Workshop - Sharing Resources for Greater Operational Capacity
Many associations struggle to employ a team that completely fulfills the required skill sets for operational success. Wouldn’t it be helpful to have a shared talent pool to draw upon when specific skills are needed? Also consider collaboration between networks whose members may have overlapping and complementary knowledge to share. New opportunities are sure to arise when networks learn to partner with each other, share resources, and become a platform for mutual success.
Bring your ideas, questions, and experiences to this lively, hands-on session as we co-create a list of takeaways for sharing resources between associations.
- Determine whether sharing human resources between associations would be useful for your organisation
- Consider cross-network partnerships for sharing resources to provide enhanced value for your members
- Assess multiple formats under which such collaborations could be structured while respecting professional boundaries
