    One of the reasons you joined AuSAE was to make connections and learn more about the sector so you could succeed as a professional and advance your organisation. Join other professionals who share your same challenges and experiences in an informal and relaxed setting where the content is driven by you in these free member programs.

    Please register in advance - These roundtables are free to attend for AuSAE members and for first-time non-member guests. If non-members of AuSAE are attending their second or more roundtable discussion, there is a fee of $35.

    How does it work?  - AuSAE will email attendees a few days before each session to collect possible topic ideas.

    Then, attendees join us from 1:30 pm - 3:00pm and enjoy conversation and learning in a member-facilitated discussion. Look for advice for some of your biggest challenges, offer new tips or tricks you have learned or share recent successes your peers could learn from. The success of this program depends on your participation so don’t sit on the sidelines – come ready to engage with the group.

    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.

    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.
