The Association Network is an independent and informal group of IAL members and association professionals whose aim is to propagate and disseminate good practice for the
benefit of fellow professionals within the association sector.
Formed in 2013, the group (now renamed the Association Network) has produced over 50 guidance notes on a wide range of subjects which together form a compendium of expert
guidance as an essential reference tool for fellow practitioners. Each guidance note has been drafted by an experienced CEO and then peer reviewed prior to publication. Every guidance note is reviewed at regular intervals and updated when necessary.
