Affiliated Association Executives Share Best Practices in Association Management

August 10, 2017

The 2017 Association Executives Council (AEC) Best Practices Conference was an in-depth examination of best practices in association management. Attendees participated in interactive discussions covering a variety of topics over the course of the three-day conference including executive leadership, collective bargaining issues, industry funds management and developing future association leaders.

United Association General President Mark McManus and Assistant General President Mike Pleasant, joined the conference Tuesday morning to give an overview of recent UA news and developments and participate in an interactive discussion with the local affiliates. MCAA President Greg Fuller and UA/MCAA Joint Strategic Planning Co-Chair Mark Rogers participated on the panel offering their insights into different areas of the country and the positive relationships they’re seeing between contractors and their labor partners. The 2017 UA/MCAA Labor Relations Conference (November 14 – 15, Las Vegas) became a prime focus of the group’s discussion. General President McManus stressed to attendees the importance of maximum participation from both groups in an effort further solidify the relationship between the UA and MCAA.

Another conference highlight was the announcement of the updates to MCAA’s AEC Best Practices Initiative in support of its affiliated associations. This initiative was introduced at the 2016 conference and, since its induction, MCAA has doubled the offerings available to its local affiliates. This series of programs is designed to provide education and resources to MCAA’s local affiliated associations enabling them to provide exceptional service to their contractor members. The offerings of the AEC Best Practices Initiative are completely underwritten by MCAA.

The conference concluded with current AEC Chair, Dave Davia (MCA of Colorado) stepping down and the introduction of Frank Wall (PMCA of Oregon) as the new AEC Chair, Tony Saporito (MCA of New York) as the Vice Chair and Ed Kommers (MCA of Western Washington) as the new Program Chair. In his new role, Wall addressed the group thanking them for their dedicated conference participation. He stressed the importance of the education this conference brings to local association executives and encouraged attendance at both the UA/MCAA Labor Relations Conference as well as the AEC Best Practices Conference in 2018.
