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.
