AuSAE announces membership alliance with ASAE
Last week we announced to members an unprecedented partnership between AuSAE and the American Society of Association Executives (ASAE) which from January 1, 2019 will see every AuSAE member also become a member of ASAE as part of our membership offering.
The decision to align our two brands and bundle ASAE membership is one of value. By complementing our existing member benefits program with the strength and depth of the ASAE online offering, members now have access to a broader collection of tools, content, and other practical resources.
This collaboration will also open doors to a vibrant community of international peers in association management—all to help you lead within your organisation and contribute to our mission of building a strong and robust Association Sector in Australia and New Zealand.
I am very proud to end the year with this fantastic news which sets the scene for the great things AuSAE has planned for 2019.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the very hard-working team here at AuSAE. As you all know, the role of an association executive comes with its unique challenges, and many nights away from home is one of them. My thanks and gratitude to Brett Jeffrey and Kerrie Green for their amazing contribution and dedication to delivering value to the membership throughout 2018.
To our support crew in the office – Andrea, Elaine and Tracey – I thank you for your support and excellent member service you deliver each and every day.
Also, thank you to our volunteer board, for giving your time to support the organisation and the profession throughout the year. Your contribution is valued and appreciated.
And lastly, I wish each and everyone one of you a very Merry Christmas, and safe and prosperous new year.
The AuSAE office will be closed from 12 noon on Friday 21 December until Monday 7 January. I look forward to working with you all in 2019!
