Naomi Searle, Australasian Military Medicine Association Manager, Finalist in the International Young Executive of the Year Award

Young Hobart professional, Naomi Searle, is the only Australian shortlisted for the Association Network’s Young Association Executive of the Year Award for her work with the Australasian Military Medicine Association (AMMA).

The international award recognises association executives in the first ten years of their career who are making outstanding contributions to the sector. Naomi is the Conference and Association Manager for AMMA and also manages their quarterly journal, the Journal of Military and Veterans’ Health. Naomi was nominated for the award after a great first year in the role that saw her increase the Association’s conference profit by over 20% and maintain strong connections with its national and international members. “I was expecting a kind email saying that I was unsuccessful as I had only been in the role nine months,” said Naomi. “So it was amazing when I made the top three alongside two highly accomplished international young association professionals.”

Paula Leishman, Managing Director of Leishman Associates who have managed the association since 1996, says that Naomi’s shortlisting in the top three Young Associations Executives was well deserved. “Naomi has worked with us for the last two years and during that time she has demonstrated a maturity well beyond her years, together with a capacity and willingness to learn. Providing her with the opportunity to reinvigorate AMMA has been a great decision. This achievement is further testament to the young talent that we have here in Tasmania.”

Naomi will travel to Berlin on the 9th April to attend the award ceremony and the annual Association Congress. “I’m excited to network with other association professionals and see how they are tackling challenges such as member retention, corporate sponsorship and new innovations in Association Management,” said Naomi.
