ASSOCIATIONWORLD has announced the opening of the registration for the first edition of WIAF, the Washington International Association Forum, on October 19-20 in Washington, D.C. Under the topic “A World in Motion – Taking the discussion and learnings about International Developments to the next level“, this first edition of WIAF aims to establish an international leading platform and knowledge sharing event in one of the world’s flagship host destinations for professional associations and non-profit organisations.
Kai Troll, President of ASSOCIATIONWORLD, the association behind WIAF, GIAF and BIAF, says: “Associations in Europe and North America are often governed very differently. We are very much looking forward to hosting the first edition of WIAF for association leaders, who are interested in gaining a more global perspective of international association management, not only from a governance, but also from a cultural point of view and to help create more positive impact around the world. WIAF will always be a boutique type of knowledge sharing forum. The aim is not to become the biggest association meeting in North America, but the most holistic and best knowledge sharing platform and peer-to-peer exchange that drives the successful internationalisation of our community in North America.”
