The SCOTUS Wayfair vs. South Dakota decision handed down recently means online retailers will be required to collect sales tax from customers in individual states, even if they do not have a physical presence in those states. How does this decision impact associations? If you have a physical product that you are mailing out of state, such as books, you could be subject to sales tax collection and reimbursement.
Every association is different. But no matter who you are or whom you represent, one thing is for certain: there is lot of work to be done.
Whether it’s managing members, raising funds, contending with new rules and regulations, or delivering quality programs that serve your mission, there is only so much that can be done in a given day, week, or year.
And that’s not when you’re trying to hire new employees or keep existing ones, or reduce overhead costs, or stay up to date with new technology and ways of communicating.
Does this sound stressful? Perhaps a bit. But that’s part of the job — managing people, processes, finances, and beyond.
The most successful associations are efficient, tech-savvy, and skilled at communicating with members, sponsors, and their local (and online) communities.
Another trait these associations share: They track employee time.

American Associations Day is the only legislative fly-in where association professionals like you can connect with Congressional offices and share your story on important association issues.

Yesterday MSAE and ten other Michigan-based member organizations jointly filed an Amicus Brief on the case of Tessa Motors, Inc. v. Ruth Johnson, in her official
capacity as Secretary of State and Chief Motor Vehicle Administrator, Bill Schuette, in his official capacity as Attorney General, and Rick Snyder, in his official capacity as Governor. The brief states the importance of the issue of maintaining confidential communications between the members and the organization. Addressed in the brief are three core issues:
I love working for a board.
One of the unique attributes of an association is to have a board that represents members. The CEO/president/executive director has as an element of their scope of work to mentor, advise and care for the board. For some this is a challenge, for others it is a treat.
The Association Societies Alliance's (ASA) newly approved annual leadership award has been named after and posthumously awarded to the late Shane Yates, CAE, CMP, CTA, former executive director of the Ohio Society of Association Executives (OSAE). This award honors his memory and contributions to the association sector after he unexpectedly passed away this spring.
