The American Society of Association Executives (ASAE) held its 2019 Annual Meeting in Columbus, Ohio, earlier this month, and more than 25 NE/SAE members were in attendance. Members had a chance to connect at the hip Denmark on High for a meet-up before the opening general session kicked off three days of education, exhibits, and networking.

NE/SAE's Chair (Lynda Layer, CAE) and Executive Director (Andrew Finn, MSc, MBA, CAE) were in attendance (image right). Andrew also participated in the annual summer meeting of the Association Societies Alliance, the association for chief executives of the state, local, and regional societies of association executives from across the country. We look forward to sharing some exciting new developments about several member of our member benefits, including webinars and compensation studies, in the coming months.

One of NE/SAE's Board Members, Kevin Monteiro, CAE, celebrated his achievement of earning the Certified Association Executive (CAE) credential earlier this year by walking across the stage at the annual awards ceremony held on Tuesday, August 13. Congratulations, Kevin!

New this year, after the conference we polled attendees from our membership about the most impactful educational sessions, networking activities, and conference elements that stood out to them. We look forward to bringing some insights from what has been called "the Super Bowl of meetings" to future NE/SAE conferences! 


We've rounded up a few of our favorite recently-trending articles featured in ASAE's Associations Now from the past month! 

Why New Leaders are at Risk of Failure

A recent study shows that CEO transitions are happening more often - and under tougher circumstances. Their replacements will need more support than they’re usually given.

Make Your Meeting a Solutions Center

People often attend your conference because they’re looking for solutions to their problems. Consider how you can reinvent your expo hall or other meeting elements to deliver on that need.

Why Nonprofits Struggle to Show Fundraising Outcomes

Nonprofit executives say improving their tracking of fundraising impact is a top priority, according to recent research from Oracle NetSuite, but outcomes are harder to show than dollars raised.

Send the Right Message About Membership ROI

Your messaging on membership’s return on investment is often as important as the benefits you provide. Consider whether you’re striking the right tone.

As we enter the last few months of 2019, you may be preparing for end-of-the year performance evaluations and getting a jump-start on next year's budget. When it comes to compensation and benefits, get the insights you need in the 2019 Compensation and Benefits Survey! 

 NE/SAE's 2019 Compensation & Benefits Survey is a report on executive and staff salaries, personnel practices, and fringe benefits, categorized by budget classification and association type. This is the 16th in a series of surveys on association compensation and benefits practices.

This survey includes two reports, one with information from the 30 states that participated in the study, and one from the New England Society of Association Executive Members. Compensation is reported for positions in trade associations and professional societies in all budget sizes. The positions defined for the survey include the chief paid executive, the deputy chief paid executive, staff specialists, and clerical positions. The compensation breakdowns are by budget size, association type, and regional location.

2019 Survey Pricing 

$50 for participating members, $125 for non-participating members

$100 for participating non-members, $175 for non-participating non-members
