Setting the Course for the Future - Over the Horizon Thinking and the Role of Associations
As we set our sights to 2024 and beyond we need to maintain our relevancy. It is imperative that Association and NFP Leaders envision possibilities beyond what is immediately apparent and genuinely consider what lies ahead. How will the trends of say climate change and technology affect our members over the long term? What about social and cultural shifts, or even urbanisation and changing demographics? How will these impact the people and organisations we serve in the years ahead?
Our keynote speaker will set the pace for our conference. Not only will he be sharing his perspectives on what the future may hold for us, but will offer relevant ideas for consideration at the decision-making meetings we have ahead of us.
