The Institute of Association Leadership is the professional community for current and future chief executives, and C-suite professionals who lead within the unique environment of the membership sector.

Refocused on the elevation of association leaders, the IAL is committed to helping members to be the professionals capable of advancing society and is an expanding global network of professional association leaders.

CPL has an excellent reputation in this sector and I am confident that this partnership will lead to benefits for IAL, our members and CPL.”

As part of the agreement, CPL will support IAL’s member services and content programme, including blogs, podcasts and the IAL’s Forum Focus where CPL will lead on a relevant issue or trend and then facilitate a group discussion. 

 “We are really pleased to confirm this partnership,” said CPL director Sophie Hewitt-Jones. “It demonstrates our commitment to developing, growing and advancing the association sector and offers us the opportunity to interact with the IAL’s exclusive and influential membership base.”

Laura Gibson, for the IAL, said: “We are delighted that CPL has become the latest expert organisation to sign an exclusive partnership with IAL. CPL has an excellent reputation in this sector and I am confident that this partnership will lead to benefits for IAL, our members and CPL.”
