NE/SAE prides itself on being a trusted partner with our members and the greater association community. As we monitor the changing circumstances surrounding the coronavirus (COVID-19) and stay in touch with guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) and the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, we invite you to do the same.

As this is a very fluid situation, we will continue to be in contact with our members and other stakeholders in the coming weeks and months about the status of NE/SAE programming and events. 

With the help of our colleauges in the association community, we've pulled together some links and resources that may be helpful to our members. 

Do you have any questions or concerns that NE/SAE can help you with? Let us know! Do you have an idea or story about how your association is managing through this pandemic? We want to hear from you! 





Nominations are now being sought for NE/SAE's Rising Star Award and Super Star Award! 

The nomination deadline is April 27, 2020. Awards will be presented in conjunction with our 2020 Annual Meeting. 

The Rising Star Award was created to recognize exceptional up and coming association professionals. Click here for more information and a nomination form. Rising Stars do not need to be current members of NE/SAE, and the winner will receive a complimentary one-year NE/SAE membership.

The Super Star Award recognizes individuals who have gone above and beyond in their volunteer service to NE/SAE. Click here for more information and a nomination form.

We look forward to recognizing our outstanding members! 


NE/SAE is excited to announce a new member benefit: a real-time compensation benchmarking tool, developed in collaboration with the other state and regional societies of association executives throughout the country.
