Message from the Board
Dear NYSAE Members and Potential Members:

Time is so precious to all of us as we balance work and life commitments that we have to be judicious about how we spend it.  So when I was asked to join NYSAE many years ago I asked myself …what’s in it for me?

Member News

In an effort to improve engagement with young professionals and students, NYSAE has cultivated a new relationship with Columbia University SPS. NYSAE has invited students to join for relevant programming. In addition, Columbia will be a resource for NYSAE member organizations seeking talent for internships, PT or FT positions.

Do you buy things on sale that you wouldn’t have bought at regular price? I have long been skeptical about the long-term wisdom and return on new member discounts. Is a modest discount a motivator to join if the value is not there at full price? Will those who received a discount rejoin at the full rate? Does discounting membership damage the association brand for members who previously joined at full price or in the market?

Ask the Expert
Question: We’re a small membership based association. My Executive Committee just asked me to put out an RFP for an audit. They are perfectly happy with the firm we’ve been using, the pricing, etc. but they believe its best practice to do this every 3 years. My feeling is, if we’re happy with the firm, why do it? Or why make another firm respond if we’re just going through the motions? Plus, they’re going to make the current firm respond. What could I say to my Board?
Message from Next Gen Co-Chairs
After more than 10 years attending this fantastic program and being involved on different levels it is my honor and pleasure to Co-Chair the 2020 Meet NY event. It has grown to be the largest hosted buyer event in the Northeast known for connecting the best of the association industry to hotels, service providers and destination experts like myself. As a member of the convention development team for the New York City Convention and Visitors Bureau I personally look forward to connecting with many existing and new clients during the event.

This year, our committee is working diligently to create one of the most exciting and innovative educational programs yet. If you haven’t registered yet, I encourage you to do so today. I look forward to seeing you on February 26th at Meet NY!
Establishing itself as a MUST attend event for the NY Association segment, I am thrilled for the opportunity to co-chair the 2020 Meet NY Program being hosted once again at the fabulous NY Marriott Marquis. I look forward to this annually for the chance to bring together key players in our industry while also providing relevant education, valuable networking opportunities and the chance to catch a hit Broadway Show. We are excited to welcome new and old friends and to deliver hopefully another exceptional experience!

Sponsorships, conferences, educational programs, certifications, associations are looking into every angle to embrace new avenues of revenue, while at the same time looking to strike the right deal with hospitality partners, corporations and vendors to build strategic alliances. How you ASK can determine whether you just make budget or whether you’re calling in the Brinks trucks.
