1. Diversity Leadership Programs

Successful associations comprise professionals with different viewpoints and backgrounds. A dynamic leadership team is what your organization needs.

To achieve this, you may want the next generation of leaders to attend ASAE’s Center for Association Leadership diversity program.

The two-year program includes networking and professional development. It also includes leadership training for people in minority groups.

People who complete the program receive Certified Association Executive credentials!

2. Association Law Symposiums

Anyone running an association needs to know about legal issues they might encounter. The training touches on hiring a hybrid workforce post-pandemic.

It includes updates to changes in existing laws and new regulations. Attendees get tips for high-level discussions between leaders during a crisis.

Moreover, there’s even talk about employment law and the data security of members.

The one-day training [pdf] offered at the Association Law Symposium will give young leaders the experience they need to stay on top of legal matters!

3. Workshops on Handling Conflicts

Your members may all be part of a single association, but in reality, they’re all competitors working in the same industry.

This means that disputes may arise at any time.

A webinar by the International Organization Development Association will teach your next-generation leaders how to resolve conflicts.

Attendees learn about identifying intolerant behaviors, addressing discrimination issues, and promoting peace.

4. Marketing Leadership Programs

Gaining and maintaining new members for the association needs plenty of marketing from your end. This is why marketing leadership programs are relevant for next-generation leaders!

This course by the Kellogg School of Management allows trainees to master data and innovate. Data visualization and the use of artificial intelligence are included as well.

The program explores the use of automation to make marketing easy. Moreover, it’ll help young leaders execute effective marketing strategies for the association.

5. ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management Training

Whatever industry you’re in, anyone who’ll lead an organization needs a background in quality management!

It’ll help young leaders uphold standards and provide the tools they need to keep information organized.

This online ISO course from the American Society for Quality is as simple as it gets. With it, your successors can gain knowledge on process approach and recognize controls for daily tasks.

They also get a certificate worth 0.5 continuing education units once they finish the training!


There are many programs and initiatives to help nurture the next generation of your association’s leaders.

They can take training on diversity, law, marketing, peacekeeping, and quality management. These will help them succeed as the next leaders of your association!
