UIA Associations Round Tables 2016
by Nancy Carfrae, Coordinator, UIA Round Tables


The UIA Round Tables are the core of UIA’s education project. The Round Table participants are people involved in running associations – of all sorts. The speakers are also all involved in running associations and share their own experience in meeting (or not!) challenges in membership, communication, funding, governance, and more. There are workshops and discussion groups for participants to exchange concerns and knowledge.

“For me, the discussion groups are always the most interesting. The speakers give us food for thought, with new ideas and provocative questions, but in fact everyone in the room is an expert. It is in the small groups that we get to share that expertise. The passion and motivation and knowledge always give me a boost.”
Nancy Carfrae

We consider a Round Table a success if the participants go home with new ideas, with renewed motivation, and with names of people with whom they want to stay in touch.
