“Kathy Nguyen recently facilitated an excellent and highly informative training session around Board Governance for the APPA Board. Kathy had obviously taken time to research and build her understanding around the unique nature of our association and used this work, together with her considerable association knowledge and professional experience, to ensure the session was clearly focussed and the benefit maximised for attendees."Graeme Feeney, Chief Executive Officer, Australian Primary Principals Association
“The great thing about Associations Forum is the collective knowledge and collaboration. Nowhere else can you access a huge pool of association knowledge, credible partners and most importantly trends and efficiencies."Antony Nicholas, Chief Executive Officer, Osteopathy Australia
“The new constitution provides a strong foundation from which UITPANZ can continue to serve the members and champion our mission of sustainable urban mobility. The Board is appreciative of the work of the Governance Committee with guidance from Kathy Nguyen, Associations Forum.”Michelle Batsas, Executive Director , UITP Australia New Zealand
"It is less than a year since we became members of the Associations Forum and already I have seen the benefits our membership has brought to the organisation. The resources available have been invaluable in saving time and energy that can be more productively focussed on other priorities rather than on reinventing the wheel. The Board training and Board evaluation provided through Associations Forum highlighted our strengths and helped us identify a few areas we need to address to improve our governance. The networking and learning opportunities have been invaluable to me as CEO. I only wish we had made the choice to become members earlier."
Cheryl Holmes, Chief Executive Officer, Spiritual Health Organisation
"I would like to thank Associations Forum, for all their guidance and support in transitioning our organisation from a Federated Association to a National Company Limited by Guarantee. Their knowledge and expertise in the areas of governance, boards and constitutions, and willingness to answer many questions and be available to our member organisations, enabled us to progress our vision and achieve our goal."
Louise Wightman, President, Maternal, Child and Family Health Nurses Australia
"Thank you for your help in guiding us through the strategic planning process and keeping us all focused. Comments were positive and the directors and staff gained a lot, including clarity, inspiration and a renewed appreciation for the association and what we’re all trying to achieve."Jill Brookfield, Chief Executive Officer, Association of Accredited Certifiers
"I would like to thank Associations Forum for providing a comprehensive review of our strategic plan, operational capability and practices and providing valuable, insightful recommendations. The valuable input during the meeting has provided us with valid, strategic, recommended implementations and operational changes ensuring benchmarks and activities are more streamlined, and provide overall direction and benefit to the Association. Rest assured I will be recommending the services of Association’s Forum to colleagues and other Association Boards."Stephen O’Dwyer, President, Traffic Management Association of Australia
“We are grateful for the assistance of Associations Forum. With the new plan and mission statement, we now have a clear path and direction for IMSANZ. Joining Associations Forum was a great move for us for all of the guidance and expertise they provide.”Leigh-anne Shannon, Executive Officer, Internal Medicine Society of Australia and New Zealand Ltd
