Creating Partnerships to Benefit Members

UnknownThe Council of Professional Teaching Associations of Victoria (CPTAV) has been maintaining relationships with key Stake Holders and building partnerships with others to benefit members. This links directly to our strategic vision;

  •  To encourage collaboration between professional teaching associations in Victoria
  •  To promote strategic partnerships within Victoria, Australia and Overseas

The committee of management and Executive Officer identified two organisations; the Australasian Society of Association Executives and Associations Forum, who are providing high quality resources and professional networks for the not for profit sector. 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.



Webinars for the Uninitiated

webinarEDITED4Many organisations are turning to webinars in order to communicate with customers, members and colleagues. Webinars are commonly known as web – seminars as they allow you to conduct presentations, lectures and other interactive workshops over the Internet. Webinars also allow you to reach geographically dispersed audiences without having to leave your desk and in turn generate benefits such as more time, more money and more convenience. 



Accessing Regional Communities

regional3As 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.
