The Associations Summit 9 (AS9), presented by the Philippine Council of Associations and Association Executives (PCAAE), is set to be held on November 24-25, 2021 with the support of the Tourism Promotions Board (TPB).
Themed Associations and the Pandemic: Lessons Learned and The Way Forward ‚Äď A Conversation among Members and Stakeholders, the virtual Summit is expected to draw more than 200 association leaders and professionals here and abroad.
The Summit will feature plenaries and learning sessions, where speakers will share best practices in association governance, leadership and management. Participating PCAAE members will also earn points that could lead to earning the title, Certified Professional Association Executive (CPAE).
The Summit will also be the fitting venue of the Ang Susi Awards 2021 night. Ang Susi stands for Associations nurture National Growth through Social Unity and Sustainability Innovations‚ÄĚ and also symbolises the key role that the association community and its professionals contribute to national economic development.
The awards will be given to membership organisations in six categories for their outstanding achievements in helping the environment, empowering people, serving communities, enhancing trade and industry, developing technology solutions, and being agents of change.
Two individual awards, the Association Board Member of the Year and the Association Executive of the Year, will be bestowed on outstanding career professionals who have sustainably governed and managed an association and produced remarkable results, especially during this pandemic.
‚ÄúThrough AS9, we hope to help associations be ‚Äúfuture-ready‚ÄĚ themselves by knowing what‚Äôs out there in terms of peer best practices, as well as for them to think strategically in terms of increasing their sources of revenue, enhancing their profile, and fulfilling their missions.
“We also invite associations to seize the social and professional development opportunities available from the virtual networking with fellow members of the association community,‚ÄĚ said PCAAE founder and CEO, Octavio ‚ÄėBobby‚Äô Peralta.
