mindset of “&” that takes our work to its full potential. We sat down with Yes& Creative Directors, Brian Domenici, Jen Fose, and Claudia Barac-Roth to interview them on their own personal creative process and how they incorporate “&” thinking into their design.

We often hear about the stress of finding a job or even just enjoying a job—the culture, corporate politics, jargon, expectations, and the relationships established—but what we should be talking about is opportunity and growth within a company.

Ever heard the expression, “Stay ready, so you don’t have to get ready?” Well, September officially embodies that good advice in the form of National Preparedness Month, an annual observance dedicated to raising awareness about preparing for disasters and emergencies that could happen at any time.

Whether we realize it or not, color plays a critical role in our lives. It tells us when to hit the gas, pump the brake, or proceed with caution. It turns our stomachs and makes our mouths water. It can even make us happier. Color is more than what we see with our eyes. It is a powerful tool that silently communicates and influences behavior. From how an office is decorated to increase productivity or inspire creativity, to selling a new car model through a TV commercial, color is used to stimulate our brains. Studies have shown that people decide whether or not they like a product in 90 seconds or less. Around 90% of that decision is based solely on color. Additionally, an individual’s reaction to a color can be deeply personal and rooted in their own experience. So, it’s important that a brand selects the right color to communicate their message to a specific audience, using color psychology to their advantage.
