ESSAE has embarked on an ambitious strategic initiative with one overarching goal in mind — to support our members’ professional success in new and creative ways.

To achieve our goal, our committees are hard at work developing quality education and training, a stronger communications network, a visible legislative presence, and partnerships and affiliations that support member and association-wide growth.

KEY to ESSAE’s success is tapping into the knowledge and talents of members, like you, to serve on ESSAE committees.
The committee dialogue we are already experiencing around board tables and on conference calls is inspiring. The exchange of knowledge and ideas, and the willingness among colleagues to support projects, has resulted in a positive start to our committee work, and more. Our committees are also connecting members with one another in small group settings, and providing new opportunities to share information and build professional networks.

We are looking for more volunteers!

Please join the conversation and make a difference — with the added benefit of networking among your peers. Committees we are especially looking to grow include:

  • 2024 & 2025 Trade Show Committees (association executives & meeting planners needed!)
  • Nominations & Leadership Development
  • New “Strategic Services” Task Force
  • Rita Lashway Scholarship Committee
  • New “Association Board Management” Curriculum Development Task Force (2Q 2024)
  • 2024 - 2025 Association Leadership Academy(ALA) Committee
  • Membership Committee
  • Finance Committee
  • Audit Committee
  • Program Committee
  • 2024 -2025 Association Leadership Academy (ALA)
  • Government Affairs Committee (GAC)
  • Certified Association Executive (CAE)
  • Awards Committee
  • By-Laws

In addition to our committees, we have event and micro-opportunities available!

  • Panelists and Speakers
  • Event Registration Desk
  • Introduce Session and Breakout Speakers
  • New Member Ambassadors
  • And many more!

We are committed to keeping committee work focused and respectful of your time and talents. Ready to serve? Simply email Carrie Laney at [email protected] and include your completed committee form!

As always, thank you for your membership in ESSAE and all you do to support our profession!

Best regards,
