The Networking

This event is now closed for online registrations, if you are interested in attending please email

We invite you to take a couple of hours out of your day to connect with others in the industry to discuss high level topics of real importance, develop new relationships and gain critical information. This is a rare opportunity to network with other CEOs and senior management professionals from charities, associations and other non-profit organisations. Ample opportunity will be given for you to discuss issues and network with others.

The Topic

We are told we are at the precipice of the next technology frontier with the emergence of new industries in AI, Blockchain, Robotics and Big Data. Hear from Association leaders who are at the face of these emerging industries and those who have transformed their associations in response to their member’s landscape.
