Richard Taylor (IAM Executive Director)
The week 6th - 10th November is a celebration of what Associations have achieved, how they contribute to society today and what we can look forward to in terms of their role in the future.
Many bodies have long histories: the Institute of Association Management, as an example, dates back to 1933 when it was incorporated as the Institute of Secretaries. After two rebrands, and a complete change in membership focus, the Institute now serves a diverse and modern membership. The change has not happened without a considerable amount of uncertainty and disruption.
