<div style="text-align: justify;">The simple answer is – YES! At a recent webinar organized by Terrance Barkan, CAE from Globalstrat, delegates learned that indeed all associations having any kind of connection with Europe will be affected by this new regulation. Whether you are based in a European Union country, have members there, organize events in the EU region or allow access to anybody outside the EU to data held within the EU, everybody needs to be aware what to expect as of January 2017. Jonathan Armstrong and Andre Bywater of the legal compliance specialist firm Cordery in the UK have provided great insights into this topic and we would strongly advise you to <a href="http://www.globalstrat.org/referenceresource-material/" target="_blank">listen to the webinar recording here</a>.</div> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <!--[if mso]> </td> <![endif]--><!--[if mso]> </tr> </table> <![endif]--></td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="mcnDividerBlock" style="min-width:100%; width:100%"> <tbody> <tr> <td> <table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="mcnDividerContent" style="border-top-color:#1497CF; border-top-style:double; border-top-width:3px; min-width:100%; width:100%"> <tbody> <tr> <td>&nbsp;</td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <!-- <td class="mcnDividerBlockInner" style="padding: 18px;"> <hr class="mcnDividerContent" style="border-bottom-color:none; border-left-color:none; border-right-color:none; border-bottom-width:0; border-left-width:0; border-right-width:0; margin-top:0; margin-right:0; margin-bottom:0; margin-left:0;" /> --></td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="mcnImageBlock" style="min-width:100%; width:100%"> <tbody> <tr> <td> <table align="left" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="mcnImageContentContainer" style="min-width:100%; width:100%"> <tbody> <tr> <td style="text-align:center"><a href="http://tech.iccaworld.org/" target="_blank" title=""><img alt="" class="mcnImage" src="https://gallery.mailchimp.com/f7b96526669dd1dfb43fd397b/images/c4f0d34c-cc06-4bfb-bbb1-ec6f3b807dee.png" style="display:inline !important; max-width:350px; padding-bottom:0; vertical-align:bottom; width:350px" /> </a></td> </tr> </tbody> </table> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="mcnTextBlock" style="min-width:100%; width:100%"> <tbody> <tr> <td><!--[if mso]> <table align="left" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" width="100%" style="width:100%;"> <tr> <![endif]--><!--[if mso]> <td valign="top" width="396" style="width:396px;"> <![endif]--> <table align="left" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="mcnTextContentContainer" style="max-width:100%; min-width:100%; width:100%"> <tbody> <tr> <td style="text-align:left"> <div style="text-align: left;"><a href="http://tech.iccaworld.org/" target="_blank"><span style="color:#1497cf"><strong>“ICCA Meeting Technology Tool” launched at IMEX in collaboration with Corbin Ball and Simpleview!</strong></span></a><br /> &nbsp;</div> <div style="text-align: justify;">The Meeting Technology Tool is a free, online searchable directory, created to help association planners find the right partners for mobile technology like event apps, virtual meetings and software solutions.

AMP replaces ICCA’s long-standing Research, Sales and Marketing Programme (RSMP), which had previously only been open to ICCA member delegates. Just as with RSMP, this programme is designed for any ICCA members who work with international associations through research, bidding, sales, marketing, ambassador programmes, or who provide organisational or technical services for these meetings. Attendance at AMP is capped at a maximum of 150, to enable the delivery of highly personalised sessions and advice to every attendee.<br /> <br /> Association Executives may attend the event by invitation only.

Overtime many ICCA members have started using this ICCA tool at every trade show and conference their organisation participated, as it significantly improved the effectiveness of their planning and evaluation processes, and encouraged all their staff to think about personal development opportunities as well as how they can contribute towards corporate priorities and targets.<br /> <br /> Inspired by our members we have modified the original publication for association meeting planners, not just for your own use and understanding on how to prove the ROI of your meeting, but to customize to your own association’s particular circumstances and objectives (e.g. if you are running a medical conference you can include individual-delegate objectives around CME accreditation). This generic version is designed to both illustrate the principles of ROI of meetings, and to contain enough concrete detail to usefully copy/paste for your own version.

The review pointed out ideas on what could be useful to include (e.g. we had not included information on WI-FI which is extremely important these days), formulations that could be misinterpreted or were difficult to understand, and hints on what information would be useful to include as mandatory. The very qualified and thorough review from ICCA helped us to publish a bidding document that has resulted in more comparable bids and has made it easier for us to evaluate whether the bidder fulfils our requirements.<br /> <a href="http://www.iccaworld.com/nlps/story.cfm?nlpage=399" target="_blank">Read more...</a></div> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="mcnDividerBlock" style="width:100%"> <tbody> <tr> <td> <table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="mcnDividerContent" style="border-top-color:#1497CF; border-top-style:double; border-top-width:3px; width:100%"> <tbody> <tr> <td>&nbsp;</td> </tr> </tbody> </table> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="mcnTextBlock" style="min-width:100%; width:100%"> <tbody> <tr> <td> <table align="left" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="mcnTextContentContainer" style="min-width:100%; width:100%"> <tbody> <tr> <td style="text-align:left"> <div style="text-align: left;"><a href="http://www.iccaworld.com/npps/story.cfm?nppage=5529" target="_blank">Zika – is your crisis communication plan prepared?</a><br /> &nbsp;</div> <div style="text-align: justify;">The Zika virus is already having a small but growing impact on meetings, but has the potential to quickly become a much more serious threat. Although the travel advisories related to Zika only relate to pregnant women, the idea that others could carry Zika back to their home countries because many don't display symptoms is a tabloid headline writer's perfect scary ingredient for causing a media-hysteria, and will result in meeting delegate numbers to drop.

