Registration for the #ESSAEAnnual is now OPEN! Join us on Thursday, June 6, 2019 at the Albany Capital Center for the Empire State Society of Association Executive’s (ESSAE) 40th Annual Conference & Trade Show. Even in our digitally connected world and workplace, nothing compares to the value that face-to-face meetings, events, and conferences deliver. The ESSAE annual conference and trade show affords attendees with a unique opportunity to connect with professionals and presents them with an experience that resonates on a personal level. Networking and continuing education opportunities are a great way to develop employee skills, boost morale and improve recruitment efforts. 

ESSAE Intern Program: In an effort to advance ESSAE's internship program initiative, we are working to establish connections with local colleges as a resource for internships and for those interested in association management. Is YOUR association interested in hosting an intern? If so, please contact ESSAE with details on the project scope and time frame.
