Associations are organizations or group of individuals affiliated with one another who share a common purpose, interest, or mission and exist for the mutual enrichment and advancement of their membership. There are three critical roles, among others, that associations play in society: (1) they enrich lives through volunteerism, creating standards of safety and quality, specializing expertise, and building citizenship with communities around the globe (2) they sustain competitiveness by committing resources to life-long learning, professional development, mentoring and research and, (3) they impact the economy through industrial development, product and service innovation, and facilitating domestic and international business.* All these areas and more will be presented and discussed by association practitioners and experts from here and abroad at this year’s Associations Summit 5. So come join us at AS5!

Jeffers MirukaThe African Society of Association Executives
To be effective and efficient, an association, like its corporate counterpart, needs a chief executive officer leading a staff complement to carry out the mission and vision of the organization. It has been proven that Board-led, staff-run associations are better equipped to sustain the organization than an all-volunteer-run association. This session will uncover these issues.
