As the founder and main worker bee at Rhema Association Management, I have always had to push the boundaries of information technology to do more with less. Having started in the business during a time when abstract submissions had to be typed into a box on an official form and mailed to the society office with 15 copies for the abstract reviewers, I’ve welcomed each new technology advancement. Back in the early 90’s it took a team of four full time worker bees to manage all the details of a handful of growing international societies such as their annual meetings, journal subscriptions, membership applications and dues renewals. With today’s advances in information technology all that and more can be more efficiently managed through a well featured Virtual Office and someone who knows how to choose and use the best technology for the job at hand.
