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.

This year’s AMC Retreat is aimed at helping AMC owners, principles, senior leaders, and other staff focus on growing their AMC. From client prospecting to email marketing to branding to networking, this one-day event is packed with content to help you grow. And back by popular demand, there will also be case study presentations from other AMC executives. At the end of the retreat you will have tools to implement a comprehensive business development strategy in your office and you will be able to communicate effectively through email and social media – for your AMC or your clients. You will know the power of your brand and how to deliberately communicate that value to clients and potential clients. You will be a better networker and have an opportunity to network with fellow AMC colleagues at one of Richmond’s newest roof-top bars. Regardless of your position, you’re sure to walk away with at least one idea to help you, your AMC, or your clients.

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, 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.
