Association Management is one of the key pillars of CropLife AME. Our main goal in association management is: To ensure that the CropLife national associations are well managed and able to defend the interests of industry.
In the CLAME strategic plan 2021-2023, we have identified the following key priorities for association management:
Promote and uphold CropLife as the voice of the Plant Science Industry.
Capacity Building of the National Associations.
Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning.
It is without any doubt that the best way to achieve strong national associations is to build their capacities in management and governance so that they are well run and can deliver on their mandate. This therefore informed the need to develop an e-learning module both for the board and staff of national associations across the AME region. The challenges faced by many associations are not unique to individual associations, a lot of similarities have been identified across the countries. The e-learning document seeks to guide the board and staff yet at the same time provide the opportunity to learn and create conversations around management, sustainability, internal processes and the need to create value to our members.
