IT&CM Events’ Association Day to Launch in Singapore
IT&CM Events’ educational program on Association Management for Association Professionals and Executives will launch in Singapore on December 2. Organized in a first-ever collaboration with Suntec Singapore, the upcoming session is IT&CM Events’ fourth installment of its Association Day program this year.
Organizers have emphasized that content will remain the priority in order to deliver a stellar educational program that is relevant and pertinent to the Association attendees in Singapore.
Drawing on the recent Association Days @ IT&CMA in Bangkok, Ooi Peng Ee, General Manager of TTG Events, said: “Our past three Association Day programs have told us that the impetus to learn from and network with association experts and their own peers has drawn Association executives across industries to our events. In particular, the most recent Association Days @ IT&CMA that featured an expanded two-day program garnered top scores from our attendees in terms of content, delivery, interaction and relevance to job.”
Paitara Chaochalard, Manager of Thai Association for the Study of the Liver who attended Association Days @ IT&CMA, praised that program’s “strong case studies,” noting that she would use what she learned when managing her association.
Speaker Simon Pryor, Principal Professional Learning and Certification Advisor of Australasian Society of Association Executives (AuSAE), who was both a moderator and panelist at Association Days @ IT&CMA in Bangkok added, “Global competition and the opening up of Asian economies through initiatives such as the ASEAN Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership means that more than ever before, Asian countries need their professional, trade and industry associations to help drive social cohesion and economic growth through vital advocacy, leadership, standards and information services. So, as these associations develop in response to new demands, it becomes essential for knowledge and education support such as the Association Day programs offered by IT&CM Events, to be available to board members and paid staff.”
Venues and dates of IT&CM Events’ Association Days series in 2015 include IT&CM China in Shanghai (April 15), IT&CM India in Delhi (August 19), and IT&CMA in Bangkok, Thailand (September 30 and October 1).
