    Melbourne Member Event 

    Local volunteer members are launching a new and regular member discussion/networking forum in Melbourne. 

    The aim is to run this local event each quarter, after hours, followed by a networking meal and drinks (at your own cost). 

    Each forum will focus on a specific ‘association executive’ related topic and will encourage in-depth, informal and confidential round-table discussions (Chatham House Rules to apply: i.e. participants are free to use the information discussed, but must maintain confidentiality). Numbers will be limited, so members are encouraged to register early.

    Members are welcome to attend the forum and the dinner or just the forum or dinner. Please indicate your preferred option when you register for the event.

    The Networking

    We invite you to take a couple of hours out of your day to connect with others in the industry to discuss high level topics of real importance, develop new relationships and gain critical information. Attending this AuSAE event is also a great opportunity to connect with leaders from associations, charities and other not-for-profits. You will get the opportunity to discuss current workplace challenges and other issues of importance.

    The Topic

    How to Grow and Diversify Your Membership Base

    The infrastructure sector is booming in NZ, and consequently the number one issue of concern for the industry is sourcing enough skilled workers. Infrastructure NZ, the peak body for the industry has recently established two networks, namely the Women in Infrastructure Network (WIN) and the Emerging Talent (ET) Network to address the shortage of talent across the sector and to address the 'pale, male and stale' stigma associated with an aging industry

    The Speaker

    Sarah Lang, Project Director - Infrastructure New Zealand

    Sarah Lang, Project Director at infrastructure NZ is responsible for the organisation’s strategic partnerships, sponsorship and membership acquisition and retention. Sarah manages the Women in Infrastructure Network, the Emerging Talent Network and also leads advocacy work across the Social Infrastructure Portfolio (housing, education, health).
