Manila-based Philippine Council for the Advancement of Association Executives (PCAAE) and the Washington, D.C.-based American Society of Association Executives (ASAE) represented by Mr. Octavio B. Peralta and Ms. Greta Kotler, Chairman and Chief Global Development Officer, respectively, signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) for the promotion and distributorship of ASAE publications and online courses in Hong Kong on April 3, 2014 during the sidelines of the ASAE Advisory Board Meeting for the “Great Ideas in Association Management Asia-Pacific Conference 2015” (please see separate news article) held on April 2 & 3, 2014 at the Kowloon Shangri-La Hotel.
The agreement reflects a common understanding between the collaborating parties in the promotion and distributorship of ASAE publications and two-week online education courses in the Philippines. In particular, ASAE will work with PCAAE as a promoter of ASAE’s publications and online courses for the duration of one year, beginning May 1, 2014, with both parties reviewing the relationship two months before the end of the partnership at which point the partnership may be renewed for another year. PCAAE members will have access to ASAE publications and online association management skills courses (15 day format) at a member’s rate through a special discount code on ASAE’s website.
More information on these educational resources will be made available to all PCAAE members in due time.
