American Associations Day, March 21-22, 2018

As leaders of state, local, and regional associations from across the country and members of the American Associations Day Host Committee, we have come together with the common goal of advocating for our community. We are asking you to join association executives from around the country in DC March 21-22, 2018 to share with Congress The Power of A Message: associations make the world smarter, safer, and better every day.

Join us at American Associations Day to learn about the issues, meet association professionals, and network at the ASAE Board Reception. From tax reform to defending association meetings, there is no shortage of issues that threaten the association community. Tell your story about the critical role your organization plays in your community. Because if Congress has no idea, then how will they stand up for us?

No experience in government relations is needed to participate! ASAE makes it easy: they will provide training on the most effective way to share our message, resources for visiting your Congressional offices, and even a scholarship to help you get there. States from around the country are need for this effort.

There is no registration fee for this event. Additionally, a scholarship is available for attendees from outside the DC-metro area. This event also includes 3.5 CAE credit hours.
