The American Society of Association Executives will be hosting its first Europe CEO Symposium this May 23-24 at the NH Amsterdam Centre in the Netherlands. The conference, which has been marketed to members for the past couple of months but has just been announced to the general public, gives CEOs and their newly elected officers an opportunity to strategize on the governance and volunteer culture of their organizations. 
The program will be lead by business-management consultant Glenn H. Tecker, chairman and co-CEO of Tecker International. He has more than 35 years of experience helping to prepare associations and corporations for change.
"For more than 30 years, the CEO Symposium has been very successful within the U.S. and Canada. We are expanding the program into Europe so our international members can work together to anticipate challenges they are facing, enhance their leadership skills and plan strategically for the next year," said John H. Graham, IV, FASAE, CAE, president and CEO of ASAE.
One two-part session will annouce results from the ASAE Foundation's new research initiative, ASAE ForesightWorks, which has compiled data about current drivers of change for businesses and associations. The breakout will address the value of foresight, creating a culture of foresight and how associations can introduce the "duty of foresight" into their board and committee orientations. Program resources will be used to demonstrate how a continual stream of intelligence about anticipated trends can be applied and integrated to stimulate meaningful discussions and action.  
More information and registration can be found on the ASAE website.
