We are officially in the second half of the year (only 22 weekends until Christmas!) and there is certainly a flurry of activity in the sector at present and here at AuSAE is no exception.
We have recently released a number of events including networking lunches, executive briefings, webinars and our New Zealand Conference (LINC) is right around the corner. LINC is being held in Auckland, 10th – 11th September, if you haven’t already I encourage you to take a look at this year’s program and join us for two days of networking, learning and collaborating to walk away with the tools you need to advance the goals of your organisation. For a full list of our events visit here.
We are also working hard at developing our “non-event” offering with a revamped resources area on the website and are trialing an exclusive Member Only “Events” discussion forum.
Next month I am excited to be joining our US partner organisation (ASAE) as I travel to Chicago to participate in the 2018 ASAE Annual Meeting. As well as participating in the many educational sessions and visiting the ENORMOUS exhibition of association solution providers, I will also be progressing some exciting projects we have been working on with our US counterparts – more information on that soon!
To help you stay up to date with AuSAE news, events and activities, I encourage you to follow us on social media. You can find us on LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook (and me personally on Instagram @ausaeceo). Also, did you know we have a closed Facebook group, exclusive to Association professionals where you can seek advice from our executive community.
We are proud to be the only not-for-profit association that serves association executives. This means that AuSAE, just like you, is genuinely owned by members, run by members and exists for members. Each and every activity we undertake is with the sole motivation of supporting you to achieve positive outcomes for your organisation.
I look forward to telling you all about my learning from the USA on my return and hope to see many of you at the upcoming networking events.
Have a great month
