    The Networking

    We invite you to take a couple of hours out of your day to connectwith others in the industry to discuss high level topics of real importance, develop new relationships and gain critical information. Attending this AuSAE event is also a great opportunity to connect with leaders from associations, charities and other not-for-profits. You will get the opportunity to discuss current workplace challenges and other issues of importance.

    The Topic - Adding value to Incorporated Associations - a case study

    One of the big issues that is raised by incorporated associations around the world is how to add value to members without breaking the bank. Crucially, what 'added value' is truly useful to members and how can members take this 'added value' and improve their own activities?

    Richard will use a case study of a New Zealand Association who have been able to offer a broad range of training materials as an online solution. The approach, the engagement and how this activity has extended out into member's own businesses.

    Attending this AuSAE event is also a great opportunity to connect with leaders from associations, charities and other not-for-profits to discuss current workplace challenges and other issues of importance.

    The Speaker - Richard Warren, Chief Executive Officer, Intuto

    Richard is the CEO and founder of NZ business Intuto, a cloud-based platform for creating and managing online training.

    While the business has been operating since 2000, rapid changes in technology means that Intuto is driven to evolve its business activities to ensure it meets the needs of users and remains a successful operation. This requires constant development guided by customer feedback and global trends.

    Richard had a long sales and marketing background working in both the FMCG and advertising sectors before starting Intuto. He is passionate about the customer experience, putting simplicity and effectiveness at the top of any design list. A firm believer in the importance of collaboration, Richard ensures that Intuto works closely with every aspect of the customer supply chain.

    The Topic

    The ease of online communication nowadays means that more of our social and organisational interactions are moving online. But are we missing out on important face-to-face interactions by moving the majority of our communication with members to on line.

    Using today’s dedicated member management software brings with it all the features of on line communication that enable associations to blog, post, auto email, hold webinars, survey, register and renew memberships. In fact most make the need for off line communication redundant. But how do our members feel about that?

    We are literally emailing our members to death and spam filters now send enewsletters and event invites straight to the junk folder.

    Membership engagement has become a one way traffic activity full of generic messages which is in complete opposition to what members say they want – tailored, relevant, spaced communication pieces that add value.

    What can associations do to leverage the technology and still deliver meaningful communication to members.

    Come and hear Kerrie Akkermans National Membership Strategist share the story of how the Australian Water Association went full steam ahead with digital communication to reduce costs and increase member engagement and then how they needed to recalibrate due to member pushback. She will provide tips on how AWA regained member’s support and balanced their on and off line communication to ensure member’s felt a part of the community still.

    The Speaker - Kerrie Akkermans , Chief Executive Officer, Girl Guides SA

    Kerrie is a senior executive and business owner with experience in membership management, association management, real estate, marketing, personal branding, strategic management, leadership, mediation, human resource management, cultural change and conflict management, business development, best practice and quality/WHS systems. Kerrie has developed her consultancy business since 1994 and owned and operated a retail and property businesses.

    Having consulted to a range of industries on the acquisition and retention of members she is well versed in the nuances of membership management and profitable growth.

    As a professional speaker and trainer Kerrie’s skills are highly sought after and she has been engaged to share her stories and insights. She also conducts mediation for businesses to assist with disputes with stakeholders on human and financial matters.

    She has an extensive track record in working with owners using her Bachelor in Communication and innovative methods to come up with fresh ideas and solutions.

    As Kerrie says “it’s people who need to be managed, the technical skills are the easy part”. Her background and expertise in communication and mediation means she can handle the most challenging of situations.

    Her positive energy will motivate you to take action and put the ideas to work with your members.

      Topic: Working through cultural differences 

      Australian associations operate in a richly multicultural environment, both domestically and internationally. Employees and other stakeholders come from a diverse range of experiences and backgrounds, adding to the cultural tapestry. Cultural differences can arise from nationality, religion, language, ethnicity or social identities. This paper will address the issue of how association executives can best manage and resolve disputes which arise internally (between employees) or externally (with other associations or companies), where different cultures and values might be a factor.

      This presentation will provide an introduction to understanding possible resistances and obstacles to resolving a cross-cultural dispute; how to draw on mediation techniques as a manager and leader in resolving conflict; and how to participate effectively in mediation of cross-cultural disputes.

      Presenter: Kate Waterford, Board Director, Amnesty International Australia

      Kate Waterford is a nationally accredited mediator specialising in commercial disputes, particularly those involving cross-cultural or international issues, at Maliganis Edwards Johnson in Canberra. Kate is also a solicitor and litigator.

      As a current board director for Amnesty International Australia, one of Australia’s most well-known not-for-profit companies, Kate is one of the leaders of a movement of over half a million supporters in Australia and more than seven million supporters globally.

      Kate worked for several years in eastern India, as a university lecturer in business law and financial management. She also worked as a senior legal and policy adviser to educational institutions and not-for-profit companies during this period, developing expertise in reaching commercial solutions in a cross-cultural environment.

      In her work as a mediator, Kate draws on her experiences of living in various Asian and European countries, and on her post-graduate studies in cross-cultural communication and dispute resolution. She speaks fluent Spanish and several other languages.

        Mission Control with Liana Downey

        This exclusive one day AuSAE Workshop is a fantastic way to learn and understand the tools you need to identify your organisation's strategy and increase your impact. 

        Why do some nonprofit and association leaders succeed in changing the world, while others struggle to point to their impact? What links the eradication of smallpox, the housing of 100,000 chronically homeless individuals, or the remarkable reduction of the incidence of malaria?

        Successful leaders share a laser-like focus on their goals. They deliberately identify and target their efforts in their sweet spot — the intersection between what they’re good at, what the world needs, and what works. Yet most leaders lack focus. The number of nonprofit and associations globally is growing at an incredible pace, but as the number of organisations grows, so does the competition for members and funding. As a result, many organisations are chasing resources by tweaking and adding to their core activities. The result is colloquially known as “mission creep”— organisations trying to be everything to everyone. Yet research suggests that the more goals individuals or organisations pursue, the less likely they are to achieve them, leaving leaders overwhelmed, underfunded, and unfulfilled. There is a better way. Learn the secrets of leaders who change the world, and learn how you too can find your focus and increase your impact.

        In this  special AuSAE Workshop you will learn the 7 steps to taking control and: 

        • How and why missions get out of control
        • How to test whether you are inadvertently sabotaging your impact potential and what to do about it
        • To identify:
        • Your unique assets—the skills and capabilities that set your organization apart
        • Gaps in your sector that are not being met—and those you can meet
        • A shortlist of powerful, spine-tingling goals to galvanize your team
        • How to craft a narrative that helps you attract and engage a loyal member base

        Topic: Same or Different: What the Not for Profit sector can learn from the For Profit sector 

        While the two sectors have vastly different objectives and play very different roles in society, there is a lot the Not for Profit and For Profit sectors can learn from one another. 

        This presentation will look at a comparison of the For Profit to Not for Profit, Corporate to Association sector, the differences of culture and strategy and the differences and similarities in meeting business challenges.

        Presenter: Wendy La Macchia, Business Manager, Queensland Justices Association

        Wendy La Macchia is currently Business Manager of the Queensland Justices Association which has over 6,000 members in Queensland and is turning 100 next year.

        La Macchia is a manager by trade but with specialisation in the big picture. Having held positions in management across different industries and in both the For Profit and Not for Profit sector, La Macchia has seen many big pictures in her working life. This includes in hospitality, engineering, distribution and associations. Success in drawing the big picture means taking a helicopter view of your organisation.
