  • Rwanda Association Workshop | AfSAE

    Out of gallery Eighty-Nine (89) association professionals and nonprofit managers in Rwanda, Kenya and Nigeria successfully completed the certificate course training in association management offered by the African Society of Association Executives (AfSAE). Gathered in Rwanda’s clean capital Kigali, the highly anticipated association training and development workshop was sponsored by the Rwanda Convention Bureau (RCB) and facilitated by AfSAE. The training took place at Ubumwe Grande Hotel. Premised on the veritable platform of AfSAE’s vision of education, advocacy, networking, and as a voice of the association profession in Africa, the 3 days training was the most intense that the society has conducted since it was founded in 2016. Mr. Gregg Talley, CAE, FASAE, President and CEO of Talley Management Group, Inc. and Jeffers Miruka, AfSAE President and CEO of the African Association Management Company (AFAMCO) facilitated the training. The workshop was intertwined with several group discussions and short presentations from participants, all aimed at maximizing learning and promoting networking. Delegates were disallowed from sharing the same tables with similar faces during the training to foster free interactions. The prestigious certificate program in association management course, that leads to a Certified Association Executive (CAE) credential is a product of the American Society of Association Executives (ASAE) also known as the Center for Association Leadership. This was made possible through a grant of program license and faculty status agreement between ASAE and AfSAE. The courses covered included; essential practices in association management, effectively managing volunteer committees and task forces, membership development, communication and public relation, and developing your leadership potential. The first course of the program, essential practices in association management was first offered during Meetings Africa 2018 in Johannesburg, South Africa, in June 2018 in Kigali, Rwanda and in February 2019 in Accra Ghana. It’s the intention of AfSAE to spread this training in Africa as it promotes the association management profession in the continent and give voices to associations, equipped the AfSAE president. Frank Murangwa, Director of Destination Marketing at the Rwanda Convention Bureau, while closing the training, said that associations have made his organisation set new targets for revenues earned from hosting business events from $74 million in 2018 to $88 million in 2019. With events such as Transform Africa Summit (TAS) and International Conference on AIDS and STIs in Africa (ICASA 2019) lined up, Rwanda is well positioned to be a force to reckon with as a business events destination in Africa. 1/1

  • AfSAE History | AfSAE

    History of AfSAE For several years an informal group of African Association Executives had gathered during Meetings Africa, under the auspices of the South African National Convention Bureau (SANCB), and talked about the need and desire to connect themselves and build an infrastructure to enable them to stay connected throughout the year. At Meetings Africa 2015 the topic was brought forward during Association Day to create the African Society of Association Executives (AfSAE). The group present enthusiastically agreed and formed an “Establishment Committee” made up of the following individuals: The AfSAE Establishment Committee Jeffers Miruka, African Association of Agricultural Economists, Kenya Olubunmi Owoso, Commonwealth Association of Polytechnics in Africa, Kenya Ibrahim Bangura, African Bodybuilding & Physique Sports Federation, Sierra Leone Diran Onifade, African Federation of Science Journalists, Nigeria Peninnah Kabenge Aligawesa, Federation of Africa University Sports, Uganda Chidorum Nwakanma, International Associations of Business Communicators, Nigeria George Sunguh, Port Management Association for Eastern and Southern Africa, Kenya Musa Mabandla, South African Neuroscience Society, Kwa-Zulu Natal Brian Ssennoga, The Free Software and Open Source Foundation for Africa, Ghana Kelvin Esiasa, Zambian Society for Public Administration, Zambia Victoria Lugey, Union of the Catholic African Press, Ghana Samuel Nii Ardey Codjoe, Union for African Population Studies, Ghana Natalie Kensley, The Conference Company, Kwa-Zulu Natal Gregg Talley, Talley Management Group, Inc., USA Gary Grimmer, Gaining Edge, Australia The role of the Establishment Committee was to explore the possibility and options around the incorporation, formation, and management of an AfSAE. The Establishment Committee empowered an Executive Group to work through these issues and report back. The Executive Group Name Association Role 1.
