In the face of a dynamic economy, developing technologies, and new business models, a continued emphasis on learning new concepts throughout one’s career is an absolute necessity.

Association Forum has partnered with the University of Chicago Booth School of Business, a world-renowned education and research institution, to develop an executive education series for the advancement of leadership, strategy, marketing, and negotiation skills for association, non-profit and supplier partner senior management and executive teams.*

Participants in The Business of Associations executive education series:

  • Learn from esteemed faculty at one of the nation’s top business schools in a fast-paced, action-oriented learning environment.
  • Participate in intellectual discussions surrounding real-world situations.
  • Draw from the experiences of other high-caliber participants.
  • Gain new perspectives and best practices for addressing critical business issues.
  • Significantly increase their ability to make an immediate positive impact on their current professional practice.

Each course is held over one-and-a-half days at the University of Chicago Gleacher Center in downtown Chicago making it convenient to access and time out of the office manageable.

*The Business of Associations has been designed specifically for senior-level professionals from all association practice areas, as well as supplier partner industries. In an effort to maintain the integrity of the program and its value to attendees, the Association Forum requests that only senior-level association professionals and supplier partners, defined as director level or above, register for courses in the program and reserves the right to annul the registration of any non-qualified attendee with a full refund of fees paid. 

Mid-level association professionals may submit a Registration Request including at least two professional referrals from senior-level staff in the association where they are currently employed. Association Forum staff will review all registration requests individually and will notify submitters of their acceptance status at least two weeks prior to scheduled course dates.
