Welcome to our September Newsletter!

This month our network celebrates (I cant believe I am saying this) its 8th Anniversary!

Together we've achieved a great deal and have lots of exciting initiatives planned over the coming months! 

Harnessing the Web 2016 is now only 4 weeks away and in this issue we highlight the emerging theme of online non-subscription fee revenue generation and how our conference will address this.

In this issue we also have some great blog articles for you on a range of topics including Digital Transformation, Cyber Securtiy threat, CRM and Google AdWords.

I hope you enjoy reading our newsletter and if you would like to submit or suggest any future content please do get in touch!

As a topic area more and more associations are looking at ways to generate non-subscription related income. In response we take this topic 'head on' at this year's conference.

We are pleased to announce that the ICAEW will present on their recent progress in this area. We will be joined by Andrew Stott, Head of Commerical Partnership Delivery, who will provide much needed insight. His session will be complimented via updates on the progress of organisations including the AOP, STEP and CMI via an inspiring keynote presentation by Official Supporter, THINK.
