ESAE’s Strong Ambitions for the Future

European Society of Association Executives‘s General Assembly took place last Friday. On this occasion, Giuseppe Marletta, Managing Director Europe at the Association of Corporate Counsel, took over as new President of ESAE. Giuseppe is an association leader with 15+ years of experience in management of professional societies and trade associations, with a pan-European and international scope. 

Following his election, Giuseppe presented ESAE 2019-2021 Strategic Plan which includes an organisational restructuring, bold goals for stronger membership and activities, as well as the development of additional initiatives, dedicated to Association Leaders only. He commented: «At ESAE, we have strong ambitions for upcoming three years. Not only we are on a mission to increase the number of our members – and in Brussels, with the strong base of headquarters of European and international associations, there is definitely something to do! – but we will also expand our education offering. It’s our plan to organize one workshop a month for association executives to learn and network with their peers. I believe no-one else offers this at the moment.»

ESAE also welcomed three new members, Alexander Mohr (FEFA) Rafael Plata (EACH) and Caroline Teugels (FIP-IFP), who join Béatrice Richez-Baum (ecoDA), Wouter Lox (AIJN), Chloe Menhinick(GainingEdge), Maria Rosa Gibellini (EiF), Stylianos Filopoulos (Wine in Moderation), and Attilio Caligiani (WiA) to form an energetic and charismatic team to help ESAE fulfill its ambitions. 

ESAE invites its members to register to an interactive workshop that will explore what the new balance of power the European Elections bring, a session that will help association leaders identify the key players and best plan their advocacy and monitoring strategies. ‘Who will be the next EU leaders?’ is the second in a row in the series “Roadmap for the EU super-Year“, led and presented by Interel’s Richard Steel, and will take place on 25 June at the Interel House on Rue Luxembourg 22-24, 1000 Brussels.
