Establishing Components for Growth

Having a component model for associations who wish to venture regionally and globally presents obvious benefits, although this comes with a set of cultural, communication, process, political and legal challenges. Forming partnerships with established national associations or establishing a new national association can be a powerful distribution tool for associations to deliver their mission on a regional/global scale both efficiently and effectively. This session discusses the key considerations to forging a win-win relationship based on the CFA Institute case study. CFA Institute is an ever-growing association organisation with 147 components in 73 countries. 

 Presenter:   William Boivin, Manager, Society Relations, Asia-Pacific, CFA Institute
