What is Think Tank?

The FSAE Foundation hosts a bi-annual Think Tank to contribute to the association management knowledge base. The meeting gathers a small group of association decision makers to contemplate an issue, concern, topic, or idea concerning the operation of associations and/or the association management profession. The group, with the assistance of our informed facilitator, draws conclusions and drafts a report to contribute to the association community.

FSAE Executive Members in good standing, FSAE Board of Directors and Foundation Trustees are eligible to participate in this exciting event. The white papers below are the products of past Think Tank meetings.
