Learning from and with association experts

From May 2 to 4 2017, the Associations World Congress (AWC) made a stop in Vienna. The annual meeting offers talks and workshops exclusively dedicated to the exchange between and education of association experts from all over the world. When we speak of associations in this context, we don’t necessarily mean your local choral society. The often huge associations present at AWC unite several hundreds to up to hundreds of thousands of professional members to help them network and obtain qualifications at congresses relevant to their areas of expertise.
