The Australasian Society of Association Executives (AuSAE) provide a wide range of professional learning opportunities focused at the not for profit sector and connect organisations, associations and Executive Officers throughout Australia and New Zealand. Associations Forum mission statement is 'bringing associations together to boost performance.' Associations Forum was established in 2004 and is a member-based network of associations, charities, clubs, societies and other not-for-profit organisations.
As Professional Teaching Associations, creating access to regional communities can often provide some challenges. We are faced with a wide range of choices both in what type of technologies we use and what model will be successful for our members? How do we know what we invest in will work for our community? What is a measure for success when it comes to accessing regional communities?
Last Tuesday night, 24th June, Accessing Regional Communities was held at the Statewide Resources Centre (SRC), Carlton.
