The Future of Associations
Associations are mediators between society and politics. This makes them a clear and indispensable expression of our democracy. The organisation of associations consists of both full-time and volunteer workers. This makes them authentic, but also complex. And processes in associations are correspondingly complex. They must always respond to the market and the needs of their members. Trends such as globalisation, demographic and digital changes are reinforcing the impending changes. We support associations in meeting the challenges they face and mastering them – not only to be ready for the future, but to play a part in shaping it.
