Meet the presenter
Amith Nagarajan is an entrepreneur who has served the association and not-for-profit market for over 25 years. As the founder of Aptify, he built a business focused on delivering the tech infrastructure associations needed to modernize and improve their agility. After over 20 years of leading Aptify, he decided to shift his focus, sold Aptify to Community Brands, and launched Blue Cypress, a family of companies focused on transformative change across the entire association space. Blue Cypress is a family of 17 companies and growing. The family of companies are all focused on driving sustainable and meaningful change in the association sector, but, in completely different ways. Each company has a narrow area of focus and expertise in fields as diverse as technology, leadership coaching, team learning, conferences, and many others. By having a team of experts across a diverse array of disciplines engaged in creative ways, Blue Cypress aims to provide associations with resources that will allow them to embrace the disruptive forces that are here to stay and use them to their advantage in the years and decades to come. Amith leads Blue Cypress as the Chairman and is focused on strategy, acquisitions, and association business model strategy.
