Following ABPCO’s decision to adopt Excellence, Learning and Belonging as its core values, the association has responded to several other member suggestions that will add significant value to its offering over the coming year.
“Each of our new initiatives fits comfortably amongst our refined values making them great for the association, whilst ensuring they directly benefit our members,” comments Therese Dolan, joint chair of ABPCO. “The changes reflect suggestions made by our members as part of our annual engagement survey. They have been refined by our executive board and are in the process of being rolled out.”
Excellence – leading industry best practice with passion, professionalism and integrity
Learning – encouraging knowledge sharing
Belonging – supporting and connecting our member community through collaboration
Rose Padmore, joint chair of ABPCO, concludes: “Ultimately we exist to serve the needs of our members. Each year we ask what they want and how we can ensure we are relevant and providing value for the investment they make both in terms of money and time. I am looking forward to seeing these new initiatives develop over the coming year and expect them to inspire positive responses.”
