Earlier this month, we attended the 14th International and European Associations Congress hosted in picturesque Lausanne, Switzerland. The conference was held over two days and promised to provide insights and methods to tackle some of the most challenging issues currently facing societies and associations. The conference certainly delivered as we heard some excellent case studies and advice from membership organizations, consultants and industry partners. Here are 18 highlights and key takeaways that we collated from the conference Twitter hashtag (#ACIE15). Thank you and credit to our fellow #ACIE15 Twitterati for sharing their insights from the talks.
