Conference Education

In-Person Events Update

To the ESSAE Members & Community: Though the Coronavirus crisis has made for unsettling times, each day we learn more and create plans to move forward. Like you, we’re following advice and guidelines from our partners at ASAE, the CDC, and the New York governor’s office surrounding precautionary measures. The health and wellbeing of our staff, attendees, partners, and community comes first, which is why, as of April 3, 2020, we’ve decided to postpone all upcoming in-person events until further notice. Additionally, as you may already know, ESSAE staff is working remotely with the full capabilities of serving our members. [MORE]

Annual Conference and Trade Show – will be rescheduled
We’re working with our event partners to reschedule this event for mid-fall/early winter. Current exhibitors and sponsors will automatically be credited for any funds paid, and if refunds are needed, we will certainly accommodate those requests. We appreciate your patience as we work out the details. Please wait to make any adjustments to your booth registration until we have confirmed and announced the new date in the next few weeks. Existing reservations at the host hotel (Saratoga Hilton) will be automatically cancelled, and no fees will be owed on these rooms.

Why Face to Face Matters: The Power of Professional Development

Even in our digitally connected world and workplace, nothing compares to the value that face-to-face meetings, events, and conferences provide. 

Professional development opportunities are more important now than ever before. Continuing education opportunities are a great way to develop employee skills, boost morale and improve recruitment efforts. Employees who participate in professional development are more engaged, loyal, and committed to meeting their company’s challenges. And employees who apply new skills and knowledge to their work help their company become more competitive.

But not only that, our educational offerings provide attendees with access to information and peers to help members and industry professionals solve problems, make smarter decisions, improve skills sets, and become better association leaders. 

In additional to the education, the afternoon Trade Show provides an unique opportunity to connect with attendees and provide a experience that resonates on a personal level. Exhibitions foster business relationships and deliver unique value. No other face-to-face interaction comes close to the value of walking the trade show floor and meeting with vendors who understand YOUR business needs.
