The PCAAE has granted honorary memberships to Mmes. Greta Kotler, Susan Sarfati and Liz Jackson for their unwavering support of and commitment to the well-being and sustainability of the new Association.
Ms. Kotler is the Chief Global Development Officer of the American Society of Association Executives (ASAE): The Center for Association Leadership, one of the founding pillars of PCAAE. Through her initiative, Ms. Kotler was key in making available to PCAAE members ASAE’s Daily enewsletter as well as their robust knowledge resources such as training programs and publications under a distributorship memorandum of agreement. She also opened the doors for PCAAE to be part of the ASAE Advisory Board of the Great Ideas Conference Asia-Pacific, ASAE’s first ever conference of its kind in the region.
Ms. Susan Sarfati, CEO of High Performance Strategies and Ms. Liz Jackson, President of Jackson Consulting, Inc. voluntarily provided PCAAE advice and exposure that it needed before and after PCAAE was finally launched on November 20, 2013. Both also conducted a seminar for PCAAE members during the 1st Association Executives Summit held at the Philippine International Convention Center (PICC) jointly organized by PICC, the Tourism Promotions Board (TPB) and the Association of Development Financing institutions in Asia & the Pacific (ADFIAP). They continue to support PCAAE by linking it with the IMEX Worldwide Exhibition for the MICE industry (meetings, incentives, conferences and events), particularly on its “Association Day” event where PCAAE had the opportunity of meeting and networking with other associations worldwide.
