Why You Should Join FSAE

FSAE Members FSAE Member Business FSAE Education  


For over 50 years, association professionals have enhanced their careers and ensured professional growth and success because of their allegiance with FSAE.

Association Management has its own challenges and complexities. It’s helpful to be able to learn from others that have the same difficulties and experiences as you. FSAE fosters that collaboration through networking and educational events, online communities and resources. Our members include anyone who works for an association such as CEOs, management, meeting planners, membership staff, marketing staff, the receptionist and anyone in between.

FSAE is committed to diversity and inclusion at every level of the organization. Diversity and Inclusion includes, but is not limited to, age, gender, race, religion, ethnicity, disability, appearance, sexual orientation, gender identity, personality type and geographic location.  FSAE understands that diversity and inclusion allows us to make better decisions because we are exposed to different opinions, perceptions, values and experiences.  These differences are integrated throughout FSAE to create an experience that expands everyone’s horizons and opportunities for engagement, learning and leadership. 

Industry suppliers are also members of FSAE, including hoteliers, CVB staff, destination representatives, technology providers and service providers. Click here to learn more about our membership categories.
