The American Society of Association Executives (ASAE) is the membership organization and voice of the association profession. Founded in 1920 and headquartered in Washington, D.C., ASAE now has more than 35,000 association CEOs, staff professionals, industry partners, and consultant members in over 7,400 organizations[1] ASAE sponsors the Certified Association Executive (CAE) professional certification program.[2]

In 1963, ASAE's board created the ASAE Foundation with the stated purpose "to advance the science of association management, to diffuse and cultivate knowledge and understanding of associations, and to uphold the high standards of associations generally."[3]

ASAE publishes Associations Now, a monthly journal with a daily news email.[4]
