Your organization's contribution will help ESSAE to better serve its members through expanded services, new programs, and professional development opportunities.

Key supporters provide ESSAE with the means to/for:

  • Association advocacy efforts. ESSAE continues to raise awareness of the important and impact of association to the life and success of New York State, as well as make our elected officials know that ESSAE is the “go-to” source on all matter relating to associations.
  • Improve and support technology. ESSAE utilizes association management software, providing members with an enhanced event registration system, access to an improved membership directory and online community discussion board, and a user friendly website. All to streamline access to information and provide new opportunities for growth, partnerships, and advertising.
  • Fill the book shelves of ESSAE’s library! From Association Law Books to CAE Study Guides to Meeting Planning Tips and many more – ESSAE offers Members access to a complimentary lending library. We currently offer over 200 number of books, but we need to keep things up to date and offer the best resources.
  • Support the Association Leadership Academy (ALA)! ALA is a creative and unique learning opportunity for emerging executives and current association executives.
  • Bring in high level professional speakers to our programs and provide new opportunities for current and prospective members to network and share ideas.
  • And so much more!

For all the reasons above, and many more, we hope you will consider this as an investment in the future of your organization in the new year.
