Join the American Associations Day Host Committee in D.C.
As leaders of state associations from across the country and members of the American Associations Day Host Committee, we have come together with the common goal of advocating for our community. We are asking you to join us in DC March 9-10 to share with Congress the Power of A Message: associations impact our future, fuel the economy, enrich lives and keep us competitive.
Join us at American Associations Day to learn about the issues, meet association professionals from your state and around the country, and attend the ASAE Board Reception.

Virtual events can be a welcome, practical addition to your association’s event lineup. Virtual events offer convenience and flexibility for speakers and attendees. They often cost less to produce than live events and the savings from which can be passed on to members, making it easier to be engaged with your association. Although there are some perceived barriers to hosting a virtual event, today’s technology largely provides a quality experience even for the most basic computer setup.
