An account of the Associations World Congress & Expo by Pia Shekhter, attending on behalf of IAML in place of Secretary General, Anders Cato.
A few weeks ago, 7-9 April to be precise, I attended the Associations World Congress & Expo as a stand-in for our Secretary General, Anders Cato. It was the 28th congress in a series arranged by the Association of Associations Executives, which this year conveniently took place in my hometown Gothenburg. A full congress pass amounted to £695, but IAML was graciously invited at no charge.
Are you confused by your GAs, Rs, and Sections? These are some of the acronyms, terms, and phrases you will find on congress programs and when people are talking about IAML.

IAML is looking for someone to fill the position of Secretary General.
The Web Team (Gabriele Gamba, Stefanie Hundsberger, Astrid Evasdotter Smith, Jennifer Ward) would like to wish all IAML-members a very happy new year. It is time for us to bring you a little update on our activities. We have been very busy over the last few months working on the general structure of the new website. For this goal we are working together with Swedish web designers in order create a website that is user-friendly as well as functional and pleasant to look at. The web designers delivered first sketches of the skeleton of the new website just before Christmas.
