VSAE (Virginia Society of Association Executives) is the only association in Virginia that serves the commonwealth's association management industry.

We focus our resources on the professional development needs of our members by providing information, education, and ideas to assist association executives in the profession.

Our vision is to create an engaged community of association executives focused on developing each other and enhancing the professionalism of the association management industry. We do this by delivering value to association executives in the Commonwealth of Virginia by creating a community for collaboration, education, and professional growth.

VSAE member Christopher R. Jones will lead us in an exploration of the attributes of an authentic leader in his seminar, "The 7 Disciplines of Authentic Leaders for Association Leaders." He'll include rich examples from real-life stories of leaders with whom he has worked and a panel interview with executives who strive for authentic leadership within their associations. You'll leave ready to immediately implement simple actions from each of the seven disciplines. In addition to consulting leadership teams across multiple industries for the past 30 years, Christopher hosts a weekly podcast in which he interviews leaders of all types. In his luncheon presentation, "Lessons Learned from The Authentic Leader Show Podcast," he'll share some of his guests' most powerful insights and breakthrough moments, as well as the rituals, mindsets, and daily actions they take to succeed.
