Association Development Services

Associations play a vital role in the developed world and the nurturing of stronger association communities is essential to economic transformation in developing economies.  Associations deliver a wide range of social and economic benefits:
  • Professional development / continuing education / knowledge exchange
  • Capacity building
  • Industry research and development
  • Accreditation and self-regulation
  • Policy development
  • Creative collaboration / innovation
  • Business, trade and research networks
Developing a stronger association market also strengthens a destination’s local host communities and helps them to be more successful at attracting regional and international conventions.  This in turn drives a strong global trade and intellectual engagement opportunity for the community and nation. GainingEdge works with clients to devise association development programs – building new communities and strengthening existing ones.  These programs involve creating national and regional societies of association executives for the purpose of promoting professionalism in the association management field.  These societies are able to offer continuing education in relation to association management issues and also technical assistance for professionals who are interested in forming new associations. In addition to current association development projects in Malaysia and South Africa, GainingEdge demonstrates its association management credentials through its management of BestCities Global Alliance – the world first global alliance of convention bureau.  These cities are Berlin, Cape Town, Chicago, Copenhagen, Dubai, Edinburgh, Houston, Melbourne, Singapore and Vancouver.
