Build Your Professional Network

A well-developed professional network is an essential career asset as well as a source of personal support. MSAE exists to inspire, empower, and connect you to the association community through knowledge, valued relationships, and trusted resources. From in-person gatherings with structured idea-sharing and fun activities to virtual discussion groups and resource libraries, MSAE offers a variety of avenues to cultivate your professional network. 

Associ8@5:08

Join association and industry colleagues at Associ8@5:08 – MSAE’s free quarterly networking events. Hosted at destination venues throughout Michigan, Associ8@5:08 are great opportunities to get caught up peers and share ideas in a relaxed, friendly environment. If your venue is interested in hosting one of our after-hour events, please contact MSAE. Sponsorship opportunities are available.

Sponsorship opportunities available. 

Shared Interest Groups

Shared Interest Groups (SIGs) provide a no-pressure environment to learn from and network with like-minded peers. SIGs meet in person and virtually several times per year and also have their own online community. SIGs are included with your membership. Join one or several to maximize your learning and networking potential. Check out the community list to find the SIG that will work for you! 

Annual Golf Outing

What better way to network with industry and association professionals than over a game of golf? The Annual Golf Outing consists of men’s, women’s, and mixed division foursomes at a location that is to be determined every year by our Golf Task Force. Don’t have a team? No worries – we’ll pair you with other individuals and you can grow your network. Consider becoming a sponsor! Opportunities include game holes, greens, tee boxes and more. Contact MSAE to learn more.
