MSAE can take you there! One of the major benefits of being an MSAE member is the many opportunities to network with members from other associations as well as associate members, share professional issues, exchange ideas, and make the right connections for your association, and because networking isn't always in person our redesigned website features social connections that will allow you to interact with peers on your own schedule.

In addition, MSAE offers a variety of educational programs to keep you at the top of your game as an association executive. A Speakers' Showcase and Meeting Planners' Trade Show round out annual events of interest.

At any one of these events, you'll earn credits toward the CAE, CMP, and other professional credentials while learning about topics crucial to association management including:

  • contracts & meeting site negotiations
  • labor laws & personnel guidelines
  • governance issues
  • audits & board relations
  • staff issues, motivations & rewards
  • balancing business & personal life

Being an MSAE member doesn't mean it's all business. Besides interaction at business meetings and learning at educational programs, MSAE hosts terrific social events like the annual FunFest, Holiday/Christmas party, and much more. What's even better is that these functions go to support the MSAE Foundation, which provides scholarships to Missouri students.
