Association news
Published on 15 March 2022

Last week we held our first Association Leaders Symposium and it was a great success. Attendance was made up of International, European, and UK associations, with CEOs / Executive DIrectors taking part together with their Board Chairs / Presidents from Professional bodies, individual member and business member organisations. 

We are looking forward to this next Association Leaders Symposium on 5-6 December 2022.

Let me know if you would like to hear more about the Symposium by sending me an email  to cecilia.spoor@associationexecutives.org - we can then set up a video or regular call or I can answer any initial questions you have over email. 

You can read the testimonials from the previous event on our website. 

The Symposium is a unique opportunity for both Association Leaders - executive and volunteer - to define and discuss their working relationship as well as analyse current issues facing contemporary membership organisations.

The two-half-days event addresses the critical areas of: 

  • Building a culture of shared understanding and commitment
  • Evaluating working styles and leadership strengths through assessment
  • Establishing a common understanding of roles, responsibilities, and relationships
  • Evaluating critical components of successful leadership, governance, and strategy
  • Identifying essential questions to ask about your association's digital transformation model
  • Outlining governance relationships between association board and staff members
  • Identifying current and anticipated trends facing leaders of contemporary associations
  • Employing the value of research and strategy in knowledge-based decision making
  • Applying successful practices and models to strategic planning and thinking
