ESSAE is a non-profit association that represents association professionals, those engaged in the management of voluntary trade and professional organizations. You could say we are the association for associations. We currently have more than 470 members from around New York State. Our goal is to the fortify the association profession, by providing quality education, leadership and professional development opportunities to association executives, association staff, meeting professionals, and our business partners. Our mission is to demonstrate and promote the many ways associations benefit society – every single day!
ESSAE has a proud legacy of over 35 years in service, having helped more than 50 professionals achieve the Certified Association Executive (CAE) designation. In 2016, we reinvigorated our committee structure and now have 15 working volunteer committees! 2016 has been (and continues to be) a transformational time for ESSAE. We are growing membership, upgrading our technology and website, relocating offices, and designing new partnership opportunities…and the list goes on! It is an exciting time to part of the association.
One of the best things about ESSAE is that it networks you with key leaders of the association community. Providing you with the ability to share ideas with the executives of professional, trade and business associations, and benefit from contacts with the affiliate businesses serving the association community.
Other benefits of ESSAE include:
