What Our Members Say

  • MSAE has been a tremendous resource for me as an association communications official. Attending MSAE conferences, workshops and participating on its various committees has made me a better communicator and employee. Nearly every day I find myself using information or a skill I acquired by attending an MSAE-sponsored program.

    Matt Bach, director, media relations
    Michigan Municipal League

  • As associations, no one else does quite what we do. That’s why it’s important to get together to exchange ideas, get support and keep informed about issues, topics and practices unique to us. MSAE facilitates that extremely well and that’s why I’ve been an active member since 2002. In my opinion, it’s a no-brainer.

    Aimee L. Bahs, MBA, CAE, PCM, director of marketing
    Michigan Chamber of Commerce

  • MSAE has been a very valuable resource for me during my first years as an association executive. I have found that there are areas that are specific to association management that even my MBA had not focused on. Membership in MSAE has helped provide the resources I need to fill in my knowledge gaps as well as providing access to many other executives from Michigan who have been willing to help me every step along the way.
