The Membership Directory & Resource Guide is a valuable marketing tool, providing access to all members of the association as well as optimum advertising opportunities.

Advertising in the Association Resource, web-site and Membership Directory adds additional targeted exposure to hundreds of association decision-makers. You can also submit editorial articles on issues relevant to the association industry, to establish yourself as a resource.
Sponsorships of social events, the trade show, educational events and cocktail receptions increase your visibility to associations and win you recognition with ESSAE members. Opportunities here!
Associate members are elected to the Board of Directors to advise ESSAE about the unique needs and concerns of vendors and also to recommend strategies concerning industry issues. Associate members are also encouraged to participate on a Task Force to lend expertise and advice.
ESSAE selects experts from within the vendor industry as speakers and panelists to present topics of interests to association professionals at monthly luncheon presentations and educational programming throughout the year. Suppliers Guide is receiving a new look and dynamic overhaul as part of ESSAE’s website renovation! Multiple pictures, contact information and hotlinks will be made available to showcase your products and services as a valued supplier member of ESSAE.
