The Association Specialists open first international office

The expansion follows a rapid period of growth for the company and an increased demand for association management in the Asia Pacific region.

The Asia Pacific operation will be overseen by local Singaporean and newly appointed CEO Chua Buck Cheng.

“There is a current push to upgrade skills amongst the working population in Asia Pacific, especially with mid-career PMETs (professionals, managers, executives and technicians) facing higher risks of job displacements due to the emergence of disruptive technologies,” said Cheng.

“Associations will therefore play an important role in providing members access to necessary training and accreditation and be a representative industry voice. In Singapore, the government recognises this and has urged associations to be professionally managed in order to provide this support and service to members.”

Managing director Francis Child welcomed Cheng’s appointment.

“I am confident that with our extensive industry knowledge and Buck’s specialised Asia Pacific expertise, combined with our joint enthusiasm for the not-for-profit sector, we are in a strong position to provide the same level of service as we have done in Australasia for more than 20 years,” said Child.
