“The occupational licensing agencies MSAE is fortunate enough to work with continue to demonstrate their worth in not only the protection of consumers, but also in the daily advancement and benefit of their industries,” said Taylor Benavente, Association Industry Advocate. “A large part of protecting our citizens is made possible by the standard-setting occupational regulations they offer. MSAE was proud to offer testimony on HB 6114 to support healthy communities and the best practices which associations uniquely promote.”
Ensuring a knowledgeable, professional and successful community is MSAE’s mission and core to our long-term success. Because we are a member-first organization, MSAE has continuously pushed the envelope and experimented with the best means to deliver a unique and enriching experience to all of our members and partners.
But in this current era of rapid technological, social and economic change, how we serve our members had to shift to reflect the new realities of our society. After conducting a comprehensive analysis of our organizational structure, program offerings and overall operations, the MSAE Board has approved a “New MSAE”.
With MSAE’s new organizational membership model, our membership has more than doubled to over 1,700 members. No longer are we an association just for the Chief Staff Executive…we’re here to serve the entire association staff. During the past year, we’ve created many new programs, webinars, peer-to-peer community of practice groups, and resources to address the needs of all staff levels.
