    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. This is a rare opportunity to network with other CEOs and senior management professionals from charities, associations and other non-profit organisations. Ample opportunity will be given for you to discuss issues and network with others.

    The Topic

    We are told we are at the precipice of the next technology frontier with the emergence of new industries in AI, Blockchain, Robotics and Big Data. Hear from Association leaders who are at the face of these emerging industries and those who have transformed their associations in response to their member’s landscape.

    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.

    Do your Systems Support your Associations Direction

    Are your organisation’s systems haphazard or organised, planned and sustainable.  Are they aligned with and support your organisational objectives.

    Consider the following:

    • Is it easy to do business with you?
    • Are your customers/members frustrated by your systems?
    • Are your systems an obstacle?
    • Are your staff frustrated by your systems?
    • Do you know what systems you have?
    • Do your systems contain unrecognised or unaddressed risks to your operation?
    • Do you have “work-arounds” to achieve what you need to do?
    • Do you trust the information that comes out of your systems?
    • Is the information you and your staff require readily available?

    Ian will discuss what an “Information Systems Strategic Plan” is and why every organisation should have one.  You should come away from this session with an understanding of the high level components of an “Information Systems Strategic Plan” and an appreciation of their value.

    The Deep Dive - Stay for a few minutes afterwards…  this newly introduced deepdive session, which should be held after the lunch, in which the Ian will expand on their topic further and answer any burning questions that you have

    He will examine some of the tools used to develop and document an “Information Systems Strategic Plan” along with the opportunity for attendees to ask questions and explore areas of specific interest.

    Attending this AuSAE event is also a great opportunity to connect with leaders from associations, charities and other not-for-profits to discuss current workplace challenges and other issues of importance.
