American Associations Day is the only legislative fly-in where association professionals like you can connect with Congressional offices and share your story on important association issues, like the DOL overtime rule, tax reform, and the importance of federal employee attendance at association meetings.
This unique opportunity allows you, as an association professional, to create connections with policy-makers that will not only advance the association industry, but your own organization as well. Join the ASAE Board reception and network with leaders in our field.
The event is open to any association executive, staff member, or leadership volunteer that is passionate about association issues and wants to make a difference, as well as meet and network with fellow advocates from across the country. Registration is free, and out-of-town attendees are eligible to receive a scholarship of up to $300 to reimburse travel costs if they visit their members of Congress. The education session on March 15 is worth 3.5 CAE credit hours.
To register for American Associations Day contact Mary Kate Cunningham, ASAE Public Policy Department staff, at 202-626-2787 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Associations have achieved so many legislative successes over the past few years: defending association meetings, repealing the new 1099 requirement, protecting the charitable deduction, adding nonprofits to a small employer tax credit, and promoting association meetings as economic drivers. Those successes are due to association executives creating lasting connections with their members of Congress. American Associations Day is your chance to create those connections and lay the groundwork for future legislative successes, both for the association community and your own association.
