The European Society of Association Executives (ESAE) has announced its collaboration with the American Society of Association Executives (ASAE). The important partnership will bring together association leaders from the two sides of the Atlantic along with opportunities for engagement and knowledge sharing.
“The ESAE Board is delighted to be working closely with ASAE now under Michelle Mason’s leadership,” said ESAE President Mike Morrissey. “ASAE has an excellent reputation for supporting association leaders and executives throughout their career, so we are looking forward to collaborating on content that is relevant for our members on both sides of the Atlantic. Although there are cultural differences, there are many similar challenges and opportunities for associations based in Europe and the U.S. By sharing our experience, we believe we can all benefit during these times of change.”
Learning opportunities are already underway with content curated by the two new partners, including a virtual CEO-level program this Spring with ASAE and ESAE leadership; and a virtual practical program for association CEOs based in Europe and the U.S. on navigating today’s rapidly changing environment.
“The role of associations is rapidly changing and many of the meta trends influencing ASAE’s strategic direction are shared by our global colleagues,” said ASAE President and CEO Michelle Mason, FASAE, CAE. “This reality necessitates more collaborative thinking and idea sharing between leaders of organizations worldwide. ASAE’s collaboration with ESAE is an acknowledgement that no one organization has all the answers. Together, we will work to enhance the collective knowledge of the association ecosystem and better unify our vast global association community.”
