A strong industry association is vital to continuing to lift our industry voice, building our capabilities and achieving outcomes, and creating new connections for our future. Part of ensuring we have an industry association that is future-focused is making sure we continually invest, adapt, and create.
With this in mind, the AFIA Board recently implemented a revamped governance structure underpinned by a decision-making architecture that assists AFIA in navigating the current financial services landscape and positions the association to leverage the strength of our diverse membership, build organisational resilience and financial sustainability, and create additional and ongoing value for our members and stakeholders.
Our governance structure aims to define, clarify and guide our decision-making processes and ensures our members are actively engaged in setting our strategic direction and work program. A thematic approach to our governance ensures we embed cross-industry and sector-specific leadership to support our policy, communications, industry standards and member services work.
Helping to address the fast moving and unknown variables that we continue to experience with COVID-19, our governance structure allows AFIA and our members prepare to reshape and reposition the industry moving forward. As we slowly emerge from restrictions and enter new ways of business and working, our new structure is already proving a key change for the Association. We have been able to move nimbly and quickly gather intel and points of view to respond to Government, regulator and consumer advocate queries. This has helped to maintain an open and critical dialogue with key stakeholders and allowed us to influence support programs and packages to benefit our members and the industry.
Hear some of our Board members share their thoughts and views on the value these changes are bringing and continue to bring to our industry association.
