This is a rare opportunity to network with other CEOs and senior management professionals from charities, associations and other non-profit organisations.

    The Topic

    The Challenge of Modern Governance

    A growing number of directors have attended educational courses as a first step understanding organisational good governance. The real challenge is take the theory of modern good governance and put into practice, to make governance work in an organisation.

    In this presentation, GovernRight founder, Simon Neaverson, will examine the key features of a Good Governance Framework necessary to strike the correct balance between oversight and management and build a culture of engagement throughout the organisation, in order to embed good governance.

    Of key importance is how to adapt an organisation’s good governance framework to meet the changing expectations of directors. In particular, how can the directors achieve the right level of comfort that what is meant to be happening is in fact happening and how can a board add value and still meet these changing obligations.

    The Speaker

    The Topic

    The Challenge of Modern Governance

    Governance – a much used but often misunderstood term. In his talk Kim will examine governance practices in the context of the modern NFP enterprise. What does governance mean for the organisation as a whole and what part do the various stakeholders play in establishing and maintaining good governance? 

    Kim will use real life examples to show what causes governance failures and the fallout for both enterprises and individuals. He will share his experiences as the incoming CEO of a number of high profile NFP’s who have found themselves in trouble and describe the processes he has used to effect positive change.

    Workshop (Melbourne) - The Power of Prediction

    Further Information

    This AuSAE event provides an exclusive environment for motivated association executives to gain insights and advice from other industry professionals. This event enables members to raise and discuss critical issues affecting industry and network with other professionals from the not-for-profit sector.

    The Topic

    Engagement tracking/scoring is currently a ‘hot’ topic for many association executives. But just scoring a member’s historical involvement may be ‘too little, too late’ for many organisations. What if it was possible to accurately predict (using data you already have available) - a member’s future engagement? For progressive organisations, ‘big data’ analytics and predictive modelling techniques and technology are emerging as the ‘next big thing’. At this interactive workshop, Paul will share his insights on how advanced technology - originally only accessible to Fortune 500 size companies – is today enabling membership based organisations like yours to develop predictive models of member behaviour that can be applied across the entire organisation – to predict not just member engagement and satisfaction, but to also provide more accurate forecasts for individual member renewals, event registrations, course enrolments, product purchases, committee involvement, and other key association specific activities.

    Case studies from leading associations from around the world will be used as well as hands-on exercises to help you understand the full potential and the power of prediction.
