AfSAE will host its inaugural Africa Association Summit from 21 – 22 October 2019 at the Kenyatta International Convention Centre (KICC) in Nairobi, Kenya.

This article was first featured in Issue 3 of Event Africa.

The KICC is the Presenting Partner for the Summit, with the event featuring keynote speakers, workshops, panels, and submissions from associations across Africa sharing their successes.

“This is a major step forward for AfSAE, African association executives and leaders,” says Jeffers Miruka, AfSAE President and Executive Director for the African Association of Agricultural Economists.

The Africa Association Summit will have a programme based on research that the organisation has conducted amongst its member associations on the continent. It will cover pertinent issues that executives are wrestling with and want more information on. These include governance, financial sustainability, marketing and communications, new revenue streams, and many others. Both African attendees and global sources of association education will explore resources and solutions.

In addition to association-led conference content, suppliers in the association and not-for-profit field are invited to participate in the exhibition Solution Centre and to partake in the education programme to better equip themselves on the issues association executives are dealing with across Africa. The event will also showcase the local cultures indigenous to Kenya, and there will be social events and ‘Brain Dates’ with leaders in association and business-events management.
