UIA's World of Associations

Newsletter of the Union of International Associations

e-Newsletter, seven issues in 2024

Free of charge

UIA’s World of Associations is our e-newsletter, which reaches over 15,000 international associations with a focus on our publications, services and activities supporting associations, and on promoting contact with the providers they need. The e-newsletter features the popular series ‘Why this city?’, with companion articles to highlight aspects of association and conference life. Toolboxes will announce new developments, while our list of upcoming congresses across the regions of the world will give a glimpse of the extraordinary range of events and their venues, taken from our constantly updated and expanded Congress Calendar. We shall feature networks, partners, associations new and old – the UIA’s Yearbook and Global Civil Society Database are brimming with information to share. Our e-newsletter continues to be an interactive platform for international associations who are seeking for opinion-sharing with their peers on topical issues, best practices and experiences. And if you have news, share it with us.
