GSAE Membership Options

We offer a variety of membership categories to serve the needs of association professionals and vendors to the association community. Please choose the membership option that best fits your position by clicking on the membership type or following the links at the end of each description.

 

 

Association Professional # 1

Individual (Association Professional) Membership ($195) is open to full-time professionals (30 hours or more per week) of voluntary, trade, professional, philanthropic, technical or similar organizations. These members receive all member services and may vote and hold office. To find out more information about Individual Membership, click here.

Association Professional # 2 + from the same Organization

Individual (Association Professional) Membership ($150) is open to full-time professionals (30 hours or more per week) of voluntary, trade, professional, philanthropic, technical or similar organizations. These members receive all member services and may vote and hold office.

GSAE utilizes a tiered dues structure, so this category is for the 2nd and any subsequent GSAE members from the same organization.  To find out more information about Individual (Association Professional) Membership, click here.

 

Corporate/Supplier Membership

Firms and corporations, while not engaged in the management of an association, have interests in the profession or are engaged in related activities, and support the objectives and purposes of the association. The company or firm, as the GSAE member, designates a representative to receive member services and may vote in elections and hold office.

Other Membership Types

In addition to Individual and Corporate Memberships, GSAE offers other types of membership. 

  • Affiliate Member ($83.00): These members have a special interest in association management, while devoting less than 50% of their time to such duties. Privileges include five luncheons a year at the member rate, publications and special meetings at member price. This category is not for those who qualify as corporate members.
  • Retired Member ($32.50): This category is for association managers employed in the field for at least ten years and who were members of GSAE for three years preceding retirement. Privileges are the same as those of affiliates.
  • Student Member ($25.00): Students may join if enrolled in curricula for nonprofit programs at Georgia colleges and universities. Membership includes quarterly luncheons (exception Holiday Luncheon), Connections magazine, monthly e-newsletter and discounts on conferences, workshops and educational programs.

The Fine Print

The Georgia Society of Association Executives exists to advance the profession of association management and to enhance the professionalism of association executives. GSAE offers a variety of programs and services to meet this mission. Anyone employed at least half-time by a nonprofit association or agency or a company managing a nonprofit entity may join as an individual member. Individual memberships are retained by the individual, even if employers change. Memberships are not transferable to others. Corporate memberships are retained by the company, and memberships are transferable within the corporation. The membership year runs on a calendar year, from January 1-December 31. 

Dues are pro-rated per quarter.  Renewal in full is required the following January.  If you join online, the payment amount will calculate automatically.  Dues to GSAE are not deductible as charitable contributions for federal income tax purposes. However, dues payments are 100% deductible by members as an ordinary and necessary business expense. Federal ID #58-1344340.
