"You will not find a more affordable and impactful member experience than you will at AzSAE. The networking alone has helped me grow our association by learning new strategies, navigating ever changing policies and connecting with people I genuinely want to meet and get to know. Layer in the luncheons, Executive Getaway, the Forum, Awards Gala and many other educational opportunities the ROI for my dues is outstanding.

“AzSAE offers an opportunity to meet and network with peers in the association management field.  Since my first introduction to AzSAE more than 40 years ago, I have truly enjoyed the participation with my peers.  In addition, associate members provide immeasurable benefit with contacts representing hotels, rental companies, transportation companies, convention bureaus, and others in the meeting planning industry.  AzSAE is truly a family of individuals who network and learn about association management.  It has certainly been well worth the time and effort!”

“I have been an active member of AzSAE for 20+ years and truly value the long-standing relationships with other members that I have formed over the years.  I also am honored to have had the opportunity to serve on the AzSAE Board for 2 terms and to serve on the AzSAE Membership Committee for many years during that time.  One of the many recent highlights has been hosting the AzSAE Executive & Member Getaway Retreat at Poco Diablo Resort to provide education & explore Sedona with our members!  I have found the resources, education & networking within AzSAE to be excellent and so I regularly attend the monthly meetings, educational forums and awards events throughout the year.  AzSAE is one of the professional industry associations that I most highly value, with truly outstanding & inspiring members that are making a difference through Association Management every day!”

"I've been a member of AZSAE for about 3 years, and every year has been more fulfilling than the last.  Together, we tackle issues that lead to the betterment of all associations in Arizona, and contribute to the understanding of our particular industry sector.  Not just for the upper management, AZSAE has a place for every association employee and offers professional development unique to the concerns and best practices of membership organizations.  Additionally, the information offered often applies across the board for all 501(c) organizations.  The unique Certified Association Executive certification is one-of-a-kind and is worth membership alone."

“The most welcoming Chapter of ASAE is the Arizona Chapter, hands down. During my first year with AZSAE, my new connections allowed me to develop genuine relationships with both industry partners and association leaders alike. The Chapter provides its members with outstanding networking and educational programs, and what an honor it was to partake as an award presenter during the 55thAnnual Awards Gala this past December. On behalf of Caesars Entertainment and Harrah’s Ak-Chin, I’m looking forward to our continuous partnership in the upcoming years.”
