Professionalising Your Association: Establishing Best Practices in Running a Professional Membership
Organisation for Translators and Interpreters, Saturday, 28 April 2012, London, United Kingdom
Professional associations are invited to submit proposals for presentations on aspects of their corporate governance or management that they wish to share with the meeting during the morning session. Presentations should be no longer than 30 minutes, plus 15 minutes for questions. They should explain how your association has dealt with a specific aspect of its management, such as member qualification, managing decentralised board meetings, delegation of powers, regionalisation and financial management. During the afternoon session, all delegates will have the opportunity to discuss questions arising in the morning, with the aim of producing a blueprint for newly professionalising associations.
Proposals of no more than 500 words should be submitted by email attachment in Microsoft Word format to ITI Vice-Chairman of Council Iwan Davies: email@example.com. Please clearly mark your message "Proposal for ITI/FIT Europe Round Table". The deadline for submission of proposals is 31 January 2012. Proposals must be submitted by professional associations, rather than by individuals, but it would be useful if your proposal could indicate who will be giving the presentation.
