    What is Association Influencers 2020?
    The Association Influencers 2020 program is about highlighting and recognising outstanding individuals in the association community across Australia and New Zealand.  AuSAE is your home of associations, and we are honoured to host this space for outstanding association professionals across all levels to have the opportunity to be recognised – the people behind the associations, connecting the tribes.

    Who can be nominated (Eligibility criteria):
    AuSAE are seeking nominations for individuals at all levels of responsibility who have demonstrated influence, exemplary leadership, unrivalled guidance, strength in resilience and service to the sector.  Someone deserving of being acknowledged for their contributions, the unsung heroes, those who inspire and lead our associations into the future.  
    This person may be an Association CEO, pivotal manager, rising star and / or someone who:

    • has been part of a high performing team,
    • lead of an innovative project or COVID response initiative,
    • shown dedication to building partnerships with stakeholders,
    • an exemplar role model to their peers

    or all of the above and more…......

    You are encouraged to nominate any peer that you identify as meeting the above criteria.  
    All candidates must reside in Australia or New Zealand although the person making the nomination of the candidate may be located anywhere globally. Nominees must be a current employee of a not-for-profit Association to be eligible for inclusion.

    Why should I nominate someone?
    Our tribe is a passionate community, working tirelessly beyond the 9-5 in the service of members.  As we near the close of the year, let’s take a breath, stop, reflect, and recognise those in our community making a real and lasting difference, influencing the future of our profession and inspiring those surrounding them.  These are the people who are exemplary in our community and it takes just one person to nominate to demonstrate to them and the broader community that they are valued, their work is instrumental and makes a demonstrable impact.

    If you know a person who should be nominated as an Association Influencer in 2020 – Register your details here and express your interest to nominate an Association Influencer.  Access to the nomination form will be forwarded following your registration.
