    AuSAE is delighted to be partnering with Survey Matters to deliver the Associations Matter: 2013 State of the Sector Study. This study will answer the most important issues facing membership based organisations to provide benchmark data for the first time on the state of the Australasian professional association sector. Similar to the ASAE “Decision to Join” research, but designed for Australasian professional associations, this landmark study will survey members of associations across Australasia to provide insight into why individuals join associations, the services their value and why they renew (or don't). AuSAE is proud to be involved with this exciting project and invites you to register your interest today!

    The NZ Charities Commission has released its final annual report (covering the 2011-2012 year). In 2011, the Government announced plans to disestablish the Charities Commission and transfer its functions to the Department of Internal Affairs. Legislation was enacted on 6 June 2012 that transferred the Commission’s functions to the Department on 1 July 2012 and disestablished the Commission on that date. As a result, this 2011-12 Annual Report is the final one produced for the Commission and has been prepared by the Department.
