    Let me share with you AuSAE is proudly the only not-for-profit Association for Association Executives that is owned and run by members.

    We support a broad community of association professionals who are committed to making a difference in the sectors and industries in which they work.

    As we approach the end of the year and I reflect on the great work the team here at AuSAE are delivering, I would like to take this opportunity to invite you to join AuSAE as a financial member to allow us to continue to develop and support you on your journey in association management no matter what stage of your career. Let me share some of the initiatives we have undertaken this year:

    • Across Australia and New Zealand we increased our community of Association professionals, welcoming 171 new members into the organisation
    • Following an extensive consultation process the members passed a constitution with a new governance structure to better reflect the contemporary environment in which we operate
    • Create the opportunity for members to meet, network and connect at some 35 face to face events across Australia throughout the year
    • Provided thought leadership on key industry issues through digital communications and social media
    • Offered personal, hands on support to over 40 organisations through our Senior Leadership team
    • Demonstrated our commitment to the development of future leaders for the sector through the Mentoring and Leadership program.

    What I can’t put on this list is the intangible benefits belonging to a community of likeminded individuals brings. For some it’s personal development, for others its meeting a colleague who can help with a challenge just at the right time.

    Our mission is to provide a home for association professionals. A place to belong, feel connected and advance your career. I feel very passionate about the collective impact that associations have on society and the greater the size of our community the greater impact we will have.

    I look forward to welcoming you as a member in 2019. JOIN HERE 

    Warm regards Toni

    The Topic

    Welcome to the Talent Economy—a 21st century economy characterised by unprecedented innovation, connectivity, disruption, and opportunity. Unfortunately, the positive attributes of this economy have been largely overshadowed by employee turnover, skills gaps, and the struggle to simply keep up with the rapid pace of change.

    Until now, we’ve just assumed there is no other way. But Sarah Sladek proves there is another way.

    Drawing from documented workforce and talent-development research, her presentation cites numerous examples of organizations that have been capable of engaging employees in this era of disruption—what they did, why it worked, and how it’s made a difference to the organisations’ outlook and bottom line.

    Sladek proves that it’s possible to create an organisation designed to engage talent, and she will provide the audience with the guidance to do it. 

    • Gain a better understanding of what is causing employee turnover and how to resolve it
    • Learn the traits shared among the most engaging and successful organisations in existence today
    • Understand the core differences between struggling and successful companies
    • Learn how to inspire and motivate your workforce and thrive in an era of disruption

    Welcome to our October edition of Insider.

    Whilst we may be a mere 8 weeks away until Christmas,  the AuSAE team are not slowing down in terms of continuing to deliver relevant content and events to our valued community.

    We are proud to again be delivering our Women in Association Leadership (#WIAL) series in November and this year will run the event in Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney.  This years theme of women leading in traditional male led industries will be debated and discussed by a panel of amazing women.  With no other event like this for our association leaders in the marketplace, we are delighted to bring like-minded women and male champion of change together to build support networks and develop professional and personal skills.

    We are also very excited to be bringing out Sarah Sladek from the USA.  Sarah wrote the book “The end of membership as we know it” and as CEO and Founder of XYZ University will be delivering a one day workshop on the Future of Membership.  An amazing opportunity not to be missed.  More details here.

    Internally,  we have recently spent some time as a board and management team reviewing our strategic plan and ensuring we are delivering relevant content, events, education and information to help you on your path as an Association leader. I will be sharing the outcomes of that with you in the coming months and will welcome feedback and comments as to how we can better serve you.

    Finally,  we would like to wish Director Holly Morchat Stanko our warmest congratulations on the arrival of Zachary Arthur Stanko earlier this month.  We wish you all the very best as a new family.

    Wishing you a great November.

    Warm regards

    Toni
