ICCA Global Conversations: Virtual Best-Practice Exchange for Associations

15 April | 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm


Within a short time span of a few weeks our world as we know it has changed forever. We had to learn to adapt our daily routines and fight to simply survive. In a world where we heavily depend on being able to meet face-to-face to further our fields, exchange knowledge, develop new policies and reach larger communities, we face the devastating effects of COVID-19. The long-lasting effects will also be felt for years to come.

On 15 April at 16.00 CET we will host a Virtual Best-Practice Exchange open to associations only. Association executives will share how they are dealing with the challenges caused by COVID-19, from daily operations, member services, recruitment, meetings cancellations and moving them to a virtual dimension. We will not have answers at the ready, but we will be providing a platform for associations to share what has worked for them and what has not.
