Get to Know ASSOCIATIONWORLD

ASSOCIATIONWORLD (AW) and its President and CEO Kai Troll, Boardroom’s partner, recently talked to the Union of International Associations (UIA) about this Brussels-based foundation, established in June 2018 by an international board of directors, with a goal to address the absence of affordable educational programs which cover the real tangible needs both for big and smaller associations. The aim is to take a holistic approach towards the development of associations.

To achieve this purpose, ASSOCIATIONWORLD organises full-day workshops for small groups of 15 to 25 people. Each workshop focuses on maximizing the experience and learning outcomes for each participant, which are intended to be clearly applicable when delegates go back to their organisations. Besides content, the workshops focus on creating lasting experiences. ASSOCIATION WORLD also recognising the need for these workshops to be accessible, has opted to host them primarily, though not exclusively, in destinations which are home to the largest number of international and European associations and non-profits. As such, in 2019, there will be workshops in the cities of Brussels, Geneva, Paris and Berlin.
