No matter what your role or experience is within the association industry, MSAE is here to help you develop as a professional, improve your leadership skills and expand your knowledge base. MSAE’s dues year is October 1 through September 30. Active Individual Memberships stay with the individual should they leave their position. Organizational and Allied Supplier Partner Memberships stay with the association/company.
Dues are based on the number of staff that are full time director-level and above (including CSES), and grants full membership benefits to the entire staff.
To determine your dues:
- Include those that report directly to the Chief Staff Executive and have full responsibility for managing a department of the organization. Directors responsible only for industry-specific expertise should not be counted.
- For a staff of 4 or fewer with 70% or more at the director-level, divide the number of directors in half to determine your dues, i.e., staff of 4 with 3 directors = 75% directors. 3 ÷ 2 =1.5; then you would report 1 director (round down)
- For a staff of 5 or greater with 50% or more at the director-level, divide the number of directors in half to determine your dues, i.e. staff of 12 with 8 directors = 67% directors. 8 ÷ 2 = 4; then you would report 4 directors.
This year you can retain your individual membership with MSAE. See the table below for the different types of individual membership.
