We do this by delivering value to association executives in the Commonwealth of Virginia by creating a community for collaboration, education, and professional growth.


June Seminar Series


Join VSAE on Friday, June 1, 2018 at the Richmond Marriott Downtown for our next Seminar Series with Lunch. For the seminar, Liz Weber of Weber Business Services, LLC will present "Something Needs to Change Around Here - The Five Stages to Leveraging Your Volunteer Leadership." This simple model will help you quickly identify why association staff and volunteers under-perform, depend upon you to solve their problems, and cause you to work the long hours you do. In addition, you will be able to take a free leadership assessment before Liz’s program to learn which of the 5 stages of leadership you're modeling and what specific changes to make to enhance your own and your team's performance. In the luncheon presentation, "Leveraging Stage 3 Leadership with Smart Strategic Plans," Liz will highlight six steps to make your strategic plan clear, concise, and workable so you can ensure your association's continued relevance and success.
