Welcome to AzSAE!

AzSAE is for all levels of management and all types of nonprofits, from chief executives to staff managers and from international trade associations to local philanthropic organizations. We have a variety of educational programs targeted to different position levels and experience - from the "big picture" to specialized sessions. 

Like every member organization, AZSAE is adjusting our content and offerings for digital consumption.  At present, we are holding weekly Town Halls at no cost to participants because we believe the information is important and discussing matters amongst your peers is vital during challenging times to membership organizations.  

These offerings take money to produce and present, and the business of AZSAE goes onward.  We welcome any donations you can make at this time.  AZSAE is a 501(c)6 organization.  As such, your contributions are not deductible as a charitable donation, but may be itemized on your tax returns.  Please confer with your tax professional to determine how to utilize your contribution.

ASAE’s Urgent Appeal to Congress for Emergency Aid

Dear ASAE Members and Advocates: 
During this challenging time, ASAE is doing everything it can to help its members and association professionals nationwide continue their critical missions and navigate the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic as safely as possible.  

To that end, yesterday ASAE sent an urgent appeal to Congressional leaders to again advocate significant, emergency financial support to the association and nonprofit communities. ASAE specifically requests $25 billion in capital assistance for our sector, as many organizations and their missions are in jeopardy. ASAE also proposes a risk insurance program to mandate that businesses who demonstrate significant business interruption and sharp decline in present and future revenue would be insured in case of a possible pandemic or epidemic. 

We encourage you to write your legislators with this urgent appeal to help ensure associations and nonprofits – as well as their employees and constituents – are secure throughout and beyond this crisis.  

For resources and more information to help address the impact of COVID-19, visit ASAE’s website

Thank you for your strong support. 

Susan Robertson, CAE
President and CEO
