Strategic Board Series

"Good venue, good presenters and excellent facilitation."

"Although I attend many meetings related to the diaspora of association governance and value deliverance, the number of innovative, contemporary insights and examples presented made attendance most worthwhile"

"Real highlight of the event was meeting lots of different people from other or similar fields interested in the same concepts and learning.

"Topics and panel were good and therefore time went too quickly. Good to have networking at the end to chat further." 

"Nice group of people in a comfortable setting. TAS staff were very welcoming and engaging"

"The event was very enlightening, giving me some tips to support my organisation and the members."

"Have attended 3/3 now and I enjoy it every time. Always lots of notes to be taken!"

"The TAS SBS is well run with insight and value provided by the panel members and a good networking opportunity. If you are a Board or Committee member of an Association I would recommend that you attend."

"The panel discussions were skillfully moderated to tease out positive, timely pearls of wisdom from the experienced panel members, both young and old."

The Strategic Board Series is an invaluable information sharing and collaboration event held by The Association Specialists. It is comprised of a panel of thought leaders from a variety of backgrounds and industry areas in the Association and Not-For-Profit sectors.


This complimentary event is organised by the TAS team with the goal of increasing awareness and providing a platform for knowledge sharing and networking among peers.

 

Benefits for Attendees:

  • Strategic information and insights on topics vital to board members direct from sector leaders
  • The chance to participate in the discussion with interactive sessions where attendees are encouraged to ask questions
  • Enjoy complimentary drinks and canapes while experiencing unparalleled networking opportunities to connect with other association board members and keep the conversation going beyond the forum

Upcoming Series

Our next SBS event will be held in Brisbane at the Novotel Brisbane South Bank on September 17, 2019 from 5:00pm - 8:00pm.

 

PANEL ONE: GOVERNANCE & NOT-FOR-PROFITS 

Governance should be about more than just “ticking boxes”.

How do you build (and keep) a strong, qualified board of directors? How can good governance help us to create long term value for members and other stakeholders? Panelists will consider these questions and also discuss:

  • Board structure, conduct, responsibilities and performance evaluation
  • Code of Conducts
  • Good governance practices
  • Due diligence and duty of care
  • How to run efficient and effective AGMs
  • Why communication is key to good governance

PANEL TWO: MEMBERSHIP ENGAGEMENT - TIPS & TRICKS

A fulfilled and active membership base is core to a successful association. We can engage our members in numerous ways from offering excellent member services, to holding ‘must attend’ events, communicating with members and utilising technology effectively.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Building a winning member engagement strategy
  • Using technology effectively to keep members engaged e.g. social media
  • Member services/offerings to keep members engaged
  • The importance of an effective CRM database
  • Keeping members engaged by delivering outstanding meetings, CPD and networking opportunities
  • Being a thought leader for your industry to recruit and retain members

Registration is complimentary and provides the chance to hear from a panel of experts, whilst enjoying drinks and canapes as you network with peers from a range of associations from various industry sectors.
