The Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (the Centre) recently hosted five board members from AMC (Association Management Companies) Institute for an immersive educational visit. The programme was designed to provide an all-encompassing experience of the Centre, Kuala Lumpur and Malaysia’s attractive and affordable business events proposition and to provide a direct educational exchange that could benefit local association development.
Part of the programme included an Association Education & Knowledge Exchange session to help build the capacity and capability of local associations. Over 200 Malaysian stakeholders, including many local associations, attended the event where the five AMC Institute board members shared their invaluable knowledge and experience on six association-related topics. These included disruptions facing associations, engaging membership and volunteers to thrive and survive, and challenges facing associations in today’s environment, to name a few.
