    Topic: Membership Strategy - A Moving Beast 

    Being part of a membership-based Association is fraught with challenges, all members want something different, funds can be tight, time frames are even tighter. Sponsors/advertisers want their pound of flesh, reactivity becomes a way of life and we are expected to do more with less. Drastic times call for drastic measures, and so Associations may need to embark on some hard decisions in 2017 to boost their membership services offering.  

    This presentation is designed to inform and educate participants about the journey associations embark on , given the right mental spark!

    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.

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.
