What is the Partner Program?

Created in October 2011, VSAE’s Partner Program was designed by a diverse group of Associate members along with the leadership and staff of VSAE. It is intended to create more value for those Associate members actively engaged and financially committed to promoting their product or services to VSAE members. Partner packages are completely customizable so you can pick and choose how you want to interface with the VSAE membership.

The program returns with even more ways for Associate members to connect with and support the association community. Over the past few years, VSAE’s Partner Program has seen various tweaks to ensure that your support is met with maximized returns. We are confident that this year’s Partner Program is one of the best we have ever offered, and we invite you to be a Partner in the shared growth of your association community.

“Now that The Main has opened we can evaluate the various sponsorship and investment opportunities we were presented during the pre-opening phase. Our active membership was essential, however without question our commitment to the Partner Program with VSAE proved to be the greatest return on investment. It allowed us to take full advantage of unique engagement events with key decision makers beyond the networking prospects the monthly luncheons provided. The Main, through the Partner Program, enjoys an extraordinary relationship with the Virginia association community, our most important market segment."
- Kurt Krause, Hilton Norfolk the Main
