how associations are proving relevance and value to their members

Associations that fail to remain relevant and deliver value to their members are an endangered species. At the same time, it's not easy to provide sufficient initiatives to appeal to the needs of every member.

Access1st was amongst the exhibitors at July's Associations Forum National Conference in Sydney. We interviewed representatives from three very different associations about what they do to enhance the member experience and deliver real value to members. Check out their initiatives below


We'd love to hear your thoughts on the challenges you face and what you most enjoy about working in the association sector. if you'd be keen to share your views in a Q&A for our blog, please get in touch.

Thanks to our interviewees:-

  • Nicola Cook, President Elect, Australian Hand Therapy Association
  • James Oxenham, CEO, Hire & Rental Industry Association
  • Tara Diamond, Executive Director Industry Services, AMMA
