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.

Come join fellow VSAE members for the third annual SIG-a-Palooza, a collection of small Shared Interest Group (SIG) meetings. The SIGs are member-led groups organized around areas of interest. They offer a forum for peer-to-peer learning in a small group atmosphere. The SIGs are a great way for association executives and other leaders to learn from colleagues about the issues relevant to them. If you've never been to SIG meeting, now is the time to try one out. Current active SIGs are: AMCs, Associate Member, Communications & Marketing, Emerging Association Professionals, Government Affairs, Large Association CEOs, Meeting Planner, Senior Staff, and Small Association CEOs. The SIG-a-Palooza is open to all, including Associate members and guests. A breakfast buffet, at which volunteers will be recognized, precedes the SIG meetings.
