Associations Forum welcomes the launch of the Association Leaders Symposium
Associations Forum was pleased to host the inaugural Association Leaders Symposium at the International Convention Centre Sydney on Monday 5 September 2022. The one-day, interactive symposium tailored content and discussions to the needs of association leaders and decision-makers.
Against the backdrop of Sydney’s Darling Harbour, Association CEOs, Chairs and senior leaders met to discuss the intricacies of effective Board and CEO relations, successful strategic planning and how to boost association performance.
The symposium featured multiple educational, interactive and networking sessions, centred around the perennial issues encountered by association leaders. Yasser El-Ansary, CEO of the Financial Services Institute of Australia shared knowledge on charting effective leadership from business association experience, Peter McIntyre, CEO of the Royal Australasian College of Physicians spoke on the importance of good governance and Michael Tidball, Secretary, NSW Department of Communities & Justice and former CEO, Law Society of NSW and Law Council of Australia, shared reflections of associations as a senior public servant.
The event closed with a networking function giving delegates the opportunity to network and build connections with their association peers. Associations Forum relished the opportunity to provide a collegiate environment for association professionals to learn about leadership and take away skills to boost the performance of their association.
