EAPA-SA Wins Best Large Association Conference in Africa, TWO Years in a Row!

On 30 October 2018, EAPA-SA was awarded the Best Large Association Conference as well as being commended for our E-Newsletter being a success story at the Africa Association Ceremony 2018. The ceremony was part of the Association of Association Executives (AAE), African Conference held in Pretoria, Gauteng. The conference brings together association executives from around the globe to share best practice.

In 2019 on Monday the 19th of August, EAPA-SA was once again awarded the Best Large Association Conference for the second year running.

The Association Awards, organised by the Association of Associations Executives, raises the profile of associations, their executives, and gives them the recognition for their effort and success.

All nominations are judged by a prestigious judging panel consisting of influential association leaders and specialists, all focused on the continuous improvement of associations: UK, International, and European.

Through the Association Awards and the Association Success Story Programme, AAE facilitates the dissemination of in-depth case studies with practical information and data that enables associations to achieve the best results from their projects and developments.

The awards are about recognising best practice and exceptional achievement, and sharing the knowledge and experience in the association community.
