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.

Join VSAE on October 4 at the Greater Richmond Convention Center for Virginia's premier tradeshow for association executives, professional meeting planners, and other qualified non-profit leaders. The conference begins with an enlightening keynote presentation, "Rock Your Engagement" by Sherene McHenry. Breakout session topics include membership recruiting and engaging, emergency preparedness for meetings, transforming your workplace culture, and how to supersize your success. The tradeshow features over 60 exhibitors representing meeting facilities throughout the Commonwealth as well as other industry-related businesses. Regardless of your job title, if you are a professional meeting planner or work for an association, this event will help you deliver more value to your meeting attendees, to your customers, and to your members.
