Membership That's Right for You
MSAE understands what it takes to be an association professional. It’s about having an ambitious spirit, a servant’s heart and a drive to organize people toward a shared vision.
But no association professional can do it all alone. And that’s where we come in.
MSAE serves association professionals by creating strong connections – to peers, information, resources, and inspiration – that advance them and their organizations.
We bring together a welcoming community of high-achieving individuals who bring out the best in each other at all levels of their careers because ultimately, we are better together. We offer three main types of membership - browse through the tabs below to find the right fit for you.
Associations, convention and visitors bureaus, chambers, and association management companies are able to ensure all of their employees enjoy the benefits of MSAE membership by taking advantage of organizational membership. Organizational membership is of great value as it grants full member benefits to the entire staff of the organization.
Organizational membership levels are based on the number of full-time director-level staff in addition to the CEO. Only directors with association-related responsibilities are counted towards membership; directors whose work is focused on industry-specific work or insurance should not be counted towards the membership level. For example, a Director of Marketing counts towards the number of total directors but a Director of Medicare Billing would not.
|CEO with no Directors and unlimited staff||$390|
|CEO with 1-2 Directors and unlimited staff||$625|
|CEO with 3 Directors and unlimited staff||$870|
|CEO with 4-5 Directors and unlimited staff||$1210|
|CEO with 6-12 Directors and unlimited staff||$1810|
|CEO with 13+ Directors and unlimited staff||$3010|
