TSAE understands what it takes to be an association professional. It’s about having an ambitious spirit, a servant’s heart and a drive to organize people toward a shared vision.

But no association professional can it do it all alone. And that’s where we come in.

TSAE serves association professionals by creating strong connections – to peers, information, resources, and inspiration – that advance them and their organizations.

We bring together a welcoming community of high-achieving individuals who bring out the best in each other at all levels of their career, because ultimately, we are better together.
