A new event called the Africa Associations Congress 2018 has been announced by the Association of Association Executives (AAE), as part of its association congress series.

The Africa Associations Congress will take place from 29 - 31 October 2018 at the CSIR International Convention Centre (CSIR ICC) in Pretoria, South Africa.

The congress has been tailor-made for pan-African, regional and national associations in Africa, but also for international associations with members in Africa. The programme's theme of transformation is designed to help associations develop and work better for their members.

AAE executive director Damian Hutt said: "I'm very pleased to be bringing the Associations Congress series to Africa, it is set to be a critical educational event for the association community to transform their organisations and their value to members.

"It was the first conference I ever worked on in 1985 in Kenya, that gave me the events bug and all these years later, after visiting Africa many times since, I am proud to bring this associations congress that I have developed to the continent."

Content streams are planned for association leaders and strategists and additional streams for operation executives. Topics will include transformation through the following: organisational purpose, cultural transformation, best practice governance, membership engagement and value; transformational technology; conference transformation through content, marketing, as well as sales and value. 

The event's key speakers for the event will include Angela Cherrington, CEO of the Institute of Directors in Southern Africa and its Professional Bodies Group and Jeffers Miruka, president of the African Society of Association Executives, which is also supporting the congress.
