Abstract

This study is the first to examine the similarities and differences in what motivates and inhibits meeting attendance within generational groups. Three generational cohorts were identified as the older Generation Xers, the younger Baby Boomers, and the older Baby Boomers. The members of four professional associations were surveyed. The results suggest that motivations and inhibitors to conference attendance by all three cohorts were relatively similar, contradicting some literature depicting specific differences between generations.