Seven factors for effective crisis communication for international meetings</em>, it also includes a crisis communication checklist to prepare before an event.<br /> <br /> The appendices include two ICCA case studies on how the organisation dealt with potential crises involving an outbreak of dengue fever before the 2012 ICCA Congress in Puerto Rico, and geopolitical challenges related to ISIS and Ebola at the 2014 ICCA Congress in Turkey, as well as an article on dealing with the media spotlight in times of crisis.<br /> The crisis management guidelines are part of a series of ICCA publications designed to help associations run more efficient meetings. <a href="http://www.iccaworld.com/dcps/doc.cfm?docid=1785" target="_blank">Download a copy now</a>&nbsp;(available to ICCA Association Portal users only).</div> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="mcnDividerBlock" style="width:100%"> <tbody> <tr> <td> <table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="mcnDividerContent" style="border-top-color:#1497CF;

A fresh set of eyes can provide many useful tips on elements which are ambiguous or need further elaboration.&nbsp;Louise Friis-Hansen from the International Federation of Surveyors shares her experience: “ICCA reviewed our bid manual, and we are very grateful for this. The review pointed out ideas on what could be useful to include (e.g. we had not included information on WI-FI which is extremely important these days), formulations that could be misinterpreted or were difficult to understand, and hints on what information would be useful to include as mandatory. The very qualified and thorough review from ICCA helped us to publish a bidding document that has resulted in more comparable bids and has made it easier for us to evaluate whether the bidder fulfils our requirements.&nbsp;<a href="http://iccadata.iccaworld.com/icca/linklog/linkref.cfm?subject=**Batch%20started:%20Share%20inspirational%20speakers%20|%20Bidding%20advice%20|%20Sharpen%20your%20knowledge%20at%20IMEX&amp;goto=http%3A%2F%2Fwww%2Eiccaworld%2Ecom%2Fnlps%2Fstory%2Ecfm%3Fnlpage%3D399"><strong>Read more</strong></a>...</p> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" style="width:100.0%"> <tbody> <tr> <td> <table border="0" cellpadding="1" cellspacing="1" style="width:600px"> <tbody> <tr> <td>&nbsp;</td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <table align="left" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" style="width:100.0%"> <tbody> <tr> <td> <p><a href="http://iccadata.iccaworld.com/icca/linklog/linkref.cfm?subject=**Batch%20started:%20Share%20inspirational%20speakers%20|%20Bidding%20advice%20|%20Sharpen%20your%20knowledge%20at%20IMEX&amp;goto=http%3A%2F%2Ficcadata%2Eiccaworld%2Ecom%2Flinkredirector%2Fr%2Eashx%2FEnewsletter%2520to%2520association%2FMarch%2520Edition%25202015%2FaHR0cDovL3d3dy52aXNpdHNyaWxhbmthLm5ldA" title=""><img id="_x0000_i1029" src="https://gallery.mailchimp.com/f7b96526669dd1dfb43fd397b/images/29b01aac-7671-4b71-bb05-45e4ceac6e77.jpg" style="vertical-align:bottom; width:568px" /></a></p> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" style="width:100.0%"> <tbody> <tr> <td> <table border="0" cellpadding="1" cellspacing="1" style="width:600px"> <tbody> <tr> <td>&nbsp;</td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" style="width:100.0%"> <tbody> <tr> <td> <table align="left" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0"> <tbody> <tr> <td> <p><img id="_x0000_i1030" src="https://gallery.mailchimp.com/f7b96526669dd1dfb43fd397b/images/c7b90681-3eeb-485c-a220-b1862b28e163.png" style="width:194px" /></p> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <table align="right" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" style="width:281px"> <tbody> <tr> <td> <p><a href="http://iccadata.iccaworld.com/icca/linklog/linkref.cfm?subject=**Batch%20started:%20Share%20inspirational%20speakers%20|%20Bidding%20advice%20|%20Sharpen%20your%20knowledge%20at%20IMEX&amp;goto=http%3A%2F%2Fwww%2Eimex%2Dfrankfurt%2Ecom%2Fevents%2Feducation%2Fassociation%2Dday%2F%232015Programme"><strong>Sharpen your knowledge at IMEX Association Day - 18 May</strong></a></p> <p>Association Day at IMEX focuses on how to improve your association and your events, while meeting peers in similar roles.
