Associations Changing Attitudes and Culture: Master Plumbers Case Study
Peter Daly (CEO, Master Plumbers Australia)
Associations leaders need to be skilled in change management, from changing the culture of their association, through to the behaviour and attitudes of their members. The Master Plumbers Association operates in a traditionally male-dominated industry. Over the last two years, the Master Plumbers has introduced a brand new program to encourage the participation of women in the industry, as well as programs to support disadvantaged workers. Peter will detail how the association of the future must be at the forefront of change in the new world, illustrated by how his organisation has made a difference.
