Association Influencers 2022

What is Association Influencers 2022?

AuSAE’s Association Influencers program highlights and recognises the outstanding contributions of individuals in the association community across Australia and New Zealand.

When faced with the rapidly changing and escalating public health emergency of COVID-19, the Association community stood front and centre to support, protect and advocate for their members.

Associations work tirelessly to collect, curate and disseminate information, advocate to the government in developing impactful policy advice and provide support and assistance for the professions, industries and communities they represent.

AuSAE is your home of associations. As a community, outstanding association professionals must have the opportunity to be recognised, inclusive of AuSAE members and non-members alike – the people behind the associations, connecting the tribes.

Meet our Association Influencers of 2020 here...
