“In the U.S. we are grappling with how to train up the next generation of association leadership within North America as quickly as our predecessors in the industry are retiring. Providing this Next-Gen Workshop at IMEX Frankfurt 2024 platform will help us understand the needs of our clients and provide long-term solutions. I am excited to connect with others to get perspective through a global lens.”
