This past December, I had the privilege of facilitating a panel at the Dubai Association Conference (DAC), an event that promotes dialogue and offers educational sessions for associations interested in exploring opportunities in the Middle East Region. Our session, Building Your Career Path, covered the ever-evolving world of professional development and how planning one’s career and achieving progressive learning through certification can be a game changer in career advancement and growth.

The chief executive of an Association or Professional Society is hired by and reports to the board of directors. Any other staff reports to the chief executive, not the board. This is an important feature of any Association’s organization chart, the understanding that the association’s staff is given direction by the CEO or Executive Director. Similarly, the President or Chair of the board deals directly with board related issues.
