Here at Alcorn Associates 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.
Providing virtual transformative experiences to rapidly build individual and organizational capacity so you can cope with an increasingly unpredictable future.
We no longer engage in traditional strategic planning. Rapidly complexifying global conditions and impacts from climate change require a radically different approach from everyone. We focus on deep adaptation strategies built around resilience, relinquishment, restoration and reconciliation.
We have been conducting the annual NextGen Summit for the American Society of Association Executives for eight years. If you are seeking a way to ignite and attract younger members, dedicated experiences like this can not only accelerate their careers but deepen their participation in your association.
There may no longer be an Oracle at Delphi, but you can have access to the Oracle of Shell-i instead. We use an organized, evidence-based approach to cast out into the zeitgeist and help bring actionable intelligence back to you so you can adequately evaluate current plans and potential future scenarios.
Ready to equip yourself for the new world that is coming? We have developed our own approach using a blend of strengths-based assessment and integral theory. We can work with single executives or groups to ensure your individual and collective practices are in deep alignment with your shared purpose.
If you need a conference keynote that will wake your audience up, you have come to the right place. Shelly speaks on current social issues and trends in technology all from a lens of resilience and future-forward strategy. Due to concerns about climate change, in-person presentations are limited.

Longevity stands for something. We have been there, done that and we are uniquely positioned to understand you, your staff and your volunteers.
We approach each situation with a beginner's mind. We deeply listen and then help you make sense of the situation you are in. We are able to deploy convergent and divergent thinking, as well as analysis and synthesis to help you get to the heart of the matter and then design the right solution.
We actually care about you and the current global situation we all find ourselves in. We are fully engaged in uncomfortable realities like climate change and our need for social justice, and we tell you the truth about what it will take to adapt to a rapidly changing world.
