How do you optimize a solid and strategic partnership? How can you align the governance roles and responsibilities of your CEO and volunteer leader? ASAE: The Center for Association Leadership has designed the CEO Symposiumto provide leadership discovery and direction in an ever-changing association workspace. Held in Amsterdam 23-24 May, the Symposium encourages association executives to evaluate annual priorities and offers insight on how best to work with their incoming leader.
For more than 30 years, both first-time and past attendees discuss the value of attending an ASAE CEO Symposium, which provides current information and direction on the emerging issues that the association community faces. CEOs return with their newly elected officers and establish mutual trust while learning ways to strategize on governance issues and volunteer culture. Isabel Bardinet, Chief Executive Officer of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) said, ‘This one programme had a profound influence on how we now develop policies, design committees, and the day-to-day interactions between permanent and volunteer leadership. We passed along many of the lessons to our directors, which improved the functioning of their own teams. ‘
Making connections and establishing a common ground among top members of the leadership team developsa sense of ownership and stewardship within the association and ultimately createsmeasurable results on the overall mission and success of your organization.With unparalleled expertise and a proven track-record facilitating the CEO Symposium both domestically and internationally, faculty from Tecker International, LLC will deliver valuable insights for immediate application to the realities of your own association.

Newly added program:
Creating and Sustaining a Culture of Foresight: Empowering Associations for the Future
Senior association professionals and volunteer leaders are often called upon to consider how the ever-changing business, technological, social, and political landscapes will transform the organizations they represent. Leaders must be equipped with the tools, resources, and skills to guide and direct dynamic conversations around environmental scanning and planning for change. This evidence-based program will draw from ASAE Foundation’s new research initiative, ASAE ForesightWorks, to deliver key information about current business and association drivers of change. The two-part session will address the value of foresight, creating a culture of foresight, and how associations may exemplify the “duty of foresight” into their board and committee orientations. Program resources will be used to demonstrate how a continual stream of intelligence about anticipated trends can be applied and integrated such that it stimulates meaningful discussions and action.
