Register to PCAAE’s Associations Summit

5th October 2021

The Associations Summit 9 (AS9), presented virtually by the Philippine Council of Associations and Association Executives (PCAAE), is set to be held on November 24-25, 2021 with the support of the Tourism Promotions Board (TPB).

Themed, “Associations and the Pandemic: Lessons Learned and The Way Forward – A Conversation among Members and Stakeholders,” the Summit is expected to draw more than 200 association leaders and professionals here and abroad.

It will feature plenaries and learning sessions to be presented by local and international speakers who will share best practices in association governance, leadership and management. Participating PCAAE members will also earn points that could lead to earning the title, Certified Professional Association Executive (CPAE).

Aside from TPB, the Summit is also supported by the Manila-headquartered Association of Development Financing Institutions in Asia and the Pacific (ADFIAP), the Philippine International Convention Center (PICC), and the Washington, D.C.-based American Society of Association Executives (ASAE). 

The Summit will also be the fitting venue of the “Ang Susi” Awards 2021 night. “Ang Susi” stands for “Associations nurture National Growth through Social Unity and Sustainability Innovations” and also symbolizes the key role that the association community and its professionals contribute to national economic development.

PCAAE is dubbed the “association of/for associations,” as it is the Philippines’ only organization that caters to the needs of associations and association managers. Since it was formed eight years ago, the number of association professional members has increased to 300 representing as many associations and other membership organizations all over the country. PCAAE also co-founded and currently serves as the presidency of the Asia-Pacific Federation of Association Organizations (APFAO), a regional network of national membership organizations of associations.

For registration and other inquiries on AS9, contact Ms. Sandy Lim of the PCAAE Secretariat at telephone number 8816-1672 / 88449090 or e-mail and check out its website,, or on Facebook (
