McLoughlin, Frieda, Journal of Banking and Financial Services
Profit from partnership with the AIBF
As with most associations, the Australasian Institute of Banking + Finance (AIBF) is a member-based, not for profit organisation, with a proud professional history spanning more than 116 years.
The AIBF provides a wide range of professional programs and services to the banking and finance industry practitioner in Australia and New Zealand, through its regional executive officers. We are located in every Australian state as well as the ACT, with two NZ representatives in Wellington and Auckland.
The Institute acts to provide professional services to enable networking between industry practitioners, as well as to educate the public on relevant issues.
Given the AIBF's members and their employers are significant users of professional services, they are a prime market for potential sponsors such as information providers, consultants and legal and accounting firms.
There are numerous opportunities for companies to partner with the Institute, including:
* advertising in the B+FS journal to reach a global membership of 12,000 and a known readership of more than 35,000
* submitting quality articles to the B+FS journal
* speaking opportunities at the many professional development functions held across Australasia; or
* sponsoring events--more than 100 are held across Australia and New Zealand each year.
The benefits of forging an alliance with the AIBF include:
* Access to senior management and influential industry figures--the real decision makers
* The global appeal and kudos of being actively involved in the banking and finance industry
* A better understanding of future industry directions, resulting in more integrity for your organisation
* Becoming active partners with customers and potential clients from within the profession
* Promoting products and services and lead generation
* Networking and relationship building; and
* Business growth, a better bottom line and enhanced brand awareness.
