“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 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
