Face-to-face workshops are targeted, small-scale meetings over 1½ days, providing a deep dive on specific topics for association staff dealing with those areas. They also allow member associations to connect with each other. Workshops are member-led and offer an unrivalled opportunity for small group learning, peer exchange and expert education on focused topics.
