In a world where innovation and leadership are paramount, recognising and nurturing emerging leaders becomes a cornerstone of progress. The 2022 Future Leaders program, a joint initiative by the Australasian Society of Association Executives (AuSAE) and the Adelaide Convention Centre, aims not only to acknowledge exceptional individuals but also to provide them with the tools and opportunities needed to shape the future of various sectors. We are thrilled to introduce and celebrate the recipients of the 2022 Future Leaders Scholarship.

Congratulations to the 2022 Future Leaders

Amid a pool of outstanding nominees, a select few have risen to the top, earning the well-deserved title of the 2022 Future Leaders. These remarkable individuals have demonstrated not only their present capabilities but also a promising potential to shape the future of their sectors. Through their innovative thinking, dedication, and commitment to growth, they have showcased qualities that make them stand out as true leaders of tomorrow.
