Presenter:John Peacock, Chief Executive Officer, Associations Forum

Across Asia and around the world, associations play a vital role in advancing their cause and delivering services to members. Whilst experience and technology make running an association easier, it is harder for volunteers to find time and there are more competitors offering alternatives.

Does your association:

  • Struggle to retain existing and recruit new members?
  • Have overworked volunteers?
  • Seek greater income and a stronger financial base?
  • Question whether your executive committee structure and rules are best practice?
  • Wonder about the best technology to communicate with members and make administration easy?
  • Have less delegates to events than you desire or deserve?

If so, these free practical workshops are for you and your association, chamber, institute or society!

Singapore has a wide range of associations that are encouraged to operate by the government. These workshops are designed to allow Singaporean associations to best perform their role in advancing their cause and helping members.

The workshops will be presented by John Peacock, Chief Executive Officer, Associations Forum. John is an association governance and management specialist who has been working with associations in Singapore and Asia since 2009. John presents in an informative and engaging style that allows for interaction between delegates to support his expert knowledge.

Associations Forum is an Australian-based organisation that specialises in information, education and advice to membership-based associations.

The Association Governance, Rules and Planning Workshop will cover:

  • Governance and the respective role of Boards, staff and members
  • Constitutions: what to (and what not to) include in your Rules
  • Planning: the crucial need to have direction and accountability
  • Finances: getting the balance right between saving & investing

There is no charge to attend these workshops.
