The Association of Association Executives has launched a new event in its associations congress series. The Africa Associations Congress will take place on 29-31 October 2018 at the CSIR International Convention Centre (CSIR ICC) in Pretoria, South Africa.

The congress is designed for pan-African, regional and national associations in Africa and also for international associations with members in Africa. The programme, with a theme of ‘Transformation’ will be designed to help associations develop and work better for their members.

Key speakers for the event will include Angela Cherrington, CEO of the Institute of Directors in Southern Africa and its professional bodies group; and Jeffers Miruka, president of the African Society of Association Executives - which is also a supporter of the congress.

The Association of Association Executives’ executive director Damian Hutt said: “I'm very pleased to be bringing the Associations Congress series to Africa, it is set to be a critical educational event for the association community to transform their organizations and their value to members.

“It was the first conference I ever worked on in 1985 in Kenya, that gave me the events bug and all these years later, after visiting Africa many times since, I am proud to bring this Associations Congress that I have developed to the continent.”
